Truck Accidents

“I do not think I can express how much it means to me that you took me under your wings! You did such an excellent job and went above and beyond.”

Emily and Adam Miller, Pine Island, Minnesota

Truck accidents often result in profound injury — or even death.

When 80,000 pounds of steel are involved, there is no such thing as a fender bender.

Is it any wonder that truck accidents cause more serious injuries and deaths than car accidents?

Because of the increased dangers of truck accidents, owners and drivers of commercial trucks are subject to special State and Federal rules and regulations more stringent than passenger vehicles. Commercial truck accidents require specific knowledge of rules and regulations including record keeping rules that apply to owners and drivers of commercial trucks.

Kauffman Law Firm is a member of the following specialized commercial trucking groups:

  • American Association for Justice Interstate Trucking Litigation Section
  • Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLAmerica)
