Coal & Logging Truck Accidents

Coal and logging trucks are common sites on West Virginia roads. Unfortunately, they are also frequently involved in dangerous accidents that can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to people in passenger vehicles. If you were injured in one of these accidents, you will need legal help to fight the coal or logging company and the trucking company.

He knows how to negotiate with corporations and insurance companies. When they will not treat his clients fairly, he can take the case to trial.

We Find The Cause And Get Compensation For Victims

Injuries from coal and logging truck accidents may include lacerations, fractures, amputations, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burns, internal organ damage and crush injuries. Because of the size and weight disparity between these trucks and passenger vehicles, wrongful death is not uncommon. We seek compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering, as well as funeral/burial expenses and additional losses for surviving family members.

We will work with experts to determine the cause of the accident. Problems with the cargo are often the cause of log and coal trucks. While the industries are supposed to follow regulations about loading and securing cargo, many of these trucks are overweight or have poorly secured loads. The weight can be too much for the brakes and other truck systems to handle. Overweight trucks can be difficult to control, especially on mountainous roads. Both types of trucks can also cause accidents by spilling cargo onto the road and/or other vehicles.
