Considering the extreme size and weight difference between your average 18-wheeler and your average car, it’s no surprise that the injuries and property damages caused by a truck accident are so severe. There are several difficult situations that trucks can find themselves in that lead to a crash. Some of the more common types of truck accidents include:

  • Rollover – Trucks have a high center of gravity because of their massive size. This means any sudden movements of the truck can throw it off balance and cause it to flip.
  • Tire Blowout – Truck tires blow out for many reasons. They are susceptible to a tack or other sharp object that can puncture them just as they would a car tire. But other factors can also lead to a blown tire, such as excessive speed, underinflation, or a manufacturer defect in the tire.
  • Underride Accidents – This refers to when a car ends up sliding under a truck either from the side or the rear of the vehicle. This is often due to negligence on the truck driver’s part, such as braking suddenly or failing to use a turn signal. It can also happen if the truck has damaged parts that have not been repaired properly.
  • Jackknifing – Dramatic image in movies, the cab’s sliding toward the trailer at a 90-degree angle can happen due to a cargo imbalance, excessive speed, or an unsafe lane change.

However, truck accidents occur. If you’ve been involved in one, you probably suffered severe injuries. It’s likely to take a long time and significant medical care to heal. Unfortunately, some aspects of your life may never be the same.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
