Semi Truck Accidents

Carelessness & Your Claim

Some individuals may assure that if they are partially blamed for an accident nothing can be done against the tractor trailer.  It is important to understand that eve if you or your loved one was cited by the officer as causing in part the accident or partially responsible, you and/or your family may still be entitled to compensation from the operator of the big rig.  If the operator was also careless and/or partly responsible for the accident, we can help. The amount of the truck driver's liability for the accident will be determined by their percentage of fault for the accident.


During negotiations, our attorneys and the trucking company or insurance adjuster can discuss all of the factors that might have caused the accident. If the case cannot be settled we can take the case to trial and let a jury decide who was at fault for the loss. Of course one's own carelessness will be a factor and will be considered, but so will the other driver's conduct. The extent of who is more at fault will determine the percentages and the award. If someone has been killed or seriously injured we can help even if the police report indicates you, your vehicle or your family member was partially at fault.

If you have been injured or your family has suffered a devastating loss, you need a team of lawyers who have the experience and resources to act without delay and who have the knowledge to lead an investigation into the cause of the accident and to help you collect the damages you deserve. The Law Firm of Carabin & Shaw has the experience and the resources to protect you and your family. If you need our Law Firm on your side call us day or night at 1.800.862.1260.
