Injured in an 18-wheeler accident in Maryland?

Have you been injured in a truck accident? Is a loved one suffering because of complications related to a collision? Each year, thousands of Americans are seriously injured or killed as a result of a truck-related accident. Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are large, fast-moving vehicles and at the hands of a reckless or negligent driver, they can quickly become moving weapons. Unlike simple traffic accidents, truck accidents are often more complicated and determining liability is the job for an experienced personal injury lawyer. At Trunnell Law, LLC, you can rest assured that your case is in good hands. Our experienced staff stands ready to aggressively pursue monetary compensation on your behalf and ensure that justice is served to the liable party.

Determining Liability

When you work with our firm, we will take immediate action to determine who is at-fault for the accident. There are numerous parties that could be held liable for your injuries. Our team will look into police records, driver logs and witness statements to create a solid foundation for your case. One or more of the following parties may be held liable in your situation:

The Driver
Federal organizations hold truck drivers to strict regulations regarding how long they can be on the road, the distance they are allowed to travel in a given time frame and how much alcohol they can consume before reaching the legal limit. If it is found that the driver failed to abide by these rules, or if they operated their vehicle in an unsafe or negligent manner, they will be held liable for your injuries.

The Owner
In some cases, trucks and trailers are under lease from owners. If it is found that it was the owner's duty to properly maintain the truck to keep it in a safe operating condition and they failed to do so, the owner may be held liable for your injuries. Our team will review records and contracts to determine if the owner or leasing company acted in a negligent manner.

The Manufacturer
There are some cases where a product failure was the cause of the accident. If a brake, tire or other crucial vehicle part failed to operate properly, the manufacturer of the part may be held liable for injuries. This involves thorough investigation on behalf of an experienced and tenacious legal representative, which is why you need to contact Trunnell Law, LLC immediately.

The Shipper of Loader
Cargo can cause a truck to become top heavy and if the cargo was not properly secured prior to transport, it may slip or roll and cause an accident. Flatbed trucks, open-top trucks and heavy or wide loads are most commonly involved in these accidents. If you were injured as a result of cargo moving, falling or coming loose, you may be able to hold the loader accountable for your injuries.
