The Intricacies of Truck Accident Cases

Regulatory and insurance issues can be incredibly challenging to surmount on your own, so it is in your best interest to retain a Washington, D.C. truck accident attorney who is well-versed in these topics.

At Ashcraft & Gerel, we have handled numerous truck accident claims. Our firm has recovered over $1 billion on our clients’ behalf.

We have represented clients injured in trucking accidents caused by:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Fatigued drivers
  • Trucks carrying loads over the legal weight limit
  • Unsafely loaded cargo
  • Defective vehicle parts or improperly maintained trucks
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Inexperienced or untrained drivers

Depending on the cause of the accident, we may pursue legal action against one or more parties involved, such as the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck’s primary mechanic, or a government entity.
