Commercial Truck Accidents Are More Complicated
At Michael L. Hawkins and Associates, P.L.L.C., we handle trucking accident cases, including the following circumstances:
- Driver error
- Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers
- Failure to maintain a truck
- Head injuries
- Wrongful death
The extent of damage and injuries is typically so much worse with truck accidents, and these cases are often more complicated than other personal injury cases. The chances for back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paraplegia and death increase significantly.
Furthermore, because trucking is a commercial enterprise, a deeper investigation is often necessary. In each trucking accident case we spend time researching company records, maintenance logs, driving logs and other records, all of which makes a significant difference between a good settlement and an inadequate one.
