We are skilled at reconstructing the events if it is necessary to establish how the truck driver was at fault.
We hold truckers and trucking companies accountable for:
- Changing lanes without looking or signaling
- Intentional lane changes into an occupied lane
- Aggressive moves at freeway interchanges
- Crossing several lanes of traffic to make the exit
- Driving with a missing or damaged side view mirror
- Distracted or inattentive driving
An unsafe lane change by the driver of an 18-wheeler often causes chain reaction crashes as the other drivers in the vicinity take evasive action. The motorist in the truck’s immediate path may be forced off the road. Lane changes also result in violent underride accidents — the passenger vehicle tangled and mangled under the trailer.
Any of these scenarios is likely to cause severe or permanent injuries, if not a fatal accident. Dempsey Kingsland Osteen, has the resources to build a case for maximum compensation, including medical consultants who review every one of our cases. Along with other professionals, we work up a demand package for the lasting disability, future medical care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering of the victim.
