Truck Accidents

Springfield Truck Accident Lawyer You Can Trust

Accidents involving tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and other large commercial trucks in Springfield can be very serious. Due to the large size of such trucks, accidents involving smaller vehicles often result in severe injuries. That's why it's important to have an experienced Springfield truck accident attorney working for you.

Truck accidents on Interstate 291 and I-91 can be especially serious since trucks on these highways often travel at a high speed. And the faster a truck is going when it crashes into another vehicle, the more serious the accident.

We know all about these accidents. That's because the attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone have been dealing with serious truck accidents for decades. There's no substitute for real-world experience. That's why we want to meet with you. We want to put our knowledge to work for you.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

Who is Liable for an Accident with a Big Rig?

Determining liability after a semi-truck accident requires an in-depth investigation. The truck driver can be found liable (legally responsible) if the accident resulted from their negligence (e.g., distracted driving, fatigue, or violating traffic laws). However, liability may also extend to the trucking company if they failed to enforce regulations regarding driver hours, vehicle maintenance, or property cargo loading.

In some cases, a truck or truck parts manufacturer can be held responsible if a mechanical failure due to a defect caused a crash. Additionally, if an accident was caused by improper loading or unsecured cargo, the company responsible for loading the truck could be liable.

Tough Cases

What Makes Truck Accidents Complicated?

There are many different legal issues people often encounter after a truck accident. The most common issues we regularly help people with at our law firm include:

  • Trucking companies not returning phone calls
  • Insurance companies pressuring people to accept a settlement offer
  • Truck drivers denying doing anything wrong
  • Trucking companies refusing to provide internal records, including inspector reports and log books kept by truck drivers

Getting Fair Compensation

What is the Average Truck Accident Settlement?

A settlement for a truck accident may fall between $50,000 to several hundred thousand dollars. Cases that involve severe injuries can lead to settlements and awards that reach into the millions. The amount depends on the extent of your injuries and the impact they have on your quality of life and earning capacity.

A Springfield truck accident lawyer from our law firm can determine the true value of your claim and fight to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. If we can’t reach a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company, we’ll be prepared to file a truck accident lawsuit and take your case to trial.
