Safety should be a top priority in the trucking industry, especially due to how dangerous and destructive trucks massive trucks can be to other smaller vehicles on the road. Unfortunately, for trucking companies, safety, maintenance, and driver training are often ignored in the name of maximizing profits. Untrained and inexperienced drivers are placed behind the wheel of a truck, maintenance and safety checks are ignored, drivers are drugged, distracted, fatigued from overwork. All of these are unacceptable excuses when they cause serious injury to you or a loved one.
At JD Law Group uur team of trial attorneys has years of experience with trucking accidents, aggressively fighting the trucking companies and their insurance carriers to get our clients the compensation they deserve, including medical expense reimbursement, pain and suffering, and financial losses. We take pride in our personal service: one of our attorneys will handle your case and be there to answer your questions throughout the entire process.
Trucks Cause A High Percentage of Accidents: 1 out of 8 traffic deaths in the U.S. involves 18 wheelers (also known as “big-rigs” or “semi-trucks”). Due to their tremendous size–some weighing upwards of 80,000 pounds–and many other factors making the trucks dangerous, accidents involving 18 wheelers often cause extremely severe injury or death to those in smaller vehicles such as cars, motorcycles. Often dangerous “under ride” occurs, where the smaller cars are trapped or wedged below the trucks, causing destructive impact to the passenger areas of the cars.
We fight to get you the maximum compensation possible for your medical bills, your pain, suffering, and financial loss.
Who’s At Fault? In the trucking industry, due to the demands placed on the drivers and other personnel to complete deliveries as quickly as possible, safety and maintenance are often overlooked. When an accident occurs, many different parties may be at fault and liable, including the driver, the truck owner, truck manufacturer, maintenance providers, and others who manufactured potentially defective parts that were placed on the truck.
Investigation: After an accident, it is vital that you contact an experienced truck attorney as soon as possible to begin the investigation needed to gather evidence to support your side and establish your case. The trucking and insurance companies often send out their special teams to the accident site, where they may try to pressure you to sign documents waiving rights to a lawsuit. You need someone on your side, dedicated to protecting your rights. Our team of experienced attorneys and investigators immediately begin investigation of black box, GPS records, driver’s logs, maintenance records and other evidence before any of it is “lost” or “misplaced” by the trucking company.
Expert Witnesses: Expert witnesses may be a vital element to winning your case. JD Law Group’s team of attorneys has the experience and relationships with experts in the field of trucking accidents, such as expert witnesses in engineering, accident reconstruction, economics, and medicine who play a key roles in effective prosecution of a case.
