Why Truck Accidents Can Be More Severe

Not every Virginia personal injury attorney has the ability or the capacity to handle a complicated truck accident lawsuit.

At Lichtenstein Law Group PLC, our entire practice is built on arguing these types of extremely complicated cases in a courtroom.

Our decades of experience in handling catastrophic Virginia truck accident injury lawsuits gives our attorneys extremely valuable insights into the strategies that are needed to pursue compensation in these cases. We will prepare extensively for an intense battle, knowing that:

  • There is a lot of money on the line. The sheer magnitude of injuries that tractor-trailers can cause in an accident means these trucks must carry more insurance than the average car. And the more money there is on the line, the harder insurance companies will fight to keep it in their coffers.
  • The state and federal government put serious regulations on trucking companies and drivers. Our knowledgeable attorneys understand the ins and outs of the complex trucking industry regulations, and we will shine a harsh spotlight on any violations of the Virginia Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association rules.
  • There is a vast amount of evidence to wade through. Our firm has the resources and the know-how to evaluate every piece of relevant information we pull from the truck’s data recorder and the driver’s log, as well as other types of evidence. Sifting through this much evidence is extremely time-consuming, but it is imperative to build a strong case for maximum compensation.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Catastrophic Truck Accident

Unlike a car accident, where one driver is typically held liable, there are many parties who may be held accountable in a catastrophic truck accident. These may include:

  • The trucking company
  • The shipper
  • The owner of the truck’s cargo
  • The company responsible for maintaining the vehicle
  • The owner or owners of the tractor and the trailer
  • The truck drivers themselves

Because there are so many different parties involved, there are also many different insurance carriers that must be dealt with. Navigating the complexities of a catastrophic truck accident case requires a deep level of knowledge about the industry and a serious commitment to a detailed investigation.

At Lichtenstein Law Group PLC, we have both the knowledge and the commitment to see these cases through to a jury verdict.

We can help when so much is at stake.

Common Factors in Virginia Truck Accidents

Common Factors in Virginia Truck Accidents

Truck drivers and trucking companies are held to a strict set of standards and laws that aim to keep the roadways safe for all drivers in Virginia. These regulations limit the number of hours a trucker can drive without a break; ensure proper training and licensing; demand driver supervision; require proper loading and securing of cargo; and dictate vehicle maintenance and repair standards.

Violations of these standards are often the root of what leads to a catastrophic truck accident

  • A fatigued driver from having to travel for too long of a stretch without a break
  • Prescription drug use or over-the-counter drug use by the driver
  • Improperly maintained brakes or other equipment
  • An interruption in traffic flow such as congestion
  • Speeding and driving aggressively in a rush to get to the next stop
  • Lack of knowledge about the roadways
  • Road issues such as construction or maintenance
  • Failure to stop at a stop light or crosswalk
  • Failure to look around and/or see the other vehicles
  • Sudden shifting of unsecured cargo

Just one or a combination of these or other factors can lead to a life forever changed by a catastrophic injury truck accident.
