Truck Driver Negligence

There is a myth that because truck drivers are professionals, they are more careful when they drive. That is not always so. After a long run, time deadlines for deliveries, fighting heavy traffic, the trucker may become a bit weary and anxious, leading to careless driving. The size of the truck also makes the driver’s job more difficult. Having to maneuver a large truck on a small, narrow street, or trying to negotiate a wide turn, can become quite frustrating. No matter how many mirrors the driver has, he may not be able to see you and your car. Accidents happen, and when a large truck collides with a small car, the injuries can be very serious.

At the law firm of Norman M. Block, P.C., we will help you get the money damages you deserve for your injuries. After obtaining the police report, we will contact the truck driver’s insurance company and monitor your medical care. Truckers often have very large insurance policies, so the companies may be more eager to settle rather than go to court. However, when that doesn’t happen, we will be in court with you and aggressively represent you in presenting your case.

Call us today and take advantage of our 25 years of experience years in representing people who have been injured in car and truck accidents. We will help you recover your lost wages and your medical expenses, as well as damages for pain and suffering. The initial consultation is always free.
