How We Can Help

In order to prove liability, it is critical to understand the common causes and contributing factors related to truck accidents. Our Pikeville truck accident attorneys will conduct thorough investigations to discover important evidence that helps to prove wrongful conduct and accident fault. Common causes of accidents include poor vehicle maintenance, violations of service hours, safety violations, truck defects, distracted driving, and other negligent or reckless conduct. Our attorneys will discover and obtain cell phone records, available accident footage, prior documented violations, driver background reports, witness statements, and accident reports.

Because of the severe nature of truck accident injuries, our attorneys will gather evidence related to your injuries including medical records and medical bills. They will also hire any necessary experts such as medical experts to provide consulting services, conduct independent medical examinations, review and interpret medical records, and provide expert testimony. Financial experts may be needed to help demonstrate the value of lost income and other lost contributions when injuries lead to permanent disability or death.

Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accident injuries are often devastating because of the mass and force involved in truck collisions. Trucks may weigh up to 80,000 pounds and sometimes more and the amount of time it takes for trucks to stop in emergencies is significantly longer than that of regular passenger vehicles. It is also not uncommon for truck brakes and tires to fail causing an accident or contributing to the severity of the accident and injuries.
