18-Wheeler Accidents

Accidents involving 18-wheelers lend for very different cases from those of automobile accidents because of complex laws and regulations that dictate the driving requirements of an 18-wheeler. A driver having a load that is too large or showing negligence in how they operate their 18-wheeler, for example, could be vital to your case.

If you or a loved one are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, there are a variety of procedures that need to be followed to ensure you obtain rightful compensation for injuries or death that may have occurred. Truck accidents may involve the following legal proceedings:

  • Lawsuits against the driver of the truck
  • Lawsuits against the trucker’s employer
  • Fighting two or more lawsuits at one time

We know that cases involving 18-wheeler accidents can feel overwhelming and unfamiliar. That’s why our legal team at Waitz & Downer is ready to use our experience to guide you and your loved ones through every step of the process so that you can get your life back on track following your accident.
