Tractor Trailer Accidents in West Virginia
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 truck accident lawyer.
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.
