Bus & Lightrail Accident Recovery
18-Wheeler Truck Accidents
A fully loaded semi tractor trailer can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When it is traveling at highway speed and collides with a passenger vehicle weighing about 3,000 pounds, you do not have to be math wizard to understand that the people in the smaller vehicle are at high risk of injury and death.
The attorneys of Daly Law Firm understand truck accidents and the trucking industry. We help people injured in semi truck crashes receive compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, property damage, lost wages and other damages.
Evening the Odds
The trucking industry is big business. Accidents are seen as a cost of doing business. Big trucking firms and their insurance companies have formed rapid response units that can get to the scene of an 18-wheeler wreck within hours of the accident. They take photos, interview witnesses, and gather evidence to support their version of the case.
For this reason, it is extremely important for injured people to find a lawyer who knows how to even the odds — and to do so as quickly as possible. Our lawyers will work with investigators and accident reconstructionists, as necessary, to obtain and preserve important evidence. This includes:
- GPS records
- Information from the truck’s event data recorder — the black box module
- Drivers’ logs
- Statements from witnesses
- Photos of the scene
Identifying Regulatory Violations
We will analyze this evidence, looking for discrepancies between, for example, the driver’s log and the black box data. Our knowledge of the trucking industry allows us to recognize when trucking companies or truck drivers violate one or more of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, including:
- Hours of service
- Driver training and licensing
- Use of controlled substances
- Safety equipment
- Size and weight of vehicle
- Inspection, repair and maintenance
- Transportation of hazardous material
Our lawyers have obtained significant verdicts and settlements for clients injured in semi truck accidents. We have taken on big insurance companies on behalf of injured people, and won. You can rely on us to help you obtain fair compensation for the full extent of personal injuries from accidents.
