Commercial Trucking Accident Lawyers

Plymouth, Taunton and Bridgewater trucking accident lawyers helping you recover

Because of the size and weight of tractor-trailers, accidents involving them are almost always catastrophic. You deserve compensation to pay for crucial medical care and regain your financial security. If you have been seriously injured or your loved one was killed in a commercial trucking accident, our truck accident lawyers in Taunton are immediately available to assist you. With our 38 years of combined experience, we have the skills and determination to help you and your family through the tragic situation.

Holding responsible parties accountable

In addition to the driver’s negligence, often other people and companies are at fault for 18-wheeler wrecks. For example, an exhausted driver may have been pushed by greedy distributors and suppliers to speed, take narcotics, or forgo sleep to deliver a load more quickly. Likewise, the owners of the tractor and trailer may have skipped necessary repairs to cut the costs of operating the commercial truck. Our truck accident lawyers in Plymouth hold all responsible parties accountable — often suing multiple individuals and corporations to maximize damage recovery for accidents involving:

  • Sleep deprivation
  • Illegal drug use
  • Operating while under the influence of alcohol (OUI)
  • Careless driving
  • Speeding
  • Text messaging or calling on a mobile phone device
  • Jackknifing trailer
  • Unevenly loaded or overloaded trailer
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Tire blowout
  • Failed brakes
  • Poor roadway conditions

Thorough investigation of the crash site

Most large corporations have risk-management teams whose purpose is to assess damages and minimize costs to the company. As law enforcement converges on the scene, these companies send investigators to begin the process of damage control. Our Taunton truck accident lawyers act quickly to combat their skewed findings. We send our own investigators to the scene and conduct thorough discovery, including:

  • Photographing the scene of the accident
  • Measuring skid marks
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Obtaining independent mechanics’ reports
  • Subpoenaing the companies’ records
  • Investigating accident history of the driver and companies
  • Noting other contributing factors — such as signs placed too close to the highway or construction debris

“I don’t put my client in a position to settle. I put them in a position to win. I will gladly try your case, competently and aggressively.”
