Helping Victims Of Truck Crashes Recover Damages
Unlike most car crashes where the vehicles are similar in size, trucks or large commercial vehicles dwarf most passenger cars. This disparity in size and weight puts the smaller vehicle at a significant disadvantage in a collision. If you were the victim of a truck accident, the attorneys at Cochran & Edwards can help you obtain a financial recovery.
Heavy, Fast And Dangerous
Even when unloaded, semitrucks and hauling vehicles substantially outweigh many other vehicles on the road. Immense momentum and the size difference cause the much larger trucks to demolish nearly everything in their path in a collision or if the driver loses control.
We handle truck accidents stemming from:
- Inclement weather conditions
- Driver error or inexperience
- Poor road conditions
- Vehicle system malfunctions
- Shifting cargo
- Driver fatigue
When struck by a commercial vehicle, the driver and any passengers in the other vehicle often suffer severe injuries or death. Traumatic injuries from a truck accident typically require extensive treatment and ongoing care. The victim may no longer be able to work or attend to their daily needs without help. Securing maximum compensation ensures you or your loved one has access to continuous care without placing an unnecessary financial strain on your household.
A Difficult Opponent
Because accident-related costs are so high, trucking companies and their insurer will fiercely fight an accident claim to avoid or minimize payment. They will have an aggressive legal team ready to protect their assets — you need an advocate capable of fighting back. As experienced trial lawyers, we know how to build a strong case and successfully argue your position.
