Providing Tractor-Trailer Collision Services Throughout Maryland
Truckers and trucking companies are required to comply with federal and state trucking regulations. This includes rules regarding load requirements, speed and lane restrictions, and driving-time requirements (to mitigate driver fatigue). When they fail to abide by these rules, they put innocent motorists in harm’s way and risk causing severe and potentially fatal injuries. If you or a family member sustained an injury in a collision with a tractor-trailer (or semi-truck) on a Maryland roadway, Smith Law Firm, LLC has the skills and resources to effectively handle your claim. We can help you pursue compensation for your physical injuries, as well as any pain and suffering, emotional trauma, lost wages, earning potential, and property damages.
Smith Law Firm, LLC’s truck accident lawyer in Columbia, MD, has been protecting the rights of injured clients for more than 40 years. He has extensive experience addressing the many issues involved in truck accident claims. He has access to a vast network of experts who can investigate the scene of your trucking accident. Whether you’ve been injured on Baltimore Beltway, Washington Beltway, 1-695, I-495, I-95, I-70, or I-83, we can coordinate efforts to uncover the true causes of your collision.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Defective equipment
- Improper lane changes
- Cutting off another driver
- Rear-ending another driver
- Improper background checks
Because of their sheer size, trucks can cause significant vehicular impacts and frequently result in traumatic personal injuries and even wrongful death. For example, a brain, spinal cord, or general back injury could require significant complications, lengthy medical treatment plans, physical therapy, and a whole range of other expenses. We’ve worked on so many of these cases that we have a good understanding of the process you must go through to check for and receive a diagnosis for underlying and long-term injuries. We can help you more accurately determine the compensation you need to cover your economic and non-economic damages.
Our long list of professional awards and achievements includes being named a Maryland Super Lawyer and a Million Dollar Advocate (awarded to fewer than 1% of U.S. attorneys who have obtained multi-million dollar verdicts, awards, and settlements).
