Alabama Lawyers for Victims of Serious Truck Accidents
Simple physics dictate the results when an 18-wheeler truck collides with a passenger car: victims will likely experience catastrophic injury or wrongful death. The human body is no match for the force created by the speed, size and weight of the vehicles involved.
At the Alabama law firm of Marsh, Rickard & Bryan, our legal team of attorneys and staff have significant experience in handling truck accidents and obtaining compensation for our clients. Here's an example of one trucking case that we tried to verdict. Contact our firm to discuss your legal options.
Protecting Clients' Rights and Interests
One of the most helpful steps an injured person can take after a truck crash is to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer before speaking with insurance company representatives. Families of loved ones lost in fatal trucking accidents, too, may benefit from obtaining legal counsel about wrongful death claims. When you hire a truck accident attorney, you want someone who understands the many factors that can contribute to a truck crash or big rig accident, such as:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver impairment by alcohol or stimulating drugs like "meth" (methamphetamine)
- Failure to obey traffic signs and lights
- Failure to maintain proper control of the truck
- Loads improperly stacked or secured
Our team of trial lawyers at Marsh, Rickard & Bryan has a proven record of success for clients. We are fast and aggressive in conducting the initial investigation, and we know what the right questions are to ask of witnesses. Further, we stay current on all the federal trucking regulations and have the technical resources required to build a solid case.
Using Technology to Enhance Cases
Visual evidence can have a powerful impact at trial. After gathering all the evidence following a truck crash or 18-wheeler accident, our experienced lawyers use cutting-edge visual presentation methods such as "Sanction" and "Case Map" in their truck accident cases. The ability to use illustrations, photos, graphs, and timelines to fully explain complicated concepts and confusing chains of events is a powerful tool in the courtroom.
