Recovering Full Compensation for Severely Injured Truck Accident Victims

Accidents involving big rig truck accidents nearly always involve catastrophic or fatal injuries. Unlike car accident litigation where each driver is covered by a consumer auto policy, there is seldom an opportunity to settle a severe truck accident claim for the policy limits. 

Even in the worst injury cases, truck accident defendants will have a great deal to protect, and the plaintiff will need to prove their claim in detail with complete documentation on the medical, vocational, and rehabilitative aspects of the injuries suffered. The attorneys of CLU, LLP have the experience in complex litigation to assemble the best case possible for each client.

Accident Investigation (Trucking)

Accidents involving trucks, semis, tractor-trailers, big rigs and eighteen-wheelers often result in catastrophic injuries or death. We seek recoveries that address the true costs of work-ending and life-changing injuries, or a wrongful death in your family.

According to the United States Department of Transportation, accidents involving big trucks result in death at a far higher rate than other motor vehicle collisions. Victims of truck accidents may be entitled to collect damages for items like medical bills, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, permanent disability, and property damage.

Our attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable about the intricacies involved in truck accident cases. We have extensive familiarity with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations, safety programs, hours of service regulations, and state and federal legal and regulatory requirements specific to the trucking and transportation industries.

While concentrating on meticulously ensuring all damages are pursued, our lawyers also take a highly proactive approach to causation and liability issues that need to be resolved. Our experience and record of success allows us to commit the investigative resources necessary to develop the relevant facts that will lead to a successful resolution of a case. Our lawyers work with experts in the fields of accident reconstruction, highway engineering, transportation safety, industrial design and the trucking industry itself to determine what went wrong.    

Our experience with high-stakes, complex personal injury litigation enables us to readily assemble the facts, call on the right expert team, and carefully assess your immediate and long-term damages.
