Trial-Tested Truck Accident Lawyers
Truck accidents present a number of unique situations in personal injury law, beginning with the fact that the injuries sustained in these accidents often are catastrophic and sometimes permanent. The raised stakes require that both sides retain experienced, effective legal counsel.
At The Truitt Law Firm, we represent clients in truck accidents that occur throughout the state. We have a strong track record of both litigating these cases and defending trucking companies against personal injury lawsuits. As defense counsel, we know that trucking companies can be a target for exaggerated claims or attorneys looking for a windfall at the expense of the company. We defend these cases aggressively.
We also know how to represent legitimately injured clients who have suffered damages as a result of these accidents. Our experience allows us to add value to your case if you or a family member is in need of legal representation.
Experienced, Insightful And Assertive
Federal laws require commercial trucking companies to maintain extensive records regarding the operation and maintenance of their vehicles. When a trucking accident occurs that causes serious injuries, we conduct a thorough investigation that includes a meticulous review of all pertinent records.
We have the resources necessary to determine whether any number of factors that are frequently cited in tractor-trailer accidents played a role in the accident. These include:
- Driver fatigue or driver carelessness
- Improper driver training
- Improper maintenance
- Overloading or improperly loading a truck
Seasoned Litigation Lawyers
Our attorneys have taken nearly 500 cases to trial. We understand not only how to build strong cases, but also how to present them in a comprehensive and convincing manner.
We combine the investigative and litigation skills that are normally found at much larger firms with the personal attention and commitment to clients that are more characteristic of smaller firms. No case is too complex.
We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your truck accident case and provide a candid assessment of what you might expect. We offer free consultations and work with injured parties on a contingency fee basis, so you will only pay an attorney fee if we recover compensation for you. For insurance defense cases, we offer alternative billing arrangements and reasonable rates.
