18 Wheels Of Destruction

If you have been injured or had a loved one killed in an 18-wheeler accident on I-65 or another roadway, you need an attorney on your side who understands the nuances of these cases and has the experience needed to face the trucking companies and demand justice.

At Jemison & Mendelsohn, in Montgomery, Alabama, our attorney has decades of experience investigating trucking accidents, compiling the needed evidence and holding responsible drivers and their trucking companies accountable for the overwhelming pain they have caused.

How These Accidents Differ From Others

Trucking accidents are different from any other type of car accident. The size difference between an 18-wheeler and a typical car or vehicle is significant and almost always creates devastating crashes, serious injuries and loss of life.

Seeking justice after a truck wreck is also very different from handling the insurance issues and compensation after other types of car accidents. Injured drivers and their loved ones are up against trucking companies that are skilled in avoiding liability and minimizing their payouts on these accidents.

Experienced Representation Against The Trucking Companies

We comb through the forensic evidence to determine what went wrong and what should have been done to prevent the accident. In most cases, the cause of trucking accidents can be traced back to:

  • Driver fatigue or spending too much time on the road to meet a deadline
  • Maintenance issues with the rig or disrepair that should have been fixed
  • Improper or unbalanced loading of cargo or hauls
  • Tire and tread issues that should have been fixed
  • Training issues or inexperienced drivers that make preventable errors
  • Violations of state and federal guidelines

These investigations are complex, requiring veteran insight into what to look for and how to identify issues that the trucking company may have already tried to cover up. These investigations should take place as soon as possible following the accident to prevent evidence from disappearing.

We move quickly, seeking out the evidence we need to build a case. Our firm is successful in seeking maximum damages against trucking companies in these complicated cases.

Our firm is also known for its ability to hold state employees responsible for these types of accidents, if a government employee or organization was involved in the accident.
