Equipped to Thoroughly Investigate and Build Your Case
Sharing the road with all types of vehicles is a clear reality of driving almost anywhere in the Worcester-MetroWest area of Massachusetts. A significant percentage of serious motor vehicle accidents involve semis, tractor-trailer rigs and other large commercial trucks—and, unfortunately, the consequences can include fatalities or extremely severe injuries.
Our attorneys represent injured clients involved in a wide range of truck accidents, whether the driver of a semi or other large commercial truck is the injured party or the one accused of negligence.
Such situations can involve:
- Trucker negligence by truck drivers who were inattentive, fatigued, intoxicated, or otherwise at fault in an injury accident
- Truck maintenance issues relating to poorly maintained or non-functioning equipment that has caused injury
- Commercial transport liability for transport companies employing negligent drivers, failing to maintain equipment, or harboring policies or procedures that encourage violations of safety regulations
Our experience in truck-accident litigation can be essential when accident reconstruction, forensic engineering or other expertise is required to establish the cause of the crash and prove liability. It is also essential when a well-resourced trucking company or parent company mounts an aggressive defense, and when violations of federal regulations specific to trucking are involved.
In such cases, our experienced attorneys can be valuable assets in proving your case and securing compensation for your injuries.
Informed, Comprehensive Advocacy for Injury Victims
As a law firm with strong relationships with area labor unions—with one founding partner, Jane Eden, who is a recognized authority on workers’ compensation law—we are as sensitive to the issues faced by injured truckers as we are to those of other drivers. You can depend on us to consider potential third-party liability claims, such as those related to inadequate truck maintenance or defective parts, and all other available avenues of recovery.
We are committed to resolving your claim in the most cost-effective, timely manner possible. However, if a fair settlement cannot be negotiated, we are effective trial attorneys able to try your case effectively before a judge and jury. Costs of building a complex truck accident case can be substantial, and our law firm has the resources to advance those costs when we believe in your case.
