Succeeding In A Truck Accident Claim

Succeeding in a truck wreck claim requires a different set of skills and knowledge than succeeding in a typical car accident claim. There are entirely different laws at play in these cases. It is important that you select a lawyer who knows Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, who understands the nuances of truck accident claims and who can build a case strong enough to succeed against powerful opponents: a truck company and its insurer. At the Roanoke office of John Tinney, we come to these cases with a record of success that goes back more than 40 years.

Investigating Truck Crash Cases

We approach these cases with an understanding of the common causes of truck wrecks, including:

  • Speeding
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded tractor-trailers
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Brake, tire or other equipment failure

Of course, we never make any assumptions. We conduct a thorough investigation, working with experts in accident reconstruction if necessary to understand exactly what form of negligence took place. Our experience also means we know where to look when conducting our investigation. We know that the truck's black box may need to be reviewed with care, and we know that the logbook that first appears may not have the most accurate data. With dedication, we will gather all the facts needed to build a strong personal injury claim.

Fast Action Is Important, Starting With A Free Consultation

Do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible in these cases. Know that the trucking company and its insurer are going to be taking action immediately, doing everything possible to tip the odds in their favor. Let us get involved before any evidence is "repaired," "cleaned up" or otherwise taken out of our reach. The consultation is free.
