Large commercial trucks can present a special risk to the other drivers on the road and when a negligent action results in a collision, truckers must be held accountable for their actions. Smaller vehicles are simply not able to stand up to the size, speed, and momentum of an 18-wheeler and accidents that occur often lead to catastrophic injuries.

At Welebir | Tierney, we are highly knowledgeable in the laws and regulations specific to commercial vehicle accidents and can help you to collect every penny that you deserve.
