Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck Accidents

Due to their size and weight, 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks can pose serious threats to other vehicles on the road. Any encounter with a truck — whether you were rear-ended or run off the road — is likely to result in life-changing injuries or fatalities.

Established in 1957, the law firm of Cooper Levenson handles a full array of truck accident cases, including those that involve:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Insufficient driver training
  • Automotive part defects
  • Structural defects in the road

Our motor vehicle accident team is organized and equipped to pursue each step of the compensatory process, paying close attention to every detail – and always keeping the client fully informed on a real-time basis. We are never too busy to respond to questions, and we make a point of returning all phone calls promptly.
