West Virginia Truck Accident Lawyers in for the Long Haul

Prematurely losing a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing is incredibly difficult.

Let Us Help Recover What Your West Virginia Truck Accident Cost You

The mountain roads of West Virginia (WV) add extra risks and challenges for motor vehicle travel. When big trucks like tractor trailers or coal trucks cause accidents — on mountain highways or straight stretches across level ground — your car or pickup is no match for the force and power behind a big rig. Although large truck crash fatalities have not increased in recent years, the damage to your vehicle can still be extensive, and even that may pale in comparison to the serious injuries sustained by driver and passengers alike.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a West Virginia truck accident, you need experienced litigation attorneys to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. At Brewer & Giggenbach, we identify all parties who contributed to the accident to maximize your potential recovery. Depending on your goals, we can help settle your claim so you can move on or take your fight to court, wielding our considerable years of litigation experience for you.

Determining the Cause of WV Truck Accidents

Traveling on West Virginia truck routes means sharing the road with independent day and long-haul truckers, coal and log trucks, and fleet trucks, to name a few. If you’re involved in an accident with a big rig, the driver of the rig involved may not be the only one who contributed to its cause. One or more of the following  can play a role in causing an accident:

  • Driver
  • Truck owner
  • Trucking company
  • Maintenance personnel or company
  • Truck parts manufacturer
  • Shipper/loader

At Brewer & Giggenbach, we investigate your accident in detail to identify all who are potentially involved and take your claim for compensation to all of them.

While identifying all of the potentially culpable parties, we also pinpoint what they did or didn’t do that makes them responsible. Accidents can happen, but too often big truck accidents can be traced to preventable errors or negligence. The cause of your truck accident could be traced to conduct like the following:

E

Driving Error

E

Speeding

E

Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medication

E

Negligent hiring by the truck owner or trucking company

E

Improper or falsified truck maintenance

E

Trucking safety violations of federal regulations

(Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) or state laws and regulations (such as training requirements, limits on hours of service, and inspections)
