It is no secret that semi truck crashes can cause devastating accidents. When a negligent semi truck driver causes a collision, it is often catastrophic. A light truck or car stands no chance against a fully loaded commercial truck. Indeed, trucking insurance companies and trucking companies start working these cases as soon as the accident occurs, often deploying teams of lawyers to the scene within minutes of a collision. It is imperative to hire an experienced attorney immediately after a truck accident to protect your rights against these large and powerful companies.

At Summe & Summe, PSC, our goal is to document and investigate semi truck accidents and build the strongest possible cases to maximize our client's financial recovery. Some of the things we may do to bolster our clients' cases include (but are by no means limited to):

  • Reviewing data from electronic onboard recorders (EOBRs) on trucks;
  • Hiring accident reconstructionist, if necessary;
  • Obtaining Department of Transportation and police reports;
  • Interviewing accident witnesses, and gathering evidence;
  • Retaining additional expert witnesses, where needed;
  • Identifying the federal regulations applicable to the issues of your particular case;
  • Aggressively pursing claims, and presenting the best possible case against the insurance and truck companies;

We have experience with all of the common causes of semi truck accidents, from driver fatigue to lane drifting and maintenance issues. We are experienced with working with experts to identify the negligence that took place.

There are many regulations that apply specifically to the commercial trucking industry. Because of this, these types of cases are different, and more complex than your average car accident. Federal regulation, state driving laws, and commercial driving rules control how long a driver can be on the road to how their truck is inspected and maintained. We are familiar with these rules, and we know how to identify that a violation was the cause of a serious truck accident.

If you are injured in a collision with a commercial truck, then let the attorneys at Summe & Summe, PSC work to get you the best possible recovery. We have the experience needed to navigate the maze of federal and state law applicable to these types of cases. We are committed to helping truck accident personal injury victims achieve justice and will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve under the law.
