At Sherman Law, PLLC, we employ our extensive defense experience to benefit our injured clients in trucking accident litigation. Our experience defending insurance companies and trucking companies gives us the ability to take a comprehensive approach to preparing personal injury and wrongful death claims on our clients' behalf.
Applying Our Experience in Truck Accident Cases
Having worked for one of the largest firms in New Hampshire, attorney John P. Sherman knows truck accident litigation. Whether the case involves an 18-wheeler, a semitruck, a tractor-trailer truck or other commercial vehicle, he is abreast of the many areas of negligence and violation of trucking safety regulations that frequently results in these catastrophic accidents. Our firm pursues liability for trucking accidents caused by:
- Negligent hiring of truck drivers
- Driver fatigue
- Speeding or reckless driving (to meet delivery schedules)
- Defective parts or negligent truck maintenance
- Other negligence by truck drivers or trucking companies
We employ the resources to thoroughly investigate the accident, inspect the truck, review driver and maintenance logs, review hiring history, and recover other vital information.
Dealing With the Aftermath of a Truck Accident
The people who survive truck accidents are often dealing with very serious, often debilitating injuries such as brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Compensation is not only necessary for closure, it is necessary to adjust to the added expenses of medical care, rehabilitative care, accommodations to the injured person's home and life-care needs. We help clients recover the full compensation they need following a serious 18-wheeler accident injury. In addition, when a client is coping with the loss of a loved one following a fatal trucking accident, we guide him or her through a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for lost income, funeral expenses and other damages.
