18 Wheeler Accident Lawyers

An automobile or motorcycle accident with an 18 wheeler truck can turn your life upside down. Due to the sheer size and weight of the truck and its cargo, a collision with an 18 wheeler is extremely dangerous for drivers and passengers. We know that victims of 18 wheeler accidents have to deal with medical problems and emotional trauma for a long time after the accident has occurred. We have the resources and litigation experience needed to get our clients the compensation they are entitled to receive


Most automobiles are only designed to handle an impact with other standard passenger vehicles. As a result, there is a greater probability that a collision with an 18 wheeler will lead to permanent injuries and fatalities. Some of the injuries people endure after an accident include:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Burns on the legs, arms, torso and other parts of the body
  • Broken limbs

When a truck is involved, though, many other questions need to be answered before there’s any chance of victims being compensated for their injuries, including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Who owns the truck and who was responsible for its operation at the time of the accident? These can be tricky issues in a commercial trucking situation.
  • Is the truck subject to the federal truck safety regulations imposed on trucks that are used in interstate commerce?
  • Were both driver and truck in compliance with all safety regulations imposed by all levels of government (local, state and federal)?
  • What cargo was the truck carrying? If the cargo included hazardous material, additional regulations will apply and victims may suffer additional injuries.

How quickly and efficiently these questions get answered is tremendously important to victims too injured to work, walk, or simply live as they did before the accident. At Wettermark Keith, we have pursued these answers in many cases. We know where the answers are likely to be and, maybe even more importantly, how the people who caused your injuries are likely to dodge the questions.
