Helping You Recover After Catastrophic Injuries Due To Truck Accidents
Semi trucks and other commercial vehicles are massive, in terms of both weight and physical size. Because of this, trucking accidents cause more catastrophic injuries than any other traffic collisions.
Any time they collide with an 18-wheeler or another large truck, passenger vehicle drivers have a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries, and accidents are much more likely to be fatal.

How To Determine The Liable Parties
Trucking accidents are complex because anyone who wishes to file a lawsuit must determine which liable party or parties are involved. Since most trucks on the road are there for commercial purposes, the blame cannot be placed on the truck driver alone.
Other liable parties may include:
- The employer of the truck driver – Particularly if the company required the driver to work for too many hours, drive while fatigued or drive under other unsafe conditions.
- The truck manufacturer – Especially if the crash was caused by mechanical problems.
- The truck maintenance company – Particularly if the truck was deemed safe but malfunctioned at the time of the accident.
- The shipping or loading company – Especially if the truck’s improperly packed load caused or contributed to the accident.
At The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC, I provide each client I take on with a thorough investigation of their case. This helps me reveal the exact cause of the accident, along with any contributing factors.
I even employ the services of accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to determine which parties are at fault in the trucking accident case.
Settlement Or Trial?
When you trust me with your case, you can rest assured that I won’t stop fighting until I’ve received the most favorable settlement on your behalf. In the event that I don’t reach a fair settlement with the other party, know that I have the skill and tenacity to litigate your case in front of a judge or jury.
This is also another place where my efforts to get to know you, your case and your goals come in handy. If you simply want to collect the most lucrative settlement possible and move on, I will think twice about going to court, but if you want to hold the trucking company accountable and pursue large-scale justice, I will give further consideration to a trial.
