Injured in a Truck Accident?

Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer

Newport News Truck Accident Lawyers - Call Us Today (888) 599-4090

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.

Contact us to discuss your injuries. We offer a free initial consultation, and will only charge attorney's fees if we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.

Helping People across Virginia after Semi-Truck Accidents

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.

The following is just a partial list of the areas that may need investigation:

  • Was the truck driver properly trained?
  • Did the driver take proper rest?
  • Did the driver have a history of alcohol or drug abuse?
  • Was the truck properly maintained?
  • Was the truck properly loaded?
  • Was the driver operating at proper speeds?

The Difference Between Car & Truck Accidents

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.
