The effects of a collision between a passenger car and commercial truck are often particularly devastating because commercial trucks are larger and heavier than most passenger vehicles. Many commercial truck accident injuries require long-term treatment and care, or may result in lifelong disability or loss.
When you are recovering or caring for a loved one following a serious motor vehicle accident, you most likely do not have the energy to make a personal injury claim. You may feel overwhelmed by the process. At Stevenson Whelton LLP, our experienced lawyers will guide you through the process. We work tirelessly on your behalf so you can concentrate on recovery.

An Advocate Following Serious Accidents
Commercial truck drivers must pass specific requirements to be licensed to drive 18-wheelers and other big rigs. Commercial shipping companies in turn have the responsibility to ensure all their drivers are properly trained in the operation of their vehicles. When these safeguards are not followed or are poorly implemented, those injured may have the right to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
Some of the most common commercial truck accidents are caused by:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Driver inattention due to texting or emailing while driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Carrying unsafe or poorly secured loads
- Mechanical failures
- Tire blowouts
If you or your loved one suffered serious or catastrophic injuries, such as brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, as a result of a commercial truck accident, our personal injury lawyers can help you make a claim for much-needed compensation. We take time to understand your particular needs and advocate on your behalf in negotiations with the insurance company. When necessary, we will engage the necessary medical and industry experts to ensure all of your short- and long-term needs are included in a final settlement.
