Holding Negligent Truck Drivers And Their Employers Accountable

When commercial truck drivers get behind the wheel, their main focus is often delivering their freight as quickly as possible. If you share the road with drivers who prioritize speed over safety, your life and livelihood could be at risk. A collision with a semi truck can lead to severe, if not fatal, injuries that can take years and thousands of dollars to rehabilitate.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a catastrophic trucking accident, getting better should be your first concern, not filing a motor vehicle claim against the negligent driver, trucking company or insurer. At Cook, Bartholomew, Shevlin, Cook & Jones, LLP, our team of personal injury attorneys is equipped to handle all legal matters related to your issue. Let us take on your legal burden so that you can concentrate on recovering.
