Virginia Beach Truck Accident Lawyers

If you or a loved one was involved in a collision with a large commercial truck in or around Virginia Beach, you are likely dealing with significant property damage and serious physical injuries. Road Safe America, a non-profit group, estimates that the driver and occupants of cars constituted approximately 98 percent of the lives lost in wrecks between large trucks and passenger vehicles (e.g., sedans, SUVs, pickup trucks, etc.). Even if your life was spared in the collision, you may have wound up with a traumatic, debilitating injury such as a traumatic brain injury, broken bones, nerve damage, torn muscles, and so forth.

The Virginia Beach truck accident attorneys at Shapiro, Appleton & Duffan are ready to help you and your loved ones. We have handled numerous complex truck accident injury and wrongful death cases in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We know full well that many large tractor-trailers and big rigs use the roads and highways in the Tidewater region such as Interstate 64 (I-64), Interstate 264 (I-264), Interstate 664 (I-664), the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, and the Norfolk-Portsmouth Downtown Tunnel.

In fact, the main office for our personal injury law firm is located at the intersection of Northampton Boulevard and Diamond Springs Road in Virginia Beach, VA which features a large truck stop just down the road.

Why It Makes Sense to Speak to a Truck Accident Attorney in Virginia Beach, Va

If you or a loved one was seriously hurt in a collision with a commercial truck or 18-wheeler in or around the Richmond area, you probably have a bunch of questions. That is where we can help. Our team of experienced Virginia Beach truck wreck lawyers can answer questions concerning insurance coverage, liability, and other important legal issues.  
 
For example, federal rules restrict the total number of hours a driver can operate a tractor-trailer 11 hours per day and 70 driving hours per week. This law is in effect to prevent catastrophic truck accidents caused by driver fatigue. Unfortunately, it is quite common for trucking companies to ignore this law and encourage drivers to keep going and not stop until they reach their destination, even if it means operating a tractor-trailer for 18, 20, or even 24 hours non-stop. In addition, trucking companies are legally required to retain driving logs. These logs can play a critical role in establishing negligence and liability on the truck operator and trucking company.
