Truck Accidents

Any vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injury or death. But the risk becomes even greater when a large truck is involved. If you have been injured, or a loved one has lost their life, due to a truck accident, contact the Plymouth personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III. With more than 146 years of collective experience representing clients throughout Massachusetts, we will tirelessly pursue the parties responsible for your injuries, and strive to secure the maximum compensation you deserve.

Building Your Truck Accident Case

A truck accident often raises a number of complicated legal issues, including those related to the liability of a truck driver's employer for his or her negligence in operating the vehicle. If the driver’s carelessness caused your injuries, you may be entitled to damages including amounts for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Physical therapy
  • Permanent disability
  • Property damage
  • Counseling
  • Pain & suffering
  • Emotional distress

However, in order to prove that you are owed these damages, you will need to provide evidence of the losses that you have sustained. A knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer will know what kind of evidence you will need to compile, and how to make the best use of that evidence, in order to strengthen your case and obtain full recovery on your behalf.

Thoroughly Investigating the Cause of the Accident

A key element of a successful claim following an accident is a comprehensive investigation. It is therefore critical that you enlist legal counsel with experience investigating accidents, and specifically, truck accidents.

An established truck accident lawyer will understand the specific safety standards trucking companies and their drivers are required to maintain concerning both the maintenance and operation of their vehicles. Unfortunately, it is all too common for tight shipping deadlines and the prospect of lost money to outweigh adherence to these guidelines, putting other people on the road at significant risk. Identifying these failures to follow procedure can make the difference between recovering full damages and being stuck with staggering debt following a serious injury.

There are a number of other factors that may cause a truck accident, such as:

  • Driver fatigue due to skipped rest breaks and sleep time
  • The failure to properly load a trailer
  • Cell phone use
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Defective products, such as tires, brakes and other equipment
  • Lapses in routine maintenance

A skilled truck accident lawyer can investigate the cause of your accident, and amass all necessary proof so that you can hold the responsible parties accountable for your harm.

Many Actions We Take Can Include the Following:

  • Ensure you are receiving proper medical treatment for your injuries
  • Seek compensation for your lost wages
  • Help you arrange for a rental car
  • Help with your property damage claim
  • Communicate directly with the insurance companies

  • Obtain evidence including witness statements, photographs, and expert opinions
  • Obtain and evaluate police and operator reports
  • Review all available sources of insurance
