Tractor Trailer Injuries
We Have More Than Six Decades Of Collective Experience
Truck accidents differ from other types of vehicle accidents in a number of ways. The biggest difference, of course, is in the shear mass of these commercial vehicles and the force or degree of impact they can inflict. Semi-trucks are the largest objects on the road. Any driver or passenger who gets in an accident with an 18-wheeler is at risk of suffering severe injuries or death. The Newport News truck accident attorneys at Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. have extensive experience in handling personal injury cases.

In a truck accident, more than one party usually shares in liability. We will work to uncover all potential sources of recovery. Each case comes with its own unique set of facts, circumstances, and issues.
Another crucial difference between truck accidents and car accidents is your opponent. If you have been injured in a truck accident, you will be making a claim against one or more businesses. Commercial truck companies are generally required to carry a minimum of $750,000 in liability insurance. Motor carriers of certain hazardous materials must have $5,000,000 in liability coverage.
The good news in trucking cases is that there is usually an ample amount of insurance coverage.
On the other hand, insurance companies will fight tenaciously in order to minimize their exposure. At Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C., you can be assured that our law firm will be just as tenacious in our representation of your interests. We will tirelessly prepare your case for the best possible outcome, from investigating the case through negotiation, and when necessary, at trial.
