Commercial Truck Injury Accidents

You will benefit from our attorneys' decades of legal experience in handling trucking accidents from both sides, representing professional drivers and accident victims. 

Being injured in an accident involving a truck can be a devastating experience — especially in accidents involving large commercial vehicles.
From the occurrence of a truck accident to the close of trial, if one is necessary, we have experience in handling all facets of the truck accident claim. 
Jon Schneider has handled truck accident cases from five minutes after the accident through trial. In fact, he is on call for assembling an accident team for a large trucking company whose trucks cover the entire state of Arizona. Jon regularly deals with the accident reconstructionists, trucking experts and investigators necessary for compiling the information while still available.
We also have experience handling wrongful death claims and catastrophic injuries occurring after commercial truck accidents, including brain injury and quadriplegia. 

Your Comprehensive Accident Team

After a truck accident, assembling a team of trucking industry and investigative experts is essential for a successful outcome in your case. In our representation of trucking accident victims, we:
  • Hire an expert accident reconstructionist. Accident reconstructionists can determine the cause of your trucking accident by analyzing the black box data, taking measurements and photographs of the scene, and reviewing witness statements.
  • Hire a trucking expert, as commercial trucks and have regulations different than passenger cars.
  • Hire a private investigator (PI). PIs are often hired to interview eye witnesses, locate missing drivers, and compile necessary evidence for your case. 

Essential Steps Following Your Accident

Here are some important considerations if you have been involved in a trucking accident:
  • Obtain all contact and insurance information for the other driver(s).
  • Take as many photographs as possible: the vehicles involved, the roadway conditions, and any injuries. Documenting as much as you can may help strengthen your claim.
  • Preserve your black box data. Most modern vehicles are required to have a "black box" that can be analyzed by specialists using Crash Data Retrieval technology to determine the speed of the vehicles, the actions of the vehicles/drivers in the seconds before and after the collision, as well and the cause(s) of your accident. If you are unsure if your black box data is being stored or maintained, you will need to send a “preservation of evidence” letter to the insurance company, adjusting company, or tow/repair facility where your vehicle is located.
  • If you were injured in the trucking accident, journaling how your life has changed as a result.

Key Issues After an Accident

Here are some important considerations if you have been involved in a trucking accident:
  • Compiling and reviewing medical records. If you have been injured, and have received or are undergoing medical treatment for injuries sustained in a trucking accident, there is a need to obtain complete medical records and communicate with experts and providers to best understand your conditions.
  • Making settlement demands and conducting settlement discussions. We also handle negotiations on outstanding bills and liens.
