Massachusetts Truck Accident Lawyers

If you have been the victim in an accident with an 18-wheel or tractor-trailer truck, you may have sustained a serious or catastrophic injury. Because of the size and weight of these very large trucks, many truck accident victims suffer from:

  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Head & brain injuries
  • Back & spinal cord injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Crushed limbs and organs
  • Burns
  • Permanent disability
  • Psychological distress

If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you are entitled to financial compensation if the accident was caused by another person's negligent or reckless actions. Truck drivers and/or truck companies will be legally liable for damages if they engaged in any of the following actions, which could be considered negligent:

  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Driving under the influence (DWI/DUI)
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to properly maintain the truck
  • Improper loading or unloading
  • Failure to follow traffic signs/signals
  • Failure to repair or fix broken equipment
