Virginia Truck Accident Attorney

Call For a Consultation: (571) 290-2390

Truck accidents are often much more dangerous than accidents involving cars alone, due to the larger size of commercial trucks. A traffic safety fact sheet published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2012 alone, there were 3,921 people killed in the U.S. and an additional 104,000 people injured in accidents involving large trucks.

An accident involving a large truck can happen to anyone, even individuals who practice the best defensive driving techniques. If you have been the victim of a truck accident, our Alexandria truck accident attorneys at The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC can help you pursue a claim to recover compensation for your injuries.

  • Illicit drug use
  • Speeding
  • Use of over-the-counter or prescription medication
  • Road rage or aggressive driving
  • Following another vehicle too closely (tailgating)
  • Distracted driving
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to use a turn signal or other illegal maneuver
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Vehicle part failure, such as a tire blowout
  • A cargo shift

Who's Liable for Your Injury?

Truck accidents can cause devastating injuries, and victims are often faced with an uphill battle to recover the damages they deserve. Truck accidents are notoriously complex compared to auto accidents. Many different parties are involved in a commercial truck accident, but assigning liability to any of them can be difficult. A skilled truck accident attorney can help you fight for your rights and can make building your case easier.

In a truck accident, there often is more than one party responsible for the victim’s injuries. These parties may include:

  • The truck driver
  • The owner of the truck or trailer
  • The company or individual who leased the truck or trailer from the owners
  • The manufacturer of the truck or its components
  • The shipping company or loading crew

Often, truck accidents will involve multiple insurance policies and attorneys who are representing the various parties involved. This can be overwhelming to deal with while you are recovering, but your lawyer can handle your claim and managing the other parties’ requests for information. It also is not uncommon for the different parties to try to blame each other in order to protect themselves. Evidence is necessary to prove your claim, and your attorney will gather the necessary records, photographs, or witness statements to support your story.
