No Matter How it Happened, We Can Help

Insurance companies take us seriously because they know that Paul Englander is a trial lawyer. He prepares every case to be successful at trial. We are prepared to seek maximum compensation for the lost wages and financial support, medical bills, and other losses associated with the trucking accident, and to seek punitive damages, if appropriate.

We often work closely with accident scene reconstructionists to determine the cause of the accident and who was at fault. Trucking companies are federally regulated, and failure to follow those regulations may mean the company is liable for any tractor-trailer injury or death.

Investigation may involve review of driver logs, company records, police reports, witness statements, and other evidence to understand what happened. Trucking accidents can be caused by a number of factors, such as:

  • Negligent hiring or driver training
  • Violations of traffic laws and federal regulations
  • Distracted drivers
  • Careless or reckless driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Improper load securement
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Defective equipment
