Truck accidents often result in serious injuries or wrongful death. Even while dealing with the devastating physical effects of the accident, the injured victims and their families must also concern themselves with resulting lost wages, medical costs and future financial issues. Many of them do not where to begin. Joe Dunn is experienced in the handling of trucking accident claims. He will identify the responsible party or parties and seek the maximum compensation on your behalf.
If you have been seriously injured or you lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, contact Joe Dunn as soon as possible. He will help collect the compensation you deserve.
Truck accidents involving government-owned vehicles have a shorter statute of limitations than those involving private company trucks. Don’t wait to get the assertive and competent legal representation you need.
Truck drivers are regulated on how many hours they can drive in order to reduce fatigue and road weariness. In addition, the trucks must be properly loaded and maintained. Failing to follow these safety measures can result in serious or fatal consequences, particularly for the drivers of smaller vehicles.
Joe helps clients injured in truck accident cases involving:
- Truck driver swerving into oncoming traffic
- Drivers falsifying log books to make it look like they took adequate breaks
- 18-wheelers sliding on ice or snow
- Failure to properly load or secure cargo
- Failure to carefully look for other vehicles before changing lanes
- Defective parts on either the truck or the trailer, causing the trailer to detach
- Truck driver negligence or falling asleep at the wheel
