Although most are highly trained and professional, truck drivers often fall into the same bad habits that many drivers exhibit on our nation's roads and highways today. Talking on cellphones. Texting while driving. Adjusting the radio or setting the GPS system. All are common examples of dangerous and negligent actions that lead to motor vehicle accidents. But when a truck driver is distracted, the consequences for everyone on the road around the multi-ton big rig is put in serious danger.

A Negligent Truck Driver Won't Usually Admit to Distracted Driving
It may not always be possible to know whether the truck driver was distracted and could not maneuver or stop the rig in time to prevent the crash. We are experienced litigation professionals who know how to investigate truck accidents to find the underlying evidence that often needs to be peeled back from the surface. When necessary, we work with accident reconstruction professionals and highway engineers to help us investigate, prepare and present the clearest case for truck driver liability.
Before you talk to an insurance adjuster or the truck company, it makes sense to understand your rights. We will explain your legal options for pursuing full and fair compensation that will cover your medical costs, lost earnings and other financial damages for a lifetime, if necessary.
