Corporate Trucking Companies
About 500,000 accidents involving large commercial trucks occur each year in the U.S., according to the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the majority of truck-related fatalities result from collisions with passenger vehicles. If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Truck drivers are commonly burdened with strict demands and deadlines by the corporate trucking companies, and many truck drivers end up speeding and even struggling with fatigue just to ensure that deadlines are met, which significantly increase the risk of an accident on the road. In some cases, legal liability for an accident can fall on the trucking company in addition to (or even instead of) the truck driver, such as when the truck was not properly maintained or inspected or the driver was not adequately trained to handle the responsibility; liability typically begins with the company’s owner and may extend to managers, supervisors, dispatchers, or further down the chain of command.
While trucking companies are legally obligated to ensure that their commercial trucks are properly inspected and maintained at all times, even the truck’s manufacturer may be legally liable for an accident if it directly resulted from the defective design of the truck’s equipment, such as faulty braking systems, tires, or axles. While corporate trucking companies certainly have the insurance coverage – and a lot of it, at that – to settle personal injury claims, the insurers also ensure their profits by paying out as little as possible or nothing at all for such claims, and that’s where we come in: our experienced personal injury attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident to hold the at-fault parties accountable for their negligence and ensure that you are fully compensated for the damages you’ve sustained.
We at Agruss Law Firm are proud to serve our fellow citizens in personal injury cases, especially when you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a large truck, and we are fully committed to protecting your rights and ensuring that the other party is held legally accountable when negligence occurs. We will fight until the very end to ensure that you are fully compensated for all injuries and losses resulting from the accident, including medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering, and you won’t owe us a dime for our services.
