An overall grade of “D.” That’s the dismal rating that the American Society of Civil Engineers gives to America’s road system. Experts say that unresolved problems with our highways caused a 7% increase in traffic fatalities from 2014 to 2015 alone.

Injuries from an accident with a semi can have life-altering consequences for years to come.

Not every trucking accident is caused by bad roads and unsafe bridges, of course. More than half of all accidents involving a commercial vehicle site driver negligence as the cause of the accident. Sorting out the many possible causes for your wreck takes the kind of heavy-duty legal and investigative skills that comes from choosing a top-flight law firm like Rutter Mills.

Why Are Truck Accidents More Complex?

Semi-trucks are much larger than passenger vehicles, so they transfer greater force during impact. Drivers and passengers in vehicles struck by 18-wheelers are more likely to suffer a serious, even fatal injury.

Between the truck driver, the owner of the truck, the company leasing the truck, and even possibly another company loading or maintaining the mechanics of the truck, there are many potentially liable or responsible parties involved in a commercial vehicle crash. Employment and independent contractor relationships further complicate the liability questions.

Both state and federal laws impose strict requirements on commercial drivers. These include the number of hours a driver may be on the road without a rest; how they record their miles, maintenance, and inspections; and how long they must wait between consuming alcohol or certain supplements before operating a truck.

In addition to the records commercial vehicle operators are required to keep, many 18-wheelers today are outfitted with so-called “black boxes”. These event recorders can reveal crucial details of the trip before and during the crash, including the speed the truck was traveling and when it applied the brakes, but it helps to have an experienced attorney to help retrieve that data.

Federal laws require truck drivers and trucking companies to carry higher insurance coverage than non-commercial drivers, but the complex relationships between the parties can make it difficult to decipher whose insurance will be liable.

Truck Accident Attorneys

Trucking plays an important role in U.S. commerce, but a serious truck accident can leave an individual and their family to deal with the life-altering impact for years to come.

These types of vehicle accidents are far more likely to cause serious injury or even fatality than accidents involving only passenger vehicles. The 18-wheeler accident lawyers at Rutter Mills specialize in cases involving serious injuries, so we know how to tackle commercial truck accidents and recover maximum money compensation for our clients.

In Virginia, accident victims need to prove the fault of the other party in order to recover compensation for their injuries.

Mr Gillikin and Susan are absolutely wonderful. I called for help with Social Security Disability benefits. I can't say enough great things about them and Rutter Mills. Susan was always professional, kind, informative, and prompt. Not once was I made to feel unwelcomed. Mr Gillikin explained what would happen and eased my anxiety greatly. I highly recommend Rutter Mills. I am so grateful I chose Rutter Mills. Susan answered every question with prompt information and I felt well cared for. Again I sincerely thank you for holding my hand and helping me during this confusing process.

I had Rutter Mills as a disability lawyer and couldn't have made a better decision. They were very professional and kept me informed every step of the way.

Ray F.

My situation with my health and physical mobility was in a downward spiral. A friend of mine reminded me about Rutter Mills. I immediately got on the phone, and they made me an appointment for a free consultation. I explained everything to them, and the rest is history. I was told by everyone else it would take years to get disability, but with Rutter Mills on the job, I had results within a year. My attorney, along with his staff and the Rutter Mills family, made it happen. 100% . I would recommend them to anyone else in need of help for any situations that arise in your life. Thank you, Rutter Mills and family.

Ray M

After getting hurt at work I had problems with workers compensation right away. Comp was denying claims for medical treatment and not paying correct amount of wages. I was very worried and stressed till I called Rutter Mills. Attorney Jesse Pound with paralegal Jordan Johnson made all my problems go away. Thank you so much for all your help.
