Truck Accident Cases We Handle

Trucking accident cases are often much more complex than auto accident cases. They often have different laws, rules and regulations that apply to safe truck, 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle operation. That is why it is very important that if you or a loved one is hurt or killed in a trucking or commercial vehicle accident, you should consult an experienced trucking accident attorney that has the proper resources and knowledge that is necessary to fight to get you the compensation and justice that you and your family deserve. The Cochran Firm has been recognized nationally as the Truck Accident Law Firm of The Year 2020-2021 by the Trial Lawyer Magazine and The National Trial Lawyers, having obtained over $100 million of verdicts and settlements in truck cases that year alone.

Trucking accident lawsuits can also be very complex because they usually involve multiple responsible parties, including but not limited to:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Cargo companies
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Other negligent drivers
  • Government entities
  • Defective or dangerous roadways

A crucial part of any lawsuit involving a big truck is determining who is at fault and in order to determine who that is, the cause of the accident must be fully determined, often with the required use of reconstructive experts. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver negligence
  • Driver fatigue
  • Unreasonable schedules
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
  • Defective equipment
  • Poorly maintained truck
  • Lack of driver training and experience
  • Intoxication
  • Dangerous weather conditions
  • Defective roadways
  • Excessive speed
  • Negligent drivers of other vehicles

The Cochran Firm utilizes the top trucking experts and engineers in the field of truck accident reconstruction as a resource to assist with and consult on these cases. Our results in these cases are among the best of any firm in the country and speak for themselves with hundreds of millions of dollars recovered on behalf of our clients in verdicts and settlements.

We use this information to build solid, evidence-based cases that greatly improve the likelihood of a successful outcome.
