Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Our Law Firm Takes Your Crash Seriously

Large commercial trucks pose a unique danger on U.S. roadways. Their massive size and weight require the skill of a well-trained and attentive driver in order to prevent serious truck accidents. Truck drivers must always be keenly aware of the limitations of their vehicle, as well as the vulnerability of the smaller passenger vehicles that surround them on the road. This means they must be well-trained and licensed.

truck and tractor-trailerWhen a tractor-trailer is traveling at high speeds on a major highway, one small driving error can have catastrophic consequences, resulting in severe personal injury and even wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash caused by a tractor-trailer, it's critical that you have an experienced attorney familiar with such complicated accidents on your side. That way, you can demand the compensation you deserve.

Rockville tractor-trailer accident Attorney Stuart L. Plotnick has decades of experience handling such complicated accidents in Maryland, Virginia and throughout the Washington, D.C. area. That's why he has such a strong track record of success. There's no substitute for experience, no substitute for doing the work that needs to be done to make things right.

What Makes 18-Wheeler Accidents Unique?

When fully loaded, an 18-wheeler can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Tractor-trailer accidents are different for other reasons as well, including the fact that there are often so many different companies involved in such accidents. Such companies include:

  • Trucking company and the driver
  • The company whose products are being carried by the trucker
  • The company that loaded the truck
  • Truck manufacturer
  • Truck parts manufacturers

For every company and every insurance provider, there could be one or several attorneys handling the case. Add them all together and you have dozens of people who could stand between you and the compensation you rightfully deserve.

How We Can Help You

Some attorneys avoid dealing with such complicated cases, or they simply agree to the first settlement offer, regardless of whether such an offer actually covers the total cost of your truck accident.

We take a different approach at the Law Offices of Stuart L. Plotnick, LLC. We take into consideration all the expenses (both short- and long-term) associated with your accident. Then do everything we can to secure that money for you and your family. We know how to do this work since Attorney Plotnick spent years working for insurance companies. He knows how the system works and how to get results. One of the first rules is that the accident must be investigated thoroughly because of all the parties and moving parts that might have been causes.
