  • When a potential client has been injured in an accident where the other vehicle is a tractor-trailer, their claim addresses several unique components not included in a typical two-car accident.
  • The Department of Transportation may conduct the initial investigation and examine the driver’s logbooks to ensure their accuracy. They also do a brake inspection.
  • A tractor-trailer driver may receive traffic tickets a regular car driver would never see. The truck’s load might be improperly balanced – or may have shifted. The driver’s CDL may be outdated, or he may have been driving for too many hours in a row.
  • Our team of lawyers is well versed in tractor-trailer accidents, from initial investigation through filing of all documentation created based upon the investigations of others.

Client Reviews

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
