When you choose to work with us, you are working with attorneys who have over 30 years of experience and a track record for success.
What Makes Trucking Accident Different?
Trucks are large vehicles. When they are involved in accidents, they almost always include serious injuries. To get behind the wheel of a commercial truck, drivers must undergo specialized training. In addition to state and federal mandates, many trucking companies have their own programs for commercial drivers. As professionals, these drivers are held to a higher standard of care when they enter our roadways.
From the perspective of the truck driver, if he or she is the one who is injured they are often at a disadvantage because they likely live outside of the area. Having competent and experienced local representation near the location of the accident is advantageous. The attorneys at Gergen, Gergen and Pretto have better access to law enforcement and medical personal as well as superior knowledge of the vicinity which results in a more thorough and accurate investigation and representation.
In any trucking accident claim, there may be multiple parties responsible for the damages in addition to the driver. The driver’s employer, a vehicle manufacturer, a freight loading company and others may all bear some responsibility in a trucking accident. Whether the truck caused the accident or a passenger vehicle played a role, our firm is committed to finding the truth of what happened and protecting our clients’ rights.
Our personal injury attorneys will make home and hospital visits if you can’t meet with us at our office. When we accept your case, we start an independent investigation of the incident to gather the necessary evidence to pursue action.
