What’s the most dangerous vehicle on the roadway? It’s semi-trucks. Every year in Oregon, there are more than 2,000 truck accidents, and they almost inevitably result in either death or serious bodily injury to the victim.

If you’ve been injured as a result of a truck driver’s carelessness, please contact the law office of Miller & Hopp today. We don’t charge you unless we get money for your claim. Our dedicated truck accident attorneys often keep medical bills from going into arrears, and negotiate with the insurance company, so you don’t have to deal with their stressful and shady tactics.
Oregon Truck Accident Lawsuits
Truck accidents are incredibly different than car accident cases or other personal injury claims. For one thing, these lawsuits are governed by a multitude of complex state and federal laws. Trucking industry practices, the science of handling a massive vehicle on the roadway, and trucking experts are all involved in these types of lawsuits.
A large semi truck requires a different skill set to drive safely. A person with a regular driving license cannot legally drive a truck, and they have to have specialized training and knowledge to get behind the wheel of a semi-truck. Truck drivers have to be aware of the road conditions, and the way their truck and the load they’re carrying will react to the highway. They also need to be mindful of other truckers, cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Careless driving as a trucker can be fatal to other people on the road.
Truck Accident Settlement
Because of the complex nature of trucking cases, insurance companies want to settle for as cheap and as quickly as they possibly can. They are thrilled when a trucking accident victim who has no knowledge of industry practices and regulations in trucking contacts them for a settlement agreement. They often bulldoze individuals with shady negotiating tactics and fear mongering.
An experienced truck accident lawyer knows how to negotiate with the insurance companies to get you a just and fair settlement for your pain and suffering. We won’t let them “lose” crucial pieces of evidence in your case, or try to cover up the fact that the trucking company played hard and fast with the rules. Our promise to you is quick, personalized attention to your case, and we won’t charge a dime unless we get money for you.
