Trucking Accident Attorneys

Semi-Truck Accidents in Virginia

Accidents with semi-trucks or commercial trucks involve a very different set of issues compared to a normal automobile accident. These types of accidents can involve a significant level of damage and are often fatal or leave victims with very significant injuries. For this reason it is extremely important to hire an attorney that is uniquely qualified and understands the complex nature of trucking accidents.

Our firm has been dedicated to helping innocent victims of trucking accidents over the past three decades and has developed an expertise in Virginia trucking laws. We have extensive experience in truck injury cases and have represented clients throughout the state of Virginia. Our trucking accident attorneys are dedicated to aggressively pursue the justice and compensation that our clients deserve.

Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Lawyer?

 If you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial trucking accident, you will need an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights. Who you hire as your attorney is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. 

Accidents that involve trucks or tractor-trailers can be devastating for the victims who sometimes don’t survive the crash. This leaves surviving family members to bring a wrongful death claim in order to protect their financial future. Because truck accidents can carry multiple lines of insurance and responsible parties these cases should be handled by attorneys that have a strong track record of handling truck accident claims.

The major trucking companies will hire lawyers immediately after a truck accident and have them on the scene the same day, if possible. We believe it is in your best interests to do the same. Once retained we will send our accident investigation team to secure and investigate the scene, take witness statements, photographs and gather other supporting information.Check out our list of frequently asked questions on why hiring the best lawyer is so important and what we do to help you get the justice you deserve.

Holding Trucking Companies & Their Insurance Providers Responsible

Knowing that they face the potential for legal action being taken against them, trucking companies spend huge sums of money on insurance for their drivers. If you have been involved in an accident, these insurance providers will often do everything in their power to minimize your claim and either attempt to settle for as little as possible or deny responsibility altogether. With truck accidents, it is especially important to contact a lawyer quickly to gather evidence such as truck “black box” data. This data may make the difference in your case.
