There are over 500,000 accidents each year that involve commercial trucks and semi-tractor trailers. Most of these accidents result in catastrophic injury or death to the occupants of a passenger vehicle involved in these types of accidents.
The legal claims against a commercial trucking owner or operator are often complicated and deal with numerous federal laws and regulations. Evidence must be collected as soon as possible after the accident happens. Litigation of these types of cases is often required because even though liability may be clear, commercial trucking companies rarely want to settle these claims.
