What Our Clients Say

Trucking Accident Cases Are Uniquely Complex & Require Serious Investigation

The trucking accident attorneys at the Krause and Kinsman Law Firm understand the complexities involved after a truck accident. Commercial truck companies and their insurance companies will usually send representatives to determine the cause of the accident and who is at fault. These representatives are not working for you, and they will try to minimize their driver’s fault by following procedures designed to limit your recovery. After their investigation, the insurance companies will not offer you or your loved ones compensation equivalent to what you are rightfully owed.

Our attorneys will conduct our own investigation and work alongside accident reconstructionists, engineers, and other specialized experts. We will conduct witness interviews, retrieve camera footage if any is available, review accident and police reports, review medical records, and interview medical staff. Our attorneys also investigate the driver and company by investigating driving logs and records including GPS and black box data, maintenance reports, and any potential violations of state and federal law. If you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident it is likely that neither yours nor the trucking company’s insurance will cover the extent of your injuries. When drivers and commercial trucking companies cut corners you are at risk.

How do trucking accidents occur?

Occasionally, there may be a defect in the design or manufacturing of a certain part of the truck. More frequently, however, commercial trucking accidents occur as the result of the negligence of the driver or trucking company. As a result of more goods being shipped on our highways, the pressure on drivers and commercial trucking companies to get their loads delivered on time increases every day. Pressure on the driver and company often leads to overlooking or failing to look for simple details.

Who can be liable?

In order to determine who may be liable for your accident, you need attorneys who will conduct the proper investigation into the driver and companies involved. Those who may be at fault and liable include the following:

Company leasing the truck
Company leasing the trailer
Designer of the truck or trailer, or part of
Driver
Driver’s Employer
Manufacturer of the truck or trailer, or part of
Owner of the truck
Owner of the leasing company
Owner of an attached trailer
Passenger(s)
