The Tulsa Semi Truck Accident Attorney You Want After Your Crash
Our law firm can help you every step of the way
Large semi trucks regularly travel through Tulsa. Whether they’re driving on I-44, I-244 or a smaller road in Tulsa, all it takes is one small mistake by these massive truck drivers to cause a major motor vehicle accident.
When fully loaded, semi trucks (also known as 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers) can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Add to the fact that these drivers often travel at high speeds to meet tight deadlines and you have a recipe for disaster.
That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an experienced Tulsa truck accident attorney as soon as possible after your semi-truck accident. That’s why we want to meet with you at Lawter & Associates, PLLC right away. We know what do because we’ve been doing this work for more than four decades. We can explain all the legal options available to you. Then work with you to effectively resolve your case.
What makes semi truck accidents so complicated?
Unlike accidents involving smaller vehicles, crashes involving large commercial semi trucks often raise a wide range of complex issues. First and foremost, there’s the large number of people you’ll likely need to deal with after your accident. These include:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company driver works for
- The company that loaded the truck
- The company that manufactured items being transported in truck
- Each company’s insurance company
- Each company’s attorney
As far as legal issues, some of the ones that often come up after a semi-truck accident include:
- The truck driver denies doing anything wrong.
- The trucking company refuses to share records after the accident, including:
- Hours of Service (HOS) records
- Maintenance records
- Inspection reports
- The truck driver’s driving history
- The other driver’s driving history at the company
- The trucking company does not return your phone calls.
- The trucking company or someone else harasses you to accept a lowball settlement offer.

How our law firm can help you after your accident
Why do all these companies often make things so difficult after your accident? It’s very simple – money. The financial impact of a semi truck accident can be staggering – many thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s money for medical bills, lost income, lost future income, future medical care and other accident-related expenses.
These companies will often do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim. Some law firms avoid such tough cases. We thrive on them. That’s because we believe strongly in doing the right thing for injury victims and their families. For us, it’s about more than just money. It’s about holding people – and companies – accountable for their actions.
We know how to investigate such complex cases. We know how to obtain HOS records and other critical documents. We’re aware of the tight deadlines often associated with such work. And we’re not afraid to stand up for your rights, whether it’s negotiating with them or fighting for you in court.
