Putting Your Life Back Together After A Truck Accident
Any car accident can cause serious damage, but when large vehicles are involved, the consequences are magnified. One false move involving a large commercial vehicle or truck can result in long-term or fatal injuries for the other people involved.
As a truck accident attorney, I work with injured people throughout St. Clair County and the state of Alabama, helping them recover maximum compensation for the injuries they sustained due to the negligence of another party. My clients are my top priority at all times and that means making sure their medical and financial struggles are addressed through experienced legal representation. I firmly believe that a strong community is built on the well-being of its residents, and I strive to protect those I represent with a focus on their long-term well-being.

Tractor-Trailer Accidents May Have Many Liable Parties
Any company that owns a commercial vehicle must properly train its employees and manage their workload to avoid driver fatigue. Many truck accidents are caused by factors associated with the driver’s employer and not necessarily driver error.
Accidents may be caused by:
- Driver fatigue caused by inadequate breaks or excessive overtime on the road
- Failure to properly maintain equipment and machinery
- Shifting freight caused by improper loading and unloading
- Speeding or other examples of reckless driving
- Not seeing the passenger vehicle
If you have been in an accident, make sure to collect important evidence or, preferably, enlist the help of an experienced lawyer to assure things are handled properly. Take photos of the accident, gather witness statements and contact information, obtain independent medical assessments, report information to your insurance company and avoid signing any settlement agreements until you have confident legal representation.
