The economy is driven by trucks delivering goods all over the country. Over 2 million semi-trailer trucks on the roads drive billions of miles every year. With so many trucks transversing the highways, there are over 500,000 trucking accidents a year. Large trucks are more likely to be involved in accidents resulting in injuries and fatalities. As a truck accident lawyer, Kim Welch Law will fight for your rights so you can focus on healing after a truck accident.
Semi-trucks combine a tractor unit and a trailer to haul freight. They are large vehicles capable of damaging every car on the road when an accident happens. Trucking accidents include runaway trailers, jackknifes where the cab and trailer fold toward each other, override accidents where a smaller vehicle becomes jammed under the trailer, overloaded trailer, or drifting out of the lane. If you have been involved in a semi-truck accident, call Kim Welch Law. We will help you pursue a legal claim.
Even a minor accident involving a tractor-trailer is enough to cause significant damage to smaller vehicles on the road. Tractor Trailer accidents can cause injuries to everyone involved, from minor bumps and bruises to severe injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, and internal organ damage. When facing the long physical recovery from a tractor-trailer accident, you can rely on Kim Welch Law to fight for you.
As an industry, commercial trucking is highly regulated and profit-driven. Safety is not always the first concern, and when accidents happen, you need an attorney with experience in 18-wheeler accidents. At Kim Welch Law, we will fight against the trucking industry for the compensation you deserve. You focus on healing. We will gather evidence, prepare your claim, and handle negotiations to get your case the best outcome.
Semi-truck accidents are caused by mechanical issues, driver fatigue, driver error, driving too fast for road conditions, distracted driving, negligent hiring or training by the trucking company.
Assess any injuries and call 911 for help. Gather all information of anyone involved and all witnesses. Take pictures of the accident scene. Only speak to law enforcement but do not admit blame. Call Kim Welch Law and let us fight for you.
Liability is a complicated matter that Kim Welch Law will help determine. Liability may belong to or be shared by the truck driver, trucking company, truck maintenance company, the manufacturer, or other drivers.
After being involved in my first car accident, I didn’t know where to begin the legal process until I came across Kim and her team. They were truly amazing. Not only are they very professional, but also they care for their clients.
I could not be more thankful for Kim and her team! She is hands down the best representation to have for your car accident / injury case. Kim doesn’t back down and she doesn’t settle for anything less than you deserve.
Kim and her staff explained everything that needed to happen to file a claim, kept me informed, handled paying the bills (which were significant) and most importantly understood and advocated for us.
