The Slocumb Law Firm fights for you
In a port city like Mobile, truck traffic is a fact of life. We all see the 18-wheelers carrying cargo on roads such as I-10, I-65, I-165 and other major highways. While those trucks play a major role in our economy, they also present a serious potential hazard to motorists. If you’ve been hurt, you need an experienced Mobile truck accident attorney on your side.
The Slocumb Law Firm knows how to fight for truck accident victims in Mobile and throughout Alabama. We have the resources and experience you need, and the trucking companies know how hard we fight for our clients.
Mobile truck accident victims have an uphill road to recovery
It’s easy to see why big-rig trucks are so potentially dangerous. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh 80,000 pounds or more – many times the size and weight of a passenger car or pickup truck. When there’s a collision between a big truck and a smaller vehicle, the injuries sustained can be massive. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and lost limbs are all common. Sadly, too many of these crashes are fatal.
But the hurt doesn’t stop when the wreck itself is over. Trucking companies and their insurance companies fight hard to pay victims as little as possible. These are complex cases with hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars at stake, which means you’ll be facing their best attorneys and adjusters. And in a contributory negligence state like Alabama, all the insurance company has to do is show that you were even slightly at fault in order to deny your claim.
That’s not right. The trucking companies have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles safely. And we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
