Truck accident lawyers ready to fight for your rights
These accidents can be complicated because there are often many parties involved. These parties may include the driver, the company that owns the truck, the cargo owner and the manufacturer of any defective parts that caused the accident. Each party may have their own insurance company and lawyer.
We start by investigating your accident to get the facts. This often involves:
- Carefully reviewing accident reports and medical records
- Reviewing any photos or video footage of the crash
- Preserving data from the truck’s event data recorders
- Taking action to preserve information from the truck’s hours of service (HOS) logs
- Identifying and interviewing witnesses
- Consulting accident reconstruction experts and other specialists
We know where to look for evidence that a driver was speeding, distracted, fatigued, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In some cases, a trucking company may have been negligent by giving the driver an unrealistic schedule or not making needed repairs. In others, a manufacturer may have been negligent if the truck had a defective part.

Insurance companies will fight your claim for compensation because they know there is a lot of money at stake. They’ll suggest that your injuries were pre-existing or try to argue they aren’t that serious. Sometimes they’ll make you a settlement offer that falls far short of covering the damages you have suffered.
Our firm fights to help you recover the compensation you deserve. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses for treating your injuries. It includes compensation for any lost wages you suffered if you were left unable to work. We may also seek compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
It’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible after you’ve been hurt in a Decatur truck accident. The more time that goes by, the more likely it is that evidence can be lost or destroyed, and memories of witnesses can fade.
