Truck accident cases involve complex issues and trucking companies won’t go down without a fight. Our firm has the experience and resources needed to win the compensation you deserve.
Trucking accidents are to blame for a disproportionate number of serious and fatal injuries, and it is not hard to see why. When compared to a collision involving two ordinary vehicles, commercial trucking accidents involve greater forces, greater risks, and less margin for error. When truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers make mistakes the consequences can be devastating – and it is often innocent drivers and passengers who pay the greatest price.

“I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him.” – Trucking Accident Client
