Truck Accident Lawyers Serving Maryland
Proving Fault & Liability in a Trucking Accident
Large trucks are called by many names: big rigs, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, tanker trucks, and flatbeds. Their immense size and weight makes them very dangerous in the event of a traffic collision. The occupants of smaller passenger vehicles have little protection against a massive 80,000-pound truck and are often the victims of serious injuries and even death.
The last thing an injured truck accident victim should have to worry about is having enough money to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. If you or a loved one has been injured in a collision with a large truck, you may not get the full compensation you need through insurance, which would make your recovery and your life more difficult. Fortunately, if the accident was caused by the negligence of another, you have the right to legal action.

Accidents Caused by Negligent Truckers
Detailed state and federal regulations are in place for trucking companies and truck drivers to ensure safe and efficient truck operation and maintenance. However, trucking companies and truck drivers may collectively or independently put profits before safety by violating trucking laws and placing the lives of innocent people at risk. Our attorneys are dedicated to exposing negligence and wrongdoing to help victims recover the full compensation to which they are rightfully entitled.
Types of Truck Accident Injuries
Truck collisions are more likely to cause serious injuries than accidents involving smaller vehicles, not only because they are bigger and heavier, but also because they pose specific accident threats, such as underride and jackknife accidents.
A person involved in a truck crash may suffer a wide range of injuries, including:
- Bumps and bruises
- Burn injuries
- Cuts and lacerations
- Fractured bones
- Crushed bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain injury
- Head injury
- Internal bleeding and other internal injuries
- Amputation injuries
After a Truck Accident in Maryland
Seeking medical attention is the most important step to take immediately following a serious truck accident. Minor injuries can worsen if left unchecked. Truck accident injuries can have a significant impact on a victim’s life. They may require medical treatments, hospitalization, physical therapy or other rehabilitation, surgeries, prescription medication, and potentially in-home care. Without being able to work and with medical bills piling up, an injured victim and their family may fall into hard financial and emotional times, which could compromise their recovery. In this situation, it is important that the victim speak with an experienced lawyer.
By calling the Maryland truck accident lawyers at Alpert Schreyer Poe, you have the opportunity to ensure the full protection of your legal right to compensation. We can explain your options and can help you understand the potential value of your claim, as well as what to expect through the process of pursuing a settlement or award. There are no upfront costs and no attorney fees unless we win.
