Protecting The Rights Of The Injured

Licensed drivers are expected to follow the rules of the road, the basic guidelines for safety and etiquette on Alabama’s highways. Licensed commercial drivers who operate delivery trucks and 18-wheelers have further regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). When any of these rules are violated, often the result is catastrophic injury or wrongful death to those involved.

At Marsh, Rickard & Bryan, P.C., we are committed to swiftly reaching the site of each tractor-trailer accident or automobile crash, investigating the site and gathering evidence from the very beginning in order to present the strongest possible case for our clients. We capably handle personal injury and wrongful death cases resulting from:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Injuries sustained in car accidents can be severe, leading to lifelong disabilities and even wrongful death. We will investigate your car crash and make sure the jury understands your story.
  • Commercial Trucking Accidents: Because of their size, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers are subject to different laws and more stringent regulations than other vehicles on the road. When accidents occur, they are most often due to factors such as:
Negligent hiring practices
Driver fatigue
Driving under the influence
Improper loading and unloading
Ignoring federal regulations
Improper fleet maintenance
Improper truck lighting

Our legal team engages in detailed investigation and representation of cases to build compelling cases for our clients. Further, our attorneys use technology to powerfully tell your story to the judge and jury in court. In every case, our goal is to protect your rights and interests while pursuing the maximum compensation you are due.
