Wrecks involving tractor trailers, or 18-wheelers, usually result in serious bodily injuries or death. Thousands of people are killed or severely injured as a result of unsafe driving, oversized loads, or drivers being pushed beyond their safe limits.
Whenever an accident occurs involving semi-trucks, investigative teams for their insurance companies scramble to the scene within minutes of the tragedy, interviewing law enforcement and witnesses, taking photographs of the scene, vehicles and victims, measuring skid marks and obtaining computerized crush analysis data from the vehicles. All of this is done to gain an advantage over you or your family, because such accidents typically result in serious life-threatening injuries or death of a loved one.
Be sure and secure your own investigative team to protect your rights by calling our team of trial lawyers who will immediately go to work securing facts and evidence to fight the insurance companies.
