Proven, Aggressive Truck Accident Lawyers In Maine

Proving Negligence Was A Factor In Your Crash

It is critical that you get an experienced lawyer involved in your case as soon as possible. Truck accident injuries are often severe and life-altering. Your insurance company will work to keep you in the dark about the full value of your case.

If a negligent truck driver or irresponsible trucking company was the cause of the crash, we will find the evidence to hold that party accountable and establish the full and fair value of your case.

What Is Truck Driver Negligence? What Is Trucking Company Negligence?

Negligence in a truck crash is attributable not only to truck drivers, but also to trucking companies. Examples include:

  • Fatigued truck drivers — Lack of sleep and violations of federal shift length limits
  • Overloaded trucks — Loose cargo, unequal distribution of weight, improperly marked oversize loads and more
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Falsifying driver logbooks — We can determine if logbooks were falsified deliberately
  • Drunk driving and drugged driving — Commercial vehicle drivers have strict limits
  • Poor truck maintenance — Worn tires, burned out lights, unsecured cargo and otherwise poorly maintained trucks and trailers can be major factors in crashes
  • Negligent hiring practices — Trucking companies are required to perform background checks and drug tests on all workers

Finding and documenting evidence is critically important to your case. Trucking companies are known for "misplacing" and covering up evidence.

Our team will prepare your case for trial from day one. We don't back down from tough challenges, and we fight to secure maximum compensation.
