The aftermath of a crash involving a tractor-trailer truck, semi or other large truck is chaotic. Victims often need emergency medical care and law enforcement officials push for a rapid cleanup of the accident scene.

Holding Drivers and Companies That Put Others at Risk Accountable
Establishing that violations of trucking laws occurred can be critical in your case for financial compensation that meaningfully addresses medical costs, lost wages and other damages. We ask the right questions and tap the right resources to expose negligence such as:
- Driver fatigue related to exceeding maximum on-the-road hours, lack of rest breaks and other regulatory violations — traceable in some cases to unreasonable, illegal demands by the trucking company
- Driver distraction leading to unsafe turns, lane changes and other dangerous maneuvers
- Overloading or improper loading of 18-wheelers and other transport vehicles
- Inadequate truck inspections or negligent maintenance leading to brake failures, steering failures, trailer/cargo detachment and other major accident risks
