Trucking Accident Lawyer
In trucking accidents, motorists can be severely injured, and many do not survive.
If you or a loved one are involved in an accident involving a commercial truck, the consequences can be devasting – often much more so that when the accident involves a car. Furthermore, trucking companies can usually afford expensive and skilled lawyers, so it’s important to have a trucking accident lawyer on your side who has the know-how and the perseverance to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Investigation following a trucking accident
The investigation that follows a typical trucking accident is usually much longer and more complex than the investigation that follows a normal motor vehicle accident. When you retain a trucking accident lawyer from the Alam Law team, we will immediately send out letters to every possible defendant or nonparty in the case to make sure that evidence is preserved. We will also secure the black box information from the truck and your (or your loved one’s) car. In addition to wanting to see the car in-person, our trucking accident lawyers will ensure they have sufficient evidence to build your case and have access to:
- The trucking black box.
- Daily travel logs of the trucker.
- Information concerning the truck including its weight and type of cargo it was carrying.
- Information about trip inspections.
- Annual inspection certificates.
Who is held accountable for trucking accidents?
One of the things that makes trucking accident cases so complex is that there can one or many parties responsible. Trucking accidents may be caused by driver error, but they may also be caused or contributed to by equipment failure, improper cargo loading, defective roadways, skipped maintenance checks, failure to comply with hours of work legislation. Consequently, those who may be held accountable can include the driver, trucking company, manufacturer’s or even the local government responsible for road upkeep.Schedule A Free Consultation
What kind of compensation can I expect from my case?
Again, the answer to this question will vary from case to case, but because truck accidents often involve very serious injuries or even fatalities, the damages can be substantial. Plaintiffs may be compensated for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or get settlements for wrongful death of a loved one. When our trucking accident lawyers review your case, we discuss what you might be entitled to. While we cannot undo the damage or losses that occurred, we will make every effort to ensure the accident does not also inflict financial hardship on you or your family.
