Get Compensation After A Truck Accident

Any accident on the road can have serious or even catastrophic consequences, but commercial vehicles pose an especially great risk: the sheer size of semitruck, or tractor-trailer, means that small mistakes by the truck driver or others on the road can easily lead to serious injury or death. And the danger is compounded when the truck is carrying dangerous cargo such as flammable coal or oil that ignite in the event of a crash.

Because of the greater threat posed by large trucks and other commercial vehicles, the owners of operators of these vehicles are required to follow more stringent safety regulations than drivers of personal vehicles. That means that in the event of a truck accident, the legal process for holding a negligent party accountable is very different from the one that comes after an accident involving smaller, private cars. For instance, professional drivers carry a Commercial Driver's License (CDL); the additional training and higher standards that come with this certification mean that more actions leading up to an injury might legally be considered negligent.

Knowledge And Experience In Personal Injury Law And Commercial Vehicle Operation

At Thomas Braun Bernard & Burke, LLP, we are committed to helping injury victims obtain the maximum compensation available. We understand that no amount of money can restore one's health or life, but we work hard help our clients hold negligent parties accountable under the law.

Attorney John Burke, who handles the majority of our personal injury cases, grew up around 18-wheelers and holds a CDL. This truck-driving background gives him significant advantage when working on accidents involving 18-wheelers. An accident involving an 18-wheeler is not the same as a typical car accident and must be approached differently. We have the insight to properly handle a case involving an 18-wheeler, which increases the chances of holding the responsible party accountable and getting our clients the compensation needed to make them whole.
