Truck Accident Litigation In West Virginia
Contact an experienced personal injury attorney at the Warner Law Offices if you, or someone in your family, has been severely injured in a commercial vehicle accident involving a tractor-trailer, a logging truck, a coal truck or even a delivery van. The ability of our attorneys to identify and pursue the parties responsible for your injuries can make an important positive difference in the eventual outcome of your case.
In many truck accident cases, whether the vehicle involved was a semi or a commercial pickup, multiple defendants are potentially liable for your injuries:
- Driver’s employer
- Owner of the truck or trailer
- Owner of the freight, material or equipment hauled
- Equipment lessor
The employment and contracting relationships in the trucking industry can be complex, and our experience with the investigation and proof of claims in semi-truck and commercial vehicle accident claims can help ensure that no party who might be held accountable is excluded from your lawsuit.
We also have extensive experience with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that protect private motorists by prohibiting unsafe trucking practices and by requiring regular inspections and maintenance of semi rigs, cabs, vans and trailers. The regulations also impose limits on size and weight that truckers do not always observe. Our ability to focus our investigation on the defendant trucker’s compliance with the safety rules can help resolve liability issues in your favor early in the case.
Especially in the most serious injury cases, such as those involving spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injury, burns, or severe injuries to the neck or back, our lawyers work with outstanding experts including medical and rehabilitative therapy professionals to describe in detail your present and future treatment needs and what they might reasonably be expected to cost over time. In this way, we can evaluate settlement offers or present damages testimony to a jury without having to rely on guesswork or rough estimates.
