Commercial truck accidents frequently cause very serious injuries and deaths. Injuries that result from trucking accidents involve a special set of laws. Kerrigan Estess Rankin McLeod & Thompson LLP has investigated hundreds of serious accidents caused by tractor-trailers, semi-trucks and 18-wheelers. Experience is important in the cases because of special requirements that these commercial trucks maintain logs and records surrounding their operation.

What we’ve found in representing people involved in trucking accidents is that the insurance companies that insure the commercial trucking companies go to work immediately after those accidents gathering information and evidence that helps the trucking company.
