How Truck Accidents Differ From Other Types Of Accidents
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is important that you retain a personal injury lawyer who understands how to effectively manage truck accident claims, which can involve factors that do not apply to other kinds of collisions.
Our founding attorney, Jonathan Coleman Sapp, understands that commercial truckers and the entire trucking industry are held to high safety standards. Professional truckers must have a commercial driver’s license, obey federal trucking laws and take appropriate measures to prevent unnecessary risk of harm to other drivers. Trucking and insurance companies also have their own legal teams whose job is to minimize the amount of compensation paid out to accident victims.
Let us handle the legal and insurance matters while you focus on what matters most: your health and your family.
Common Causes Of Trucking Accidents
Truck accidents are often the result of truck driver errors, which may include truck driver fatigue; failure to properly maintain lights, tires and brakes; driving too fast for adverse weather conditions; following other drivers too closely; speeding; distracted driving; and other forms of truck driver negligence. Additionally, many trucking accidents are the result of improper loading of cargo.
Our firm has the knowledge and resources to investigate these accidents, as well as hold the trucking company and the insurance company accountable for the compensation they owe to accident victims.
Tractor-Trailer Accidents Causing Catastrophic And Fatal Injuries
Given the size and weight of tractor-trailers and other large commercial vehicles, truck accidents often result in serious or fatal injuries. Jonathan Coleman Sapp is an experienced personal injury lawyer who can provide the high-quality legal representation you need if you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury resulting from a truck accident.
In addition to handling personal injury cases involving moderate injuries such as broken bones or soft tissue damage, Jonathan Sapp has represented clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries such as paralysis, spinal cord damage, loss of limb, burns, disfigurement and brain injuries. He has also handled wrongful death claims on behalf of family members who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents.
Our firm handles all aspects of truck accident claims, including:
- Investigate the cause of an accident
- Examine which parties may have been responsible
- Identify insurance coverage that may be available to help an injured client
- Prepare each case for trial, as that is the best way to position our clients for a successful claim, even if the case is ultimately settled outside of court
At our firm, you will have an experienced and dedicated personal injury attorney who will aggressively pursue the maximum available compensation for your specific injuries.
