Tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers are one of the leading causes of serious injuries among motor vehicle accidents. As one of the largest and heaviest vehicles on our roads and highways, a collision with a tractor-trailer often leads to devastating injuries and fatalities.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a tractor-trailer accident, you are not alone. Matzus Law can guide you through the complex claims process and protect your rights to provide full compensation for your injuries. We have extensive experience holding truck drivers, truck mechanics, trucking companies, loading companies and other third parties responsible for their negligence.
Retaining a lawyer as soon as possible after a tractor-trailer accident is very important because there is certain evidence, such as data from the “black box” that can be destroyed or automatically deleted from the electronic data recorder’s memory. Tractor trailer companies and their insurance carriers have specialized teams of lawyers and investigators that literally are deployed to the scene as soon as possible, sometimes the very same day to begin protecting their rights. You need an experienced tractor-trailer accident lawyer from Matzus Law on your side to protect your rights.
In many cases, tractor-trailer accidents are considered preventable and typically caused by the negligence of one or more parties in the trucking industry.

Tractor-trailer accidents are complex because they often require extensive resources to investigate a claim. An attorney must be able to determine whether state and federal regulations were violated by analyzing maintenance records, driver logs, a truck’s “black box” (electronic data recorder), and other pertinent information. There is a wealth of data and evidence that must be evaluated with the help of accident reconstruction experts.
