Truck Accident Injury Lawsuit Lawyer

Truck accidents are among the most dangerous catastrophes on the road. When large 18-wheel trucks collide with smaller passenger cars, the results can be deadly. Usually, in a serious collision involving a motor vehicle/tractor-trailer, the respective insurance company will retain the services of a competent and experienced defense attorney, a qualified field adjuster and an accident reconstructionist experienced in investigating wrecks. These decisions are made to protect the interests of the insured and to defeat the claims of injured victims or significantly reduce their value.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.
