What Type Of Truck Injured You?

While the image that comes to mind for many when they hear the term “truck accident” is an 18-wheeler crashing on the highway, there are many other types of trucks capable of causing serious injury and death when not properly operated. Our attorneys handle many types of truck and commercial vehicle accident cases, including:

  • UPS and FedEx trucks
  • Delivery vehicles
  • Cube trucks
  • Contractor vans
  • Couriers
  • Mail trucks

Liability for truck accidents often lies with more than one party. In addition to the driver being responsible for injuries, the company that owns the vehicle, the company responsible for maintenance of the vehicle, or the company responsible for training drivers could be at least partly responsible for damages.

As part of our comprehensive representation, we will promptly and thoroughly investigate to determine who was responsible for the injuries suffered in a truck accident. We are adept at locating and coordinating multiple insurance policies and working through the insurance issues often present in truck cases. In short, you can rely on us to uncover and pursue all possible avenues of compensation on your behalf.
