Motor vehicle accidents and trucks: Options for victims

Trucks are on virtually every road and highway in West Virginia and across the country. Due to the constant presence, size and weight of these vehicles, truckers have a special responsibility to drive safely and cautiously. When motor vehicle accidents are caused by negligent or dangerous truckers, victims have the right to to seek recompense for their pain and suffering. 

One of the most common reasons for accidents involving trucks is distracted driving. Truckers are susceptible to distraction, just like other drivers; and like other drivers, they are liable for damages caused by negligence. Another common cause for truck accidents is fatigued driving. Victims may not think that they have a case, but we know how to investigate these accidents and determine what parties may be held financially responsible.

These types of cases can be quite complex, and it takes a skilled and experienced lawyer to effectively navigate the challenges at hand. We know how to gather pertinent evidence, such as log books and other documentation, to build a strong case on your behalf. We are committed to a full and fair recovery for you, and we will explore every legal option available.

If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you may have been offered a settlement by the insurance company. Before you accept the terms of a settlement or make any important decisions, seek the counsel of a West Virginia lawyer experienced in these types of motor vehicle accidents. Learn about your legal options and the civil claims process by seeking a consultation with our office as soon as possible.
