Tractor Trailer Accidents
West Virginia Personal Injury Attorney
Large tractor trailers are a common site on West Virginia roads. These
massive vehicles pose a serious danger to other motorists given the tonnage
of an average trailer. Accidents involving tractor trailers can result
in even more horrific injuries than the average passenger car, even death.
For those drivers injured through no fault of their own, they have a right
to pursue compensation with the help of a trusted West Virginia personal
Our firm is fully committed to protecting the rights of the injured, no
matter what the details of the case are. At the Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC,
we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our injured clients
in over 30 years of experience. You can trust we will put your interests
first in working towards recovering what you deserve.
A Track-Record of Holding the Liable Party Accountable
You need an attorney in your corner who understands the law because the
companies which own and operate the tractor trailer will do everything
in their power to escape liability. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act
obligates trucking companies to keep detailed records of the driver’s
activities and how the truck is maintained.
The West Virginia truck accident lawyers at our firm know to go after these
records in order to hold the company accountable. We are highly experienced
when it comes to investigating who is responsible for tractor trailer
accidents and we can determine whether the tractor driver behaved negligently—whether
this was by driving while intoxicated, not getting enough sleep, substance
abuse, etc.—or another party was to blame.
Other times, the company or individual responsible for loading the trailer
with freight does so improperly which contributes to an accident. We can
work with this party and any others including whoever insurers the truck
to obtain a positive outcome for your case.
