Heiting & Irwin Specializes in Big-Rig / Tractor Trailer Accidents. We have represented many clients injured by semis over the years, including high profile cases in Riverside, San Bernardino and Rancho Cucamonga.
Tractor Trailer Accident cases require special handling and special investigation techniques. Had the driver been working for 16+ hours before the incident occurred? Is camera footage from within the cab available? Was there a GPS or other type of tracking/recording device on the truck? This type of information is not typically available in a collision between two motor vehicles.
When big-rigs are involved, the likelihood of catastrophic injuries also increases. Make sure you have an attorney that will competently handle the presentation of your claim and retain the right experts to combat the trucking company’s defense team.
