It is estimated that trucking accidents account for 12 percent of all traffic fatalities every year in the United States. Collisions involving a passenger vehicle and a semi, tractor-trailer, or other commercial vehicle are rarely minor. Due to their sheer size, trucks often cause significant damages and serious injuries to the individuals and vehicles involved in the crash.

Seeking full compensation for accident victims
Truck collisions often involve significant damages and can involve claims for personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage against the transportation company, insurance companies, drivers, and other potentially liable parties. As soon as we accept a case, we launch an extensive investigation to pinpoint the origin of the crash and establish liability.
Our attorneys work with investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and other professionals to find out what happened, including investigating whether the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, and if the truck was properly maintained.
We have specific and substantial knowledge of the rules and safety requirements in the heavily regulated trucking industry, including requirements for logging driver hours, rest periods, maintenance requirements, training, prohibitions against driver texting, and all of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Standards. We also have particular skill in tracking down commercial policies and dealing with insurance carriers that try to deny truck accident claims.
At Miller & Ogorchock, SC we handle cases on a contingent fee basis, so there is never a charge for any attorney fees or costs unless we win your case with a settlement or verdict, and you get paid.
