Leesburg Truck Accident Attorney

Overcoming obstacles in truck accident cases

Few events are more frightening than your car colliding with a tractor-trailer. Most people are grateful to survive such an accident and others are not as fortunate. In any case, it is wise to put a skilled and knowledgeable Leesburg truck accident attorney on your side. Trucking companies are known for assembling legal teams to reduce their costs in litigation or settlements. To level the playing field, you need an advocate to protect your rights.

At Simms Showers LLP, we investigate accidents and recover evidence to help injury victims recover deserved compensation when a truck driver or trucking company is negligent.

Virginia Truck accident statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tracks car accidents by states. The NHTSA reported 76 accident fatalities in Virginia in 2011 involving large trucks. To put this statistic into perspective, across the United States in 2011, there were 3,754 fatalities and 64,181 injuries involving large trucks.

Because of the sheer size and momentum involved with a truck accident, victims often suffer serious injuries or fatalities. Having a Leesburg truck accident attorney at your side ― dealing with insurance companies and building a strong case ― can help ensure the compensation you recover is adequate to deal with all of your expenses.

Stiff regulations for the trucking industry

The U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) heavily regulates the trucking industry, monitors crash statistics and fatalities and conducts comprehensive on-site investigations. It also handles off-site investigations and motor coach reviews to determine crash causes and reduce the likelihood of accidents. Hours-of-service violations, cargo weight violations and traveling on roads that prohibit large trucks are just a few examples of violations that can lead to accidents.

Skilled lawyers with experience handling truck accident cases develop a profound understanding of trucking industry rules and regulations. When conducting their own investigations, they recognize regulatory violations that point to negligence. In any case, violations form a strong basis for pursuing an accident claim. Through our in-depth knowledge of injury law and trucking regulations, we work tirelessly to maximize our client’s recoveries in truck accident cases.
