We’re Known for Our Experience with Truck Accident Claims

We are known for handling complex truck accident cases. Paul A. Casi, II is frequently asked to share his knowledge with other lawyers at legal conferences. He has been invited to speak on topics such as handling oversize load cases, accident reconstruction, and automobile black boxes.

When a semi-truck carrying coal, farm equipment, or other cargo causes an accident, we can take action. We can handle cases involving 18-wheelers, as well as over-sized loads and specialty carriers. The importance of accident reconstruction and other expert assistance is often critical in these cases.

Identifying the Cause of Your Truck Collision

Some of the problems that cause trucking accidents include:

  • Lack of training and inexperienced drivers
  • Overloaded and over-sized trucks
  • Poor maintenance of trucks, including brakes and tires
  • Driver fatigue and hours-of-service violations
  • Speeding over the limit or driving too fast for conditions
  • Drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Safety system problems, such as issues with reflectors, lights and other warning devices
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to check blind spots

Many of these causes can be attributed to a company’s attempt to cut costs. Trucking companies don’t want to invest in training or pay higher wages for more experienced drivers. They don’t want to pay for maintenance. The longer drivers stay on the road, the more money they make, so they drive when they’re tired.

Unfortunately, serious accidents are often the result.

Most trucking accidents that occur in Kentucky and across the United States are preventable. The behavior and circumstances that lead to these collisions can be avoided if people and companies exercise proper caution and care. Unfortunately, mistakes are made and some companies choose to put profits above safety.

Our Louisville truck accident attorneys take on all types of collisions involving commercial trucks; these cases often involve a wide range of causes and contributing factors. We know how to identify and expose negligent and wrongful acts to our clients’ benefit, helping them seek the full and fair compensation they need.

Why Truck Accident Cases Are More Complex

When you are in an automobile accident with a truck involved, you are dealing with a professional driver who is trained, whose industry is regulated, and whose truck is required to be maintained. As professionals, and due to the often severe nature of truck accidents, they have specific requirements that they have to meet.

The Trucking Industry Defense Association will have a team of people working on their side almost immediately after an accident. They will be gathering physical evidence and will be constructing their case right away.

Since truck accidents are typically more severe than other moving vehicle accidents, have more complex regulations, and often have a team of professionals working on the trucking company’s side of the case almost immediately, it is important that you get someone with specific trucking industry expertise on YOUR side.

Our truck accident lawyers in Kentucky have decades of legal experience. We believe in using this experience to protect the rights of our clients, particularly in complex trucking accident cases. You may be up against considerable odds, but we are here to level the playing field so your rights are properly represented.

Make Sure You Get the Compensation You Deserve

Truck accidents often result in serious personal injuries. You may need lifelong care. This care is expensive. You should not have to deal with this financial burden in addition to the pain you have suffered. Our goal is to obtain compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages, and lost future earnings.

Getting results in these cases means going up against the big insurance companies that represent truckers and truck companies. These are major opponents. Our firm has the experience to take them on in your case. Our truck accident attorneys in Louisville KY have over 48 years of combined experience to put to work for you.
