Get the Compensation You Need

Accidents involving semis and tractor-trailers often cause serious or fatal injuries to people in passenger vehicles. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report shows that in 2009, approximately 3,000 fatal vehicle accidents involved commercial trucks. There were also 51,000 truck accidents that year causing injuries to 74,000 people.

If you or a family member was injured in a trucking accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can fight the trucking company's insurance carrier for the compensation you need. At the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello, we have years of experience with truck accidents. We work hard to recover damages for the injury victims and their families.

What Caused Your Truck Accident?

Semis, 18-wheelers, construction trucks and tanker trucks can be extremely dangerous if they are not handled and maintained properly. Some common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Inadequate vehicle safety and maintenance
  • Defective tires or brakes
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Driver fatigue
  • Logbook violations

The size and weight difference between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles usually results in catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, burns, traumatic brain injuries, amputations or broken bones. The cost of medical treatment for these injuries is significant. You will need compensation to pay medical bills and any long-term care expenses.

Our attorneys seek compensation from the trucking company for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and additional related expenses. In wrongful death cases, we will also argue for funeral expenses.
