Investigating the Cause of Serious Truck Accidents

At Clayton-Johnston, we have handled hundreds of truck accident claims, including:

  • Rollover semi truck accidents
  • 18-wheeler jackknife accidents
  • Rear-end and head-on collisions

The truck accident lawyers at our firm devote substantial resources to investigating accident scenes to determine all possible liability factors. We often work with accident scene reconstructionists to quickly preserve evidence and piece together the series of events moments before the truck accident occurred. Our legal team also meets with eyewitnesses and consults police reports to help us analyze the cause of the accident from all possible angles.

Part of our time includes subpoenaing any evidence from the trucking company including fuel tickets, dispatch sheets, maintenance records, and log books. We review as many facts as possible to determine liability factors, including:

  • Driver negligence — Our legal team has proven fault in claims against truck drivers for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving recklessly, or speeding in an effort to make their weekly quotas.
  • At-fault truck companies — The personal injury attorneys at our firm have held local and national truck companies accountable for failing to properly train new drivers, encouraging drivers to met unrealistic goals with little sleep, or hiring unqualified drivers.

We are skilled investigators prepared to prove fault with substantial evidence. Our legal team also consults medical specialists to help us demonstrate the extent of your truck accident injuries. We are committed to pursuing maximum compensation for your current and future medical needs, lost wages, and your pain and suffering.
