Collisions with Tractor Trailers
A fully loaded tractor-trailer (also often called an 18-wheeler) can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds.

In commercial vehicle accidents, the trucking company and its insurance carrier typically dispatch investigators to the scene within hours of the crash. They may interview witnesses, take photographs and conduct a comprehensive probe with one goal in mind: to direct fault away from the driver or the trucking company.
The big rig may have been on the road with poorly maintained brakes. The trailer may have been overloaded. The driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel. While you may think the fault of the truck driver and company is clearly established, they will work hard to minimize liability.
Don't wait to take legal action. Level the playing field today. We can begin investigating on your behalf and uncover the facts to support your case.

This time limit is known as the "statute of limitations." Don't miss out on your opportunity to be fairly compensated. Remember, you didn't do anything wrong. You shouldn't have to pay for someone else's mistakes.
