Omaha and Norfolk Truck Accidents Lawyers
Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys in Omaha and Norfolk
Accidents involving 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, semi trucks, big rigs, and other large commercial trucks can have devastating results. At the law office of Copple, Rockey, McKeever & Schlecht P.C., L.L.O., our lawyers assist truck accident victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits arising from serious and fatal truck accidents throughout Nebraska.
Our Norfolk and Omaha truck accident attorneys understand the physical, emotional, and financial anguish our clients endure in the aftermath of a serious 18-wheeler accident or other truck accident. We help clients obtain compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future income, and other suffering they have and will continue to endure after the semi truck wreck.
Results Driven by Thorough Preparation and Investigation
In order to obtain maximum compensation for our clients, our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers use a comprehensive approach to preparing a truck accident case. Utilizing accident reconstruction experts and other specialists, we thoroughly investigate all aspects of the truck accident, including factors leading up to the accident that may have contributed to the crash or to the extent of the crash injuries. We identify negligence, such as:
- Truck driver negligence: such as speeding, driver log book violations (driving too many hours — resulting in driver fatigue), drinking and driving, truck maintenance violations or negligent maintenance, distracted driving, and other driver negligence
- Trucking company negligence: such as reckless or negligent hiring procedures (hiring drivers with a poor driving history, alcohol or drug problem, or criminal record), maintaining driving schedules that promote speeding and excessive driving without rest, negligent training practices, negligent truck maintenance procedures, and other trucking company negligence
- Other negligence: such as shoddy repairs, manufacturing defects or design defects that contributed to defective or dangerous truck parts, such as tire defects, brake defects, or other defects
Our ability to analyze all angles of a truck collision equips us to identify third parties that can be held financially responsible for our client's injuries or loss following a collision with an 18-wheeler or large commercial truck.
Overcoming Financial Hardships After a Truck Accident
Given the size and speed at which commercial trucks travel, truck accidents undoubtedly change the lives of victims and their families. It can be difficult to consider pursuing compensation when you are focused on recovering from a catastrophic injury or the tragic loss of a family member. However, compensation recovered in a personal injury or wrongful death can provide your family with the financial security that is necessary when overcoming a life-changing injury or coping with the loss of your family member.
Our attorneys recognize that maximizing your compensation is of critical importance in cases where the accident victim has suffered a life-changing injury, such as a brain or spinal cord injury, or where a family has lost a loved one — particularly when a primary wage-earner for the household dies in a fatal accident. Our ability to recover full compensation after tractor-trailer wrecks, semi crashes, and other truck accidents enables us to provide clients with peace of mind and financial stability so that they can move forward after the accident.
