Why Did the Accident Happen?

Truck accidents often leave behind a tangled web of tragedy. Through the mess of steel and debris, it can be difficult to determine the exact cause of the accident. That is precisely why we work closely with investigative experts to examine the entire accident scene. Through our efforts, we strive to establish accountability and determine exactly how the injuries or wrongful death occurred.

In our investigation of the truck accident, we will find answers to the following questions:

  • Was the driver adequately trained?
  • Was the driver fully alert, attentive and sober?
  • Did the trucking company offer incentives to entice drivers into operating recklessly?
  • Did the truck receive the necessary maintenance?
  • Was the truck loaded properly?

All truck accident cases are handled on a contingency basis, meaning you pay no attorney fees unless we are successful.
