18-Wheeler Accidents

When an 18-wheeler collides with a smaller vehicle, it's not a fair fight.

It is bad enough that negligence on the part of the big rig operator or trucking company probably caused the accident. But the sheer size of the massive tractor-trailer that crashed into you or your family member is also likely to have caused devastating or perhaps even fatal injuries.

At Cormany Law PLLC, we can help you level the playing field against big trucking companies that cause such grievous harm. Led by attorney Kris Cormany, we have been helping injured West Virginians seek the compensation they deserve for more than 17 years.

From our office in Charleston, we serve clients throughout the surrounding area. We encourage you to talk with us in a free initial consultation about the specific facts of your case.

Investigating The Causes Of Your Accident

Because of our experience in truck accident cases, we know how important it is to make sure there is a thorough investigation of the causes of your accident. State and federal authorities may or may not follow through with this in a timely manner. We are always prepared to deploy our own resources to get to the heart of what happened in a truck crash.

Many types of negligence may have occurred. These include:

  • Improper handling of hazardous materials
  • Failure to conduct required medical testing or drug and alcohol testing for drivers
  • Violation of hours-of-service limitations intended to prevent truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to secure the cargo sufficiently
  • Distracted driving, often related to inappropriate or unlawful cellphone use

No matter what caused the accident that injured you or killed your family member, we are determined to get at the truth and use it to build your case for full and fair compensation.

Complimentary, No-Obligation Consultation Available

We're not saying that getting compensation will be easy. Trucking companies and their insurance companies have many tricks of the trade to try to minimize their responsibility for the harm you have suffered.

At Cormany Law PLLC, we have the experience and skill to anticipate those tactics and keep the focus on the merits of your claim for compensation.
