Semi Truck & Big Rig Truck Accidents

Semi trucks, also known as big rig trucks, are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road due to their size, weight, and cargo. When these vehicles cause an accident, other drivers and passengers can sustain major injuries. From broken bones and lacerations to whiplash and spinal cord injuries, injuries sustained from a semi truck accident lead to expensive medical bills and long recovery times. Trucking accidents and car accidents are treated differently, and it’s best to have an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side to guide you through the process.

The Cannella & O’Neal team has over 40 years of experience in representing trucking accident clients, and we are ready to take on your unique case. Since these injuries can take months to recover from, we’ve learned that it is crucial to act quickly to start building your case so you can get the compensation you deserve for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income, and more.

Why hire a Semi Truck ACCIDENT Attorney

When a car accident occurs, the at-fault driver is usually the only person you have to deal with. With semi truck accidents, on the other hand, the driver, as well as the driver’s employer and/or trucking company, will try to work against you. When a collision with a big rig truck occurs, the driver of the truck’s insurance company is likely to start working immediately to investigate. Some insurance companies may even send someone out to the scene of the accident to gather statements. Victims should never give a statement in case they try to use their words against them in the long run.

Contacting a semi truck lawyer at Cannella & O’Neal following an accident will allow us to start working on your case at the same time as the negligent parties start to build theirs. Whether it was the driver’s fault for ignoring a road sign, texting and driving, or driving while fatigued, or the fault of the trucking company for sending out an overworked driver, many factors come into play in a trucking accident. Cannella & O’Neal is experienced enough to figure out who owes you compensation and how to maximize your payout after such a traumatic accident.
