It only takes an instant for your life to be forever changed. A truck accident can happen in a flash, on the highway, on city streets, or a mile from your home. Driver error, negligence, reckless driving, equipment failure or even the rare case of aggressive behavior can result in a variety of life-changing injuries.
If you or a loved one were injured by a truck of any kind, you have the right to seek compensation.
The personal injury attorneys of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy have experience representing those injured in truck accidents. We understand the need to get proper medical care, recover lost wages and compensation for past and future pain and suffering.
If someone close to you was killed in a truck accident, you may be entitled to additional compensation for the loss of your loved one, and the loss of that person in providing for those left behind such as spouse, children and/or elderly parents.
Unlike most car or motorcycle accidents, a truck accident typically involves a corporate entity, such as the company that owns the truck or employs the truck driver. This can complicate any attempt to receive significant compensation.

Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
You vs. the trucking company is usually an unequal match. A larger corporation may have significant legal and financial resources available to make your truck accident lawsuit less effective or produce a smaller settlement compared to what you truly deserve. You may be tempted to trust them, and may want to quickly resolve matters related to the accident. At this point it’s in your best interest to not discuss the case with the involved party or the insurance company until you consult with an attorney. Your personal injury attorney is dedicated to protecting you, your rights and your future.
