Trucking Litigation


Accidents with large trucks are among the most serious and life threatening collisions that occur on our roadways.

Due to the dangerous nature of large trucks, numerous traffic laws and safety regulations apply specifically to these over-the-road vehicles, their drivers and the companies who utilize them. Litigation involving large trucks calls for experts such as accident reconstructionists and regulatory experts.
