Do You Need an Oklahoma City Truck Accident Lawyer?
Our attorneys can stand up to the trucking company, demand compensation for you
Truck traffic is a fact of life in Oklahoma City. It's the largest city in Oklahoma and located right on the I-35 corridor, carrying huge amounts of traffic into neighboring Texas and on to Mexico. Most drivers in our area don't think twice about sharing the road with big-rigs - but that changes in a hurry when they're involved in an accident.
Because of the sheer size of tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks, crashes involving those vehicles can cause devastating injuries. The Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers at Lawter & Associates, PLLC can help every step of the way.
Tractor-trailer accidents lead to difficult legal cases
Accidents involving 18-wheelers can lead to complex legal battles for Oklahoma City residents. There are often multiple insurance companies involved and determining liability can be a complicated process, especially if the driver is not a direct employee of the trucking company. These companies are often located out of state, which means tracking them down can be a challenge. Moreover, because truck accidents are high-stakes cases, they often end up going to trial.
Whether you were hurt in a jackknife crash, underride wreck, rollover, or another type of truck accident, you need a law firm with extensive experience and attorneys who aren't afraid to stand up to the trucking companies. With over four decades experience practicing law in Oklahoma City, we know the courts - and we know how to win high-stakes truck accident lawsuits. Our law firm will thoroughly investigate your claim, represent you in negotiations and, if necessary, take your case to trial.
Why semi-truck accident claims can be confusing
Accidents involving semi-trucks in Oklahoma City often occur on major highways like I-40, I-44 and I-35. They can also happen anywhere in the city, from South Shields Boulevard to NE 4th Street and anywhere in between. No matter where your accident occurs, you will likely have to deal with a wide range of complex legal issues. These include:
- A truck driver denies doing anything to cause your collision.
- A trucking company refuses to share information about:
- The truck driver’s driving history
- The truck driver’s Hours of Service (HOS) logs
- The truck’s maintenance history
- The trucking company’s hiring history
- The truck’s inspection records
- A trucking company’s insurance company pressures you to accept offer.
- A trucking company’s insurance company refuses to return your calls.
Depending on the circumstances of your crash, you could be dealing with the truck driver and several different companies. These include:
- The driver’s trucking company
- The company that owns the trailer
- The company that owns the cab
- The company that loaded the trailer
- The company that manufactured the items being transported
- Different insurance companies for each business
- Different attorneys for each at-fault party
Don’t try to deal with all of them on your own. We can help every step of the way.
