Trucking Accident Attorneys in Maryland, D.C. & Virginia
Securing Maximum Compensation for Victims of Negligent Truck Drivers & Trucking Companies
Accidents involving large commercial vehicles, such as semi-trucks, are particularly devastating. Pursuing a personal injury claim—or a wrongful death claim, if your loved one was killed in a trucking accident—can be incredibly complex due to the numerous potentially liable parties, various trucking industry regulations, and other factors. It is important that you seek a trucking accident attorney who is well-versed in these types of claims.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, trucking litigation experience is on your side. Our trucking accident attorneys have many years of civil litigation experience, including representation of victims of tractor-trailer and large truck accidents. Some of our attorneys also have prior experience in insurance and negligence defense. This experience means you have a lawyer on your side who understands both sides of accident litigation, as well as the various trucking regulations involved. Those same regulations are what separates the large truck accident from any other vehicular accident.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a large truck accident, contact the trucking accident lawyers at Ashcraft & Gerel for a free consultation. We serve clients throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.
What Makes Truck Accidents So Complex?
If you have been injured by a tractor trailer or large truck consider this:
- Trucking accidents may involve complex regulatory issues
- Trucking accidents may involve company policies that left you vulnerable
- Trucking accidents may involve various insurance policies
- Trucking accidents usually result in very serious injuries impacting lives of those injuries
These are just some of the factors that make trucking accident litigation much more complex than other types of motor vehicle accident claims, such as car accidents and motorcycle accidents.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we thoroughly investigate all of the relevant factors in our clients’ cases. This may include looking into the actions (or inactions) of the truck driver. For example, did the truck driver act negligently (e.g. driving drunk, falling asleep at the wheel, texting while driving, etc.)? Did he or she violate hours-of-service regulations? We also look into other various factors, such as whether a defective truck part, faulty truck maintenance, or negligent hiring practices played a role in the accident.
Because we are a large, well-established firm, we have access to trucking industry experts, accident reconstructionists, and other professionals who help us determine liability in complex truck accident claims. Our attorneys use this to build strong cases on behalf of their clients. Ashcraft & Gerel can meet you at home, in the hospital, or at one of our offices in Washington D.C., Silver Spring, Baltimore, Landover, Rockville, Fairfax, and Manassas.
