Trucking Accidents

Large tractor-trailers — whether they are called semis, big rigs or 18-wheelers — are more than 40 times heavier than the average passenger car. A vehicle of this size in the hands of a sleepy or careless driver is a dangerous weapon.

At Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst, our lawyers have the experience and resources to take on truck accident cases. We understand the unique regulations and issues that are involved in the over-the-road trucking industry. We are here to hold careless drivers and their employers accountable for everything you have lost in an accident. From our office in Oklahoma City, we handle trucking accident cases throughout Oklahoma. We also help grieving family members bring wrongful death claims after fatal truck accidents.

Holding Trucking Companies Accountable

As we all know, there is a tremendous amount of truck traffic that passes through Oklahoma's roads, up and down I-35 and across I-40 to other roads and highways such as I-44, I-240 and the Turner, Kilpatrick, Creek, HE Bailey, Will Rogers, Cimarron and Muskogee Turnpikes. While large trucks are useful in their ability to haul large amounts of goods from one place to another, truck drivers have a duty to drive safely. Unfortunately, careless drivers and negligent trucking companies cause more than 100 fatalities and over 1,000 injuries every year in Oklahoma.

Accidents involving large commercial trucks and passenger vehicles often result in serious, catastrophic injuries and death. Serious injury cases — such as brain injuries, paralysis, comas, spinal cord injuries, amputations and other severe body trauma — require an enormous amount of time and skill.

Our lawyers take on complex and contested accident cases that other firms turn down. We have access to the best truck accident experts, accident reconstruction specialists and physicians in the country. We limit the number of cases we take on to ensure each case receives the time, attention and resources necessary to maximize our clients' recovery. Over the years, we have secured millions of dollars in compensation in truck accident cases.
