Our Attorneys Can Hold Negligent Trucking Companies Accountable

Tractor-trailer accidents often occur when a trucking company or a truck driver bends the safety rules designed to keep our roads safe. At Barnes & Cohen our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the factors that led to your collision with a semi-truck, including:

  • Was the driver on the road for more hours than the law allows?
  • Was the truck receiving all necessary maintenance?
  • Was the truck driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
  • Was the truck driver distracted by their cell phone? Texting or making calls?
  • Did the truck driver have a current commercial driver’s license appropriate for the vehicle they were driving?
  • Does the truck driver have previous violations or accidents on their record?
  • Did the truck driver have unauthorized or underage passengers in their truck?

If you have been injured in an accident you only have 14 days before benefits may be reduced. It is essential that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible. If you fail to seek medical care within 14 days your auto insurance medical benefits may be slashed by as much as 75%. Insurance companies will argue that delay in getting treatment is evidence that your injury is minor or not even related to your accident. Additionally, make sure your doctor documents everything from your visit.

The trucking company responsible and its insurance company will do almost anything to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve. It is important that you call us as quickly as possible so that we can begin our own investigation, collect evidence and interview witnesses. With more than 35 years of experience representing the victims of accidents and their families, our attorneys know how to get to the bottom of your case.
