Pursue Compensation For Serious Injuries

Since commercial trucks are substantially larger than private vehicles, the injuries caused by trucks in automotive accidents tend to be severe, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Fractured limbs
  • Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Wrongful death

The costs associated with these injuries can become astronomical. From the initial hospitalization to ongoing rehabilitation, your bills can quickly skyrocket. Some people even face bankruptcy due to insurmountable expenses. However, if you contact Blake Jones Law Firm we can help you seek full compensation for your damages.

Our Practice Areas

Truck Accidents: Collisions involving 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles can have catastrophic consequences. Our attorneys have a proven track record of handling truck accident cases, holding negligent trucking companies and drivers accountable for their actions.

Driver Negligence: We understand that not all truck accidents are mere accidents. When a truck driver's negligence, such as fatigue, distracted driving, or driving under the influence, leads to a devastating accident, we will pursue compensation for the victims and their families.

Trucking Company Liability: Commercial trucking companies must adhere to strict safety regulations. When they cut corners or fail to maintain their fleet properly, they put innocent lives at risk. Our team is experienced in investigating and exposing trucking company negligence.

Broker and Freight-Forwarder Liability:  Commercial freight brokers, sometimes called “Logistics Companies” select the motor carrier on behalf of a shipper; unfortunately, brokers frequently select the cheapest option, not the safest option, putting drivers on the roadways of America at risk.

Defective Truck Parts and Maintenance: In some cases, truck accidents are caused by faulty vehicle components and/or substandard maintenance. Our attorneys have the resources and expertise to identify defects and pursue claims against manufacturers or other responsible parties.

Cargo and Load Securement: Improperly secured cargo can lead to serious accidents, especially in the case of 18-wheelers carrying heavy loads. We will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident to determine if improper load securement played a role.

Skilled At Handling Third-Party Liability

Truck accidents usually have very complicated issues of liability. Often, more than one party can be liable for an accident. We will help deconstruct your situation so that we can recover maximum compensation for you. Often, more than one party can be liable for the accident; the driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer, the transportation broker, freight forwarder or shipper may all be partially to blame.
