Overloaded Trucks/Falling Debris
Commercial trucking companies routinely ignore state and federal regulations designed to provide for the public safety. Overloaded trucks, open loads of logs or gravel not properly restrained, a lost tire rolling across the road – our lawyers’ search for the responsible parties for a tractor trailer accident may begin at the warehouse that loaded the 18-wheeler, or with witness statements about the carelessness of the driver in failing to clear debris from the road.
Discuss your truck accident claim with a lawyer before signing anything!
If a member of your family was seriously injured or killed in a truck accident, it is important to get the advice of a lawyer with the appropriate experience before making a statement to any insurance company or accepting a settlement offer.
At Seaman & Associates, our attorneys have the skill, the resources, and the commitment to handle the difficult and complex investigations necessary to identify the causes behind an auto-truck accident and to demonstrate the liability of those responsible to a jury.
Who is liable for your truck accident claim?
Truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries such as brain damage, amputation, or paralysis. As such, more than one source of compensation will be required to provide for the cost of life-long medical expenses. Our attorneys will investigate all possible sources of compensation for your loss.
In addition to liability on the part of a trucking company, the owner of the goods on an overloaded trailer, or a negligent driver, our attorneys may find that a manufacturer is liable due to a dangerous or defective product – the poor design of a cement truck may have caused a rollover, or the tire may have exploded due to a manufacturing defect.
