Truck drivers face numerous challenges when driving a big rig for years or decades. The loneliness of the road can lead to alcohol and drug abuse. Extreme hours can bring about a need for medication to stay awake. Even the need to sit for hours at a time can lead to pain, chronic problems and dependency on pain killers.
At other times, truckers can begin a trucking job with an already-established history of alcohol and drug abuse, and even a history of drunk driving/DUI. At The Jasmer Law Firm , we are prepared to provide experienced legal help from a dedicated lawyer when alcohol-related accidents cause injuries and wrongful death .
We have handled numerous truck accident cases and have been leaders in truck accident law since 1996.
Recent truck and commercial vehicle accident cases we have handled include:
- A $20 million settlement following a truck collision
- A $1.3 million partial settlement following a collision involving a U-Haul rental truck
- A nearly $1 million verdict in a van accident case
We aggressively litigate truck accident cases involving alcohol, illegal drug use and prescription drugs. In truck accident cases, both the driver and the trucking company can be at fault — the trucker for driving negligently and the company for failing to identify past driver problems through negligent screening.
