When a passenger car collides with a large truck, there can be major property damage and serious—or even catastrophic—injuries to the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle. As a result, victims often find themselves in need of extensive, costly medical treatment involving prolonged stays in the hospital. This is usually followed by an extended period of painful and exhausting rehabilitation.
If you are struggling under similar circumstances, we want to assure you that you don’t have to carry that burden alone. At Fielding Law, we firmly believe that the people or entities responsible for your predicament due to negligent or reckless actions should be brought to justice.

A personal injury claim brought on your behalf against the truck driver or trucking company may be a huge step forward towards your recovery. Thus, do not hesitate to reach out to our legal team without delay. You can schedule a free initial consultation with one of our attorneys who will listen attentively to the circumstances of your accident and provide preliminary advice with regard to the best legal options available in your case.
Compensation claims related to motor vehicle accidents involving large trucks are notorious for their complexity and technicality. The process can be unpredictable and difficult to handle—much more so than in the case of a typical car crash. One of the main reasons for this complexity is the question of who is at fault in a truck accident.
In most motor vehicle accidents involving passenger cars, the victim files a compensation claim against the at-fault party and expects to be reimbursed by their liability insurance. In the case of an accident caused by the operator of a truck, however, the driver may only be one of many at-fault parties involved. In fact, in some cases, a personal injury claim won’t be directed against the driver at all—rather, the victim will seek compensation directly from the trucking company.
Trucking companies know all too well that claims often demand high compensation amounts due to the nature and scope of truck accident injuries and the resulting costs to the victim. That’s why they usually team up with large and powerful insurance companies who have the resources and competent lawyers to fight claims with ferocious determination. Sadly, this may allow both the trucking company and the insurance company to completely evade financial liability for the injuries. The victim could be left with no compensation whatsoever.
Realistically, if you want to stand a chance in a legal battle against a trucking company and its insurance, you shouldn’t handle your case on your own. Rather, you need to enlist the services of a law firm with a highly knowledgeable legal team experienced in truck accident claims and enough resources to be able to support your case until its successful conclusion.
This is exactly what Fielding Law Injury Lawyers can bring to the table. Our team of truck accident attorneys has ample experience in handling injury claims related to big-rig crashes, along with a record of success in obtaining large compensation amounts for our clients.
We will not be intimidated—neither by the trucking company nor by their insurer—and we will settle for nothing short of fair recovery, enabling you to sufficiently cover your financial losses. We will also provide you with comprehensive legal assistance, handling your claim so that you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery.
One of the first questions our truck accident victims ask our attorneys during the initial conversation is: “How much is my claim worth?” Understandably, with mounting medical bills and all other unexpected expenses the injured person is left with after the accident, financial issues are usually the most pressing concern for our potential clients.
Nevertheless, it is important to recognize that every case is different. Putting a definite number on the worth of a claim without thoroughly analyzing all the circumstances is practically impossible. What we can promise our clients is that we will do our utmost to secure the highest amount of compensation possible in each individual case.
Some accident victims—even those who are in a position to file a valid personal injury claim and have a chance of obtaining compensation—never reach out to a lawyer for fear of being unable to afford one.

Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis—which means that we only get paid if we manage to secure financial compensation for your injuries—either through a settlement or a jury verdict.

You will be scheduled for a personal consultation with one of our experienced truck accident attorneys—completely free of charge.
