Trucking Accidents

MLG extensive automotive expertise and full attention to building a strong case for damages when proving fault sets our team apart from other firms.
Even a minor accident can turn into a major crash when colliding with commercial trucks and have undeniably devasting effects that last a lifetime.

Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, crushed limbs or amputations and orthopedic and soft tissue injuries are just some of the serious side effects of colliding with a commercial truck. Damages and debts rack up quickly. As a result, we ramp up our investigations of all aspects of the accident to build a strong case for fault and damages such as:

  • Commerical truck drivers actions that can establish fault include
    • Failure to yield to your lawfully executed action
    • Swerving into your lane (physical contact not required to find fault)
    • Speeding – demonstrates reckless behavior
    • Cutting you off – demonstrates reckless disregard
  • Fault that may lie with the city or municipality
    • allowing a dangerous condition of the roadway to persist
  • Commercial trucking manufacturers can be major contributors to your injuries
    • design defect proven through engineering discovery
    • manufacturing defect of the truck or trailer or any of it’s parts

All of this gets expensive. You need a law firm with the breath and depth of experience in the automotive industry as well as the financial resources to support an often lengthy and arduous legal battle on your behalf. Your life has likely been irrevocably changed by your accident; we seek to secure the necessary funds needed to support you on your long road to recovery.

Sandwiched by Semi-Truck

We’ve all envisioned this nightmare scenerio – sandwiched between two huge trucks on the freeway. Tragically, this happened to our client, Morgan. Morgan was only 19-years old when she was literally sandwiched between a huge 18-wheeler semi-truck and a flat-bed-trailer. It all began when a Semi Truck Driver negligently rear-ended a vehicle and that vehicle struck Morgan’s vehicle in the rear. Then the 18-wheeler struck Morgan directly; TWICE, forcing her in between the semi-truck and flatbed trailer. Thus, Morgan suffered three impacts.

Morgan’s life was forever changed in those few moments. She suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and now suffers from serious cognitive and memory deficits along with major personality changes and physical disabilities that will need continual medical care for the remainder of her 60+ years of life.

Ripple Effects for Life

Morgan’s case illustrates how an accident with these towering, 10 ton tractor trailers and 18 wheelers can have ripple effects that may result in catastrophic injury, crippling one for life. True to our conviction to never, never, never give up, we are continuing the fight for justice on behalf of Morgan and her entire family as so many have suffered.
