Any motor vehicle accident can be life-altering, but truck accidents often take a larger toll due to the size of the vehicle involved. In many cases, these accidents involve 18-wheelers (also known as semis or tractor-trailers) that are owned and operated by large companies.
At Giarrusso Norton Cooley & McGlone, P.C., our Boston truck accident attorneys handle complex legal issues pertaining to personal injuries and the ensuing settlement negotiations or courtroom litigation involving the negligent party and his or her employer or insurance company.
We have obtained substantial results for individuals throughout Massachusetts in commercial trucking accidents caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Inattentive drivers
- Poorly trained drivers
- Driver fatigue due to overworking employees
- Cargo that has shifted or fallen
- Poorly maintained equipment or a lack of inspection on truck parts
- Drunk and impaired drivers
- Poorly maintained roadways
- Construction zone accidents
- Poor traffic management
- Defective storm drain structures, frames, grates and covers
- Defective asphalt application
- Improperly stopped or broken down vehicles along the highway
Trucking companies and the employers of transportation and freight workers are required to comply with specific safety regulations to help prevent accidents from happening. Not every law firm has the experience and legal resources necessary to achieve results in such cases that require thorough investigation and strategic planning.
Our team of respected trial lawyers uses its collective knowledge in every case it handles, and we do so while working closely with each client we represent. Cases are not passed off to associates or paralegals. When you contact our firm, your attorney will work directly with you through every part of your case to help you get the most favorable results possible.
