Tractor Trailer Accidents

Tractor trailers are the heaviest and most dangerous vehicles on the roadway.

At Cannella & O’Neal we have over 40 years of trial tested experience successfully representing personal injury clients like you who have been injured in a tractor trailer accident through no fault of their own. The lawyers at Cannella & O’Neal who focus on tractor trailer accidents know that interstate truckers must follow the regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act. When tractor trailer drivers violate the Federal laws causing injury to others they must be prosecuted and pursued for damages, injuries and/or wrongful death resulting from their disregard for the safety of others.


Remember, the trucking company starts their investigation immediately and you should not let them get the jump on trying to create a case that protects their interest, not yours. Once you call our office, you will be assigned a tractor trailer accident attorney who will personally guide a team of professional investigators, accident reconstructionists, court reporters, paralegals and others who will focus upon collecting and analyzing the evidence in the case.

In addition to witness statements and police investigations, it is very important in all tractor trailer accident cases to collect physical evidence, also known as forensic evidence. This type of evidence includes skid marks, impact points, photographs, vehicle damage, and “black box data” — many of the tractor trailers on the road today have computers on board which record speed, braking, swerving, and other data — that may be crucial to your trucking injury case.

At the outset, we will send a letter to the tractor trailer driver, company, and insurance providers to demand that they preserve and do not destroy black box data until one of our trucking experts can download and preserve that data on behalf of your case.
