Accidents involving trucks and semitrailers frequently result in catastrophic injuries or even death due to the sheer size of these commercial vehicles.
Because the businesses connected to the operation of commercial trucks have so much at stake, they rely on highly skilled lawyers to defend their interests when one of their trucks is involved in an accident. In addition, there may be several entities responsible as a result of multitiered lease agreements, insurance coverage issues, driver contracts or defects in the truck itself.
Clearly, personal injury lawsuits involving semitrailer accidents get complicated quickly. It is vital to retain the services of a law firm that has the resources and know-how to hold all responsible parties accountable when a truck accident results in serious injuries or death.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, the attorneys at Blank, Moorstein & Lipshutz, L.L.P., in Rockville, Maryland, have the experience, skill and tenacity to fight for full compensation. And we represent you at no risk to you financially. Our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay for our services unless we obtain a recovery for you.*
We uncover the facts that win cases. Most trucks manufactured in the U.S. since the 1990s have "black boxes" that are designed to capture key data regarding the operation of the truck, including average speed, highest speed, time driven and more. Our experience has taught us what information builds winning cases and how to access that information. It is imperative that a timely investigation is initiated to examine the black box and the vehicles involved any time a serious accident occurs.
When multiple factors contribute to an accident, then multiple parties can be held accountable. We explore every avenue for financial recovery.
We have a thorough understanding of the extra maintenance required to keep large commercial trucks safe for operation, as well as the numerous state and federal rules and regulations required for truck maintenance and truck drivers.
One example of our meticulous preparation paying off for a client in a truck accident case occurred when our attorney, Stuart Lipshutz, discovered documentation from a recent repair revealing that a key bolt had not been replaced in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines. This evidence was the "smoking gun" that allowed us to win a generous and meaningful settlement despite facing numerous insurance companies and their high-powered attorneys.
