Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You

There is an increasing number of semi tractor-trailers and other big rigs on our nation’s highways, and truck driver error is a leading contributing factor to crashes. Because drivers are under pressure to meet delivery deadlines, they often exceed the speed limits, drive aggressively, and follow other vehicles too closely.

Big rig drivers often spend many hours on the road without adequate sleep. Drivers experiencing fatigue are slower to react to traffic conditions and can therefore pose a danger to others on our roadways.

Distracted driving is another common cause of collisions today, and truck drivers are no exception. Truck drivers often navigate unfamiliar roads as they make deliveries and can be distracted while consulting their navigation systems or maps.

The truck accident lawyers at Burg Simpson have over four decades of experience with large commercial vehicle collisions. Our attorneys will investigate the details of your legal matter and determine the factors that led to your crash. Call now to arrange a free consultation and allow us to review your truck accident claim and discuss your legal options for pursuing the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents Are Complex

Truck accidents are typically more complex to resolve than automobile collisions because there may be multiple liable parties. Large commercial vehicles may also have more than one insurance company to provide coverage for the trucking company, the driver, the shipper, and the owner of the trailer.

Our personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson have the skills, experience, and resources to fight for you after a catastrophic truck accident. Our truck accident attorneys will investigate your big rig crash to determine the responsible parties and the insurance policies available to provide compensation.

  • Reimbursement for your medical bills, medications, and physical therapy
  • Compensation for future medical care related to the truck accident injury
  • Consideration for lost income
  • The cost to replace or repair your vehicle
