Why Should You Get Help from a Moore Truck Accident Lawyer?
The stakes are high in truck accident cases. They can produce life-changing, permanent injuries and lead to extremely high medical bills. These injuries include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal injuries, disc injuries, burns fractures and soft-tissue injuries. Sadly, many truck crashes cause deaths.
Trucking companies and their insurance carriers know that a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death claim could mean a huge payout. A case could also damage their reputation within the industry. So, you can expect them to go to extreme measures to avoid paying your claim or to try to pay you the least amount possible.
To protect your rights and interests, you need to have a lawyer by your side. The lawyer can immediately get someone on the scene of the crash to document it and to collect other important evidence. For instance, at Cain Law Office, our rapid-response investigative team can:
- Take photos
- Talk with witnesses
- Review truck driver and company records, including logbooks, inspection papers, maintenance logs, scale receipts and bills of lading
- Download data from the truck’s “black box”
- Analyze GPS, cell phone and satellite communication records
- Demand and preserve the driver’s chemical test results.
All of this evidence can support your claim for compensation and play a key role in your truck accident settlement. But if you wait too long to take action, a great deal of this evidence may could become lost or destroyed.
So, don’t wait: Call Cain Law Office today. We can meet you at our offices in Oklahoma City or Edmond or, if you can’t make it to us, we will come to you at your home or the hospital.
Our primary concern throughout your case will be to make sure that you get the medical treatment you need. We will pursue compensation that covers all of your medical expenses and the treatments costs that you will face in the future. Additionally, we will aggressively seek funds to cover your lost income, pain and suffering and other harm.
What Are Common Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents in Moore, OK?
Many truck accidents result from the negligence of others. They are entirely preventable. Some of the leading causes that we encounter in truck crashes in Moore and other areas of Oklahoma are:

- Driving while drowsy
- Lack of inspection and maintenance

We will conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation to determine the cause of your crash and to identify every party that should be held responsible for the injuries and losses that you and your family have suffered.

- Trucking company
- Mechanic who cut corners or failed to keep proper records
- Truck or trailer owner or leasing company that failed to make repairs
- Freight broker
- Warehouse owner
- Manufacture of the truck and/or trailer.
