Semi trucks and trailers pose a risk to others on the highway, given their immense size and the weight of the loads they carry. A small error or overcorrection can instantly cause a tragic accident. Because of this, there are strict rules that govern how drivers are to drive and behave on the roads.
At Healy Scanlon Veugeler Gannon, our attorneys are committed to fighting on behalf of victims and their families following trucking accidents, particularly those in which the truck driver was traveling at unsafe speeds.
The trucking companies move quickly to cover their tracks following a trucking accident to avoid being sued. Trying to recover compensation on your own can be futile, up against companies that are experienced at dodging blame. Our lawyers are experienced in finding the evidence needed to hold trucking companies accountable, recovering maximum damages on behalf of victims. We have a track record of success standing up to these companies.

Speeding and reckless driving often directly cause or contribute to truck accidents. At such high speeds, even a small overcorrection can be devastating. Our firm works with forensic experts and other professionals to reconstruct the accident, providing clear evidence of driver error and speeding.
With such clear federal and state laws in place regulating truck driver behavior, it is unacceptable that such accidents should occur. We make sure to hold these companies accountable.
We will fight to ensure that you and your family are provided the compensation you deserve to cover medical bills, property damage and closure. While we cannot reverse the impact of a trucking accident, we can help you move past this event. Call or use our online contact form today to schedule a free initial consultation.
