A commercial truck accident is devastating. The difference in size between a commercial truck and a passenger vehicle often results in horrific injuries or death for the driver and passengers of the other vehicle. During 2013, 71% of the fatalities in collisions between trucks and other vehicles were occupants of the other vehicle and 72% of the injuries were occupants of the other vehicle.

Hire an Experienced Commercial Truck Accident Attorney

If you are injured in a commercial truck accident, you need an experienced lawyer to represent you against the trucking company and its insurance company. Reasons why you want an experienced lawyer in a commercial truck accident claim include:

  • Level the Playing Field – Commercial truck accidents typically result in high claims because of the catastrophic injuries caused by collisions between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles. Insurance companies for the trucking industry aggressively fight truck accident claims. They have teams of professionals who begin working on the claim within hours of the crash. You need a legal team on your side that will protect your right to receive a fair and just settlement for your injuries. A commercial truck accident law firm levels the playing field to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by big insurance companies.
  • Federal Trucking Regulations – Trucking laws are complex; however, an attorney familiar with truck accidents understands these laws and how to use those laws to prove the truck driver or the trucking company is at fault for the accident. If the attorney can prove that the driver and/or the company violated trucking laws, they can be held accountable for your injuries. The burden would then be on the driver or the company to prove they were not negligent in causing the truck accident.
  • Multiple Defendants – In a truck accident claim, you may have multiple parties who are liable for the accident. For example, the driver may have been driving too fast; however, the company who loaded the cargo did so in a way that contributed to the accident. The truck company may have failed to inspect the truck but the repair shop used faulty parts when repairing the brakes. An experienced truck accident attorney understands the complexity of a case involving multiple defendants and how to identify all defendants to maximize your chance of recovery.
  • Navigating the Court System – If the trucking company and/or its insurance company do not treat you fairly, you may need to file a truck accident lawsuit in order to receive the compensation you are entitled to under the law. An attorney understands the law regarding personal injury claims and court rules including the strict time limits for filing a truck accident lawsuit.

Jereme S. Testimonial

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.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

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!

Matt H. Testimonial

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
