Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates' credo is, “service, service, service.” We hand select cases in order to ensure we have the resources needed to take on trucking companies and their major insurers. Our priority is making sure you and your family are protected and cared for as you pick up the pieces following a serious accident.

Recovering from a Truck Accident

When a big truck or large semi tractor-trailer crashes with a passenger-sized automobile, the results are most often catastrophic. If the truck driver’s negligence caused the accident, it must be their insurance company that is responsible for the injuries and damages they caused.

Commercial truck collisions are often caused by fatigued drivers who lose focus after hours behind the wheel. Even a minor impact from a semi truck accident will result in a huge impact on a passenger vehicle. Huge impact equals serious and often permanent injuries. Truckers are required to exercise a higher degree of care on public roads ensure the safety of other smaller and less protected vehicles.

Commercial vehicles clearly require more room to stop than do passenger vehicles. Commercial trucks have larger blind spots than passenger vehicles. We have all seen the signs, “if you can’t see my mirrors, I can’t see you.” The failure of a trucker to exercise extreme caution while driving can cause irreparable injuries and even death. If you have been injured due to the negligence of a trucker it is imperative that your case is properly investigated.

Don’t Rush to Settlements

Most large hauling companies have full-time investigators on staff whose main function is to work to establish the least amount of liability in any truck accident. While the injured person recovers from the damages, the truck’s insurance company actively works to reduce the amount of compensation they will be forced to pay, hoping to obtain a quick settlement.

Let the auto and truck accident lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates balance the scales to make sure you get an appropriate personal injury reimbursement. There will be no rush to settlement. While you recover, your lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates will work tirelessly to protect you.
