About 18 Wheeler Accidents

I've been hurt in an 18-wheeler accident, what do I do?

Alford & Clark knows how to litigate trucking cases. Our 18-wheeler accident attorneys are well versed in the federal and state laws that govern the trucking industry, and have experience going toe to toe with some of the largest trucking companies in the country. Don’t trust your case to a regular car wreck attorney who will treat your case like a run-of-the-mill car accident. Hire a law firm that knows the difference and will make the difference in your case.

Federal law requires 18-wheelers to carry at least $750,000 in insurance. The insurance companies behind these policies have a lot to lose. As a result, the insurance adjusters who handle 18-wheeler accidents are some of the most experienced adjusters in the company, and they will use every trick in the book to minimize your claim or to deny it outright. When you take on an experienced adjuster, you need to make them take you seriously. You need Alford & Clark in your corner.

​Alford & Clark is a full-service firm that prides itself on client satisfaction. When you hire us, we take care of all the headaches of dealing with your 18-wheeler accident – both big and small. If you were injured, we will help you get your car fixed, help you get a rental car, help you get the medical care you need, and help you move on with your life. If you have lost a loved one as the result of a trucking accident, we will help you hold the trucking company and its driver accountable.

  • Immediately contact Alford & Clark for a free consultation – contact Alford & Clark before you talk to the insurance company or sign anything that could waive your rights

Legal Assistance for Motorcycle Accidents

Most trucking companies are no strangers to litigation. Their vehicles can easily weigh 20 times more than an ordinary passenger vehicle like your car or light truck. When their massive commercial vehicles cause a collision, that impact usually results in catastrophic injuries or death for the driver of the small passenger vehicle. You or your loved one is likely not the first person that has been hurt by the negligence and recklessness of these companies. The trucking company’s experience fighting cases like yours is one reason why you need to contact Alford & Clark immediately after the accident.

Many trucking companies will immediately send out a “crash team” of lawyers, accident reconstructionists, and private investigators to the accident scene. Their job is to secure the scene and start gathering evidence to show that their company and driver were not at fault. They may even try to influence the police officers investigating the accident, encouraging them to scrub the accident report or even change the officers’ conclusions.

When you contact Alford & Clark after a serious trucking accident, your team of attorneys and experts will investigate the scene. Your team will find the evidence that the trucking company is trying to minimize. Your team will make sure that the company does not get a chance to destroy or “lose” critical evidence. Regular car wreck lawyers will not do this, because they do not know how to, and your case will suffer for it. This is why you should trust the 18-wheeler accident lawyers at Alford & Clark to help you fight against the big companies and insurance carriers.
