Overloaded Or Unsecured Truckloads
The safe delivery of cargo begins with proper loading at the point of departure. Unfortunately, some truck operators overload their trucks while others fail to secure loads or transport loose items in open trucks. These practices can result in a serious accident when a truck becomes unstable or cargo spills out onto the roadway.
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm is a law practice that provides vigorous representation on behalf of truck accident victims and their families. Our commercial truck accident lawyers have the resources and advocacy skills needed to win against trucking companies and their insurance companies. When we represent you, we will seek full compensation for your financial losses and pain and suffering.
Investigating The Accident
Our law firm will act quickly to preserve important evidence and begin building your case. We will take the appropriate steps to investigate promptly and properly the scenes of an accident, even involving an investigator when necessary, to further document the accident scene, including examining skid marks, the debris trail, and other evidence that can tell us how the accident happened. We can also subpoena trucking company records such as the time the truck had been on the road before the accident, its speed, and other important information that a “black box” may contain, as well as the bill of lading or other documents concerning the cargo that was on the truck.
Obtaining Medical Care For Accident Victims
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm has extensive experience in cases involving injuries that typically result from truck accidents, including back, neck, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. In the event there are serious injuries requiring ongoing medical care, we are typically able to assist our clients in obtaining medical care without the client having to pay for that treatment “up front” or out of pocket. Instead we can help arrange top-notch medical care with providers who agree to wait until the case is resolved before being paid. Our goal will be to help you get all of the compensation you deserve.
