HEAR ABOUT OUR HUMAN-LIKE APPROACH TO EACH CASE

Each year truck collisions cause more than 140 thousand significant injuries and over 5 thousand deaths to the motoring public. It is estimated that more people die in trucking wrecks than in train, plane, ship and bus accidents combined. Causes of these tragic collisions include excessive truck speed, driver distraction, unsafe driving actions, improper cargo securement, driver fatigue, maintenance defects and trucking company system failures for not safely training, monitoring or supervising its drivers.

Whiting Law Group is a law firm focused nearly exclusively on handling cases on behalf of victims of trucking accidents due to unsafe and dangerous truck drivers and trucking companies whose conduct needlessly endangers the motoring public and our clients. If you or a loved one have been harmed in a truck crash we firmly believe you need skilled trucking trial attorneys who concentrates their work in taking on large trucking companies and their drivers who operate semi-trucks and who have studied and know the complexities of truck accident litigation. Why?

Trucking accidents are not the same as car accidents. A commercial truck that often weighs up to 80 thousand pounds have operating limitations that put an extra focus on safety by the truck drivers and trucking companies operating these large machines on wheels on our roadways. The significant mass and size of a large truck which typically weighs 20 to 30 times more than a car, that weighs less than 3 thousand pounds has greater consequences when causing a crash to a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle which increases the likelihood of more severe damage and injuries than being in a crash with another car.

These large trucks are more difficult to drive on the roadways. They require a special license to drive, they have blind spots when changing lanes, longer stopping distances due to the weight of the truck and the loads they are hauling, make wider turns that impede other traffic lanes and corners of sidewalks where pedestrians stand, and have complicated mechanical systems that require daily inspection to avoid mechanical failure while operating on the roadways. As a result of these differences, truck drivers and trucking companies are required to be extensively trained on safety and must monitor and supervise its trucks and drivers on every aspect of safe operation of these big trucks on our roadways. They also must learn, be knowledgeable on and agree to follow substantive safety rules and regulations and industry standards put out by the Federal and State government.

Victims of a truck crash need an experienced and skilled team of lawyers who focus primarily on handling trucking accident cases and who have studied and learned all of the substantive safety rules and regulations that govern how truck drivers and trucking companies operate their large trucks and know how to apply them to prove the cause of a trucking crash. Victims of these collisions also need attorneys who have a proven track record of settlements and trial verdicts.

Any litigation involving a collision with a truck is, by its very nature, complex. The sheer weight, size and mass of these big trucks makes them dangerous when not safely operated. The top truck lawyers stay abreast of the latest news, trends, innovations and technology in trucking accident litigation. They look to improve their skills through seminars and conferences geared towards truck accident law and litigation. A good truck accident attorney must be focused on more than just holding negligent drivers and companies accountable for their wrongdoing. They must be actively working to reduce the risks and hazards associated with the cause of their clients’ crashes. This can be done through memberships and leadership roles in professional associations for truck accident attorneys. Successful litigation of a truck crash often hinges on paying attention to all the complexities of any wreck. Here at Whiting Law Group we have a comprehensive approach to winning these cases.
