In 2021, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported that 5,904 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes, and many more were involved in injury accidents. In the aftermath of a large truck accident causing injuries or fatalities, seeking legal representation becomes crucial to protect your rights and navigate the complexities associated with such cases. Here’s why having a lawyer is essential in these situations.
Understanding of Complex Laws
Large truck accidents often involve complex regulations governed by both federal and state laws. Lawyers specializing in truck accidents understand these intricate laws, including compliance issues related to trucking companies, drivers and vehicle maintenance. These accidents require extensive investigation. Experienced lawyers like our team at Rowsey & Stelter, Attorneys at Law have the resources and expertise to conduct thorough investigations, gathering crucial evidence such as black box data, driver logs, maintenance records, and witness statements, which is essential in building a strong case.
Determination of Liability
Truck accidents can involve various liable parties, including the truck driver, trucking company, manufacturers or even governmental entities. A lawyer can identify all potentially responsible parties and hold them accountable for their role in the accident. It may be necessary to negotiate with multiple insurance companies or bring them to court to obtain compensation for injuries.
Our lawyers at Rowsey & Stelter, Attorneys at Law, are well-versed in dealing with insurance companies that often attempt to minimize settlements.

Our attorneys have the expertise to evaluate the full extent of your damages, considering medical expenses, lost wages, future rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering. They aim to secure the maximum compensation you deserve.
In cases where negotiations fail, our lawyers provide effective courtroom representation. They prepare a compelling case and advocate on your behalf to secure fair compensation through litigation if necessary. Our lawyers also ensure that claims are submitted within the statute of limitations— the time limit within which legal action must be initiated.
