Truck Accidents

If you or a family member has been seriously injured in a semi-truck accident, seek medical attention right away. Then contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible — preferably before you talk to any insurance company.

The Law Office of David A. Bolson has a track record of success in representing people who have suffered serious personal injuries in tractor-trailer accidents. We understand how serious truck accidents can be — and how your injuries can affect your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Accidents involving large trucks and tractor trailers are one of the major causes of traffic related deaths in the US. A typical large commercial truck can weigh as much as 30 times that of a passenger automobile. Due to this size disparity, any collision between a truck and a passenger vehicle is likely to result in disastrous consequences.   Therefore, trucks are subject to special traffic laws and regulations to minimize risk posed to the public.  Our knowledgeable team can uncover violations of regulations related to truckers in order to help victims prevail in their case.

Large trucks are sophisticated vehicles that require high-level, systematic maintenance in order to function in a safe manner.  For example, trucks are supposed to be tested to ensure the functionality of all parts including brakes, brake lights, steering, reflectors, fluid levels, and of course, the engine.  Failure to perform the requisite maintenance or keep detailed records of such inspections can result in fatal traffic accidents.

Another reason why truck accidents are responsible for a significant number of fatalities is due to the fact that truck drivers typically work long hours and are under pressure to meet demanding deadlines.  The resulting fatigue and exhaustion on drivers can severely impair their judgment, often resulting in catastrophic accidents with their commercial vehicles.

Trucking companies as well as their insurers often conduct their own “analysis” of the accident that is designed to put victims at a disadvantage. It is imperative to retain an attorney who can perform their own thorough investigation that will demonstrate the liability of the trucker who caused the accident.

Truck accident victims should not speak with or accept a settlement offer from insurance companies before hiring an attorney to represent their interests. Insurance companies try to maximize their own profits by attempting to pay accident victims a settlement that is lower than what they may be entitled to. Generally, victims may receive compensation for the cost of medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

From the beginning to the end of your case, attorney Bolson will work with you personally. He will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your truck accident, investigating the scene, obtaining any police reports, speaking with key witnesses and determining what caused the accident. As a personal injury lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, he understands the many potential causes of truck accidents:

  • Overworked drivers
  • Drunk driving/drug use
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Improperly secured loads
  • Badly constructed roadways

He will identify who is liable for your injuries and fight to get you the compensation you need and may be entitled to by law.

Our legal team will address all of your concerns involving loss of work, medical bills and future medical expenses. We also help families who have lost loved ones to wrongful death in truck accidents.
