Big Rigs, Semi-Trucks, Tractor Trailers, they go by many different names. These machines and their drivers are a staple of the American way of life. The old saying goes, if you have it, a trucker brought it to you. The vast majority of the operators of these semi-trucks are professional and do their absolute best to follow the rules of the road when operating their fleet. Unfortunately, there are operators of big rigs that don't understand the dangers that are present when a truck driver doesn't follow the rules and adhere to the best practices established in the industry. When truck drivers take chances and prioritize getting the "job done" over being safe it is often the motoring public who pays the price. An unsafe operator, an unsafe truck or a combination of both traveling down the highway can and ultimately will lead to innocent people being injured or killed.
Trucking companies are often sophisticated and well-funded adversaries. From the outset of a collision, they will unleash an army of investigators and defense lawyers upon an injured party. These agents of the trucking company will investigate and do everything possible to shift blame or diminish the value of an injured person's claim.
