Investigating the Accident
At The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., we conduct a comprehensive investigation of how the accident happened. Our team will work to build a strong and persuasive case designed to obtain maximum compensation for you.
We get to the root causes of truck accidents. We will investigate negligence by the driver, trucking company, and will employ experts including:
- Accident reconstruction specialists
- Expert truck mechanics to determine the condition of brakes, tires, lights, mirrors, the trailer and other equipment at the time of the crash
- Engineers regarding turning radius or braking distances
- Safety Experts
We will carefully review your case including, all driver logs, maintenance records, and the black box in the truck. We also want to assist you in getting the medical care and compensation you need to rebuild your life.
The insurance companies and claims adjusters representing trucking companies and truck drivers are often highly skilled and aggressive and present low offers of settlement designed to give you less than your case is truly worth. The trucking company and its insurance company will also hire an experienced lawyer to defend its position. You need experienced legal counsel with the ability to succeed in jury trials for your case as well.
Strong Representation for Complex Cases
Truck accident litigation can be highly complex, reflecting the fact that different defendants might be held responsible for different aspects of the causal factors that resulted in the collision, as well as the fact that the injuries suffered in heavy vehicle crashes are very often catastrophic or fatal. Our attention to detail and familiarity with the demands of complex injury litigation can help you obtain the best resolution of your case.
