"They bring compassion, action, energy, and expertise to what are otherwise devastatingly helpless feelings of loss and heartbreak. If I ever have a loved one involved in a truck accident again, they would be the first call I would make." Jennifer Tierney, board member, Citizens for Reliable and Safe Highways (CRASH) and daughter of James Tierney, killed in a truck accident, Kernersville, N.C.
Fire-related death is a leading cause of trucking accident fatalities. Fires start after the impact of the crash. We work with fire cause and origin experts who can trace the progression of the fire to find the source of the ignition. Fuel tanks contain large amounts of fuel, which can ignite and spread fires. A knowledgeable investigation can often determine that a trucking company violated an inspection requirement or otherwise failed to comply with a federal standard that would have prevented the crash and resulting fire. People often die from smoke inhalation or suffer catastrophic injuries such as severe burns. We have the knowledge and expertise to establish the cause of the crash, the ignition source of the fire, and the legally responsible parties. We use these facts to pursue fair compensation for the loss of your loved one.
Although no amount of money can reverse your loss, we believe holding the responsible parties accountable through monetary compensation allows families to move forward in the grieving process. Entire families are affected by these tragic deaths. Our primary goal is to obtain compensation for our clients. Our second goal goes beyond obtaining monetary compensation. We fight for changes within the trucking industry. We fight for changes in the policies and procedures that allow negligent and unqualified drivers to go out on the road and injure innocent people. We want to accomplish a marked change in the trucking industry. We isolate and identify the particular cause and where the trucking company was deficient. Clients appreciate our advocacy and colleagues admire our tenacity.
It’s important to contact us immediately if you or a loved one has been the victim of a truck crash. Investigating crime scenes and preserving evidence needs to be done as quickly as possible. We can often be on a plane the next day after you contact us. Consultations are free and attorneys' fees are on contingency.
