what we do

get justice.
get answers.
make OUR COUNTRY safer.

We help people who have been injured in large truck or bus crashes get justice. Justice most often means compensation for the harm and losses from the crash, but that’s not all justice can mean.


Our goal is to make the world safer. Unfortunately, not everyone prioritizes safety. When they don’t, we hold them accountable. By hitting them where it hurts most, their pocketbooks, they are forced to pay attention to safety. That’s how we affect change.


It’s not a car crash. It’s different.


The Fear is Real

Every year large trucks and buses kill more than 5,000 people. And that figure is up 31% since 2011. 150,000 people are injured annually by large trucks and buses. There are over 12.5 million commercial semi-trucks and buses on American highways. These large trucks and buses share the same roads we drive on. Many of the tractor trailer trucks weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, which is 28 times more than the average car.


Common Causes of Accidents

* Negligent hiring * Negligent training * Negligent supervision * Negligent maintenance * Distracted driving All truck and or bus accidents come down to a single root cause: someone failed to follow the safety rules. The truck and bus industry is highly regulated with safety rules in place to protect us all. Most accidents come down to companies cutting corners motivated by profit.

When Experience Matters

Large truck and bus accident cases are unique. There are over 10,000 regulations and laws that apply to the trucking and bus industry that don't apply to everyday car accidents. I've been handling truck and bus accident cases for over 30 years. I started my career working for an insurance company that insured the largest transport trucking company on earth. I know the strategies the large insurance companies will employ to pay you as little as possible. We have a documented winning track record in federal and state courts against some of the largest truck and bus companies and their insurers in the USA. See the award-winning television series Insider Exclusive, Justice in America who featured one such case:

Collect Evidence
The seriousness of a semi-truck accident means law enforcement will arrive at the scene of the crash to conduct an investigation. The result of an investigation is a formal police report containing the evidence that is associated with the case. In addition to the formal police report contains evidence, as your injury attorney, we conduct a separate investigation to uncover the information law enforcement may have missed. Time is important in serious truck and bus collisions because skid marks and gouge marks on the pavement can disappear over time, debris from the crash is removed, witnesses move or conveniently forget what they saw, roads get repaired or repaved, bushes get trimmed back,  important signs go missing, or video is taped over.
Send a Demand Letter
After an extensive investigation, we will valuate your case. Our firm will send a demand letter to the negligent parties insurance company. If we together decide it is advantageous to litigate your case we will send notice to the opposing counsel. Your demand package includes many things which may include: a detailed description of the crash, police investigation, private investigator report, photographs, videos, witness statements, medical bills and records, damages, economic expert findings, expert analysis, accident reconstructionist findings, expert opinions, the federal law and state law governing your civil case.
Negotiate a Settlement
The trucking company’s lawyer and/or insurance company can reject the monetary value listed for compensation in the demand letter or respond with a counteroffer. If your lawyer receives a counteroffer, the next step is to either accept the counteroffer or make another counteroffer. The back and forth can continue with the issuance of several counteroffers made by both parties.
Participate in a Trial
If negotiations fail to end your personal injury claim, then your attorney will file the proper paperwork required to initiate a civil lawsuit against the trucking company. Working with a semi-truck accident lawyer is especially important when the time comes to litigate your case. Representing yourself can hurt your case because of your lack of litigation experience.

Prompt and thorough investigation and preservation of the accident scene is crucial. The trucking company will quickly dispatch its own investigators right after it learns of the crash to collect evidence. This evidence can quickly disappear before anyone has a chance to review it. You will need a team on your side who will save it before it fades away.
Our team of investigators will respond to the scene of an accident as soon as possible. Our team will document skid marks, debris, as well as oil, gas, and radiator fluid stains at the scene. Our investigators will also obtain police reports, motor carrier records, witness statements, photographs, and safety logs. We will secure the “black box,” an electrical recording device that contains vital information about the truck and driver.
Getting evidence for your case on your own is nearly impossible. Demand letters must be sent to get what’s needed to prove your case. You are only able to do this with the best truck accident lawyer. Contact our truck accident lawyer today for a free consultation.

  • Gather as much information at the accident scene as possible, including names and contact information for everyone involved, including any witnesses.

  • Take photos of the other party’s insurance card and registration. You are not required to give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company.
  • Get the name and badge number of the police officer, and give a very brief statement. Now is not the time to assign or concede fault.
