TRUCKING ACCIDENTS:

More serious and fatal than your typical automobile crash is that of the tractor-trailer. Often referred to as “Semi’s,” “Big Rig’s,” and “18 Wheelers” these accidents require an attention to detail and investigation above and beyond the everyday fender bender. While these vehicles are a major part of the supply network that keeps American businesses running smoothly, they are also extremely dangerous in the hands of a careless operator.
 
While most trucking accidents occur at high speeds on the highway, even low-speed impacts can have catastrophic results. The difference in size, freight and weight between standard automobiles and these trucks is often a recipe for serious injury, if not death. Studies show that 85% of those killed in truck accidents are the occupants or passengers of the smaller vehicle. After a trucking accident it is important to act immediately to protect you and your loved ones unfortunately involved.
 
Federal Guidelines and Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles to retain certain documents and accident information following an incident involving their trucks. Therefore investigators are often on the accident scene within hours including both local law enforcement and representatives for the trucking company. It is imperative that you call The Robinson Law Group at 1-877-LAW-CALVIN so we can secure and examine all available information, documents and in certain circumstances send our investigators out to the scene of the accident on your behalf.
 
While truck driver error is a common cause of accidents, there are other factors to consider. Unfortunately, business profits and cutting overhead costs often take precedence over highway safety. Companies taking shortcuts can pose a serious risk to drivers sharing the roads with these massive trucks. Examples included malfunctioning brakes, broken safety lights, wrongly inflated and low tread on tires and drivers falling asleep at the wheel. We understand the complexity associated with these accidents and The Robinson Law Group is dedicated to helping victims of truck driving negligence obtain justice.
 
We have the financial resources to take on the biggest insurance companies with confidence. Our commitment to our clients is to assure that they be fairly and quickly compensated for their pain and suffering, unpaid medical expenses and lost wages. After your accident the trucking or insurance representatives may attempt to contact you, ask you to provide a recorded statement, and minimize their liability. Do not discuss your accident with them or anyone before calling The Robinson Law Group for a FREE CONSULTATION at 1-877-LAW-CALVIN. Our lawyers can help you evaluate your claim, deal with the insurance companies, secure experts to testify in your case and litigate in court, if necessary.
