West Virginia Tractor Trailer Crash Attorneys | 18 Wheeler Accidents | Coal and Water Truck Accidents
Accidents involving semi-trucks are different than any other kind of motor vehicle accidents. In the Morgantown area, trucks for logging, frack water, and mining on our West Virginia roads are often fully loaded and hauling several additional tons of weight.
The sheer size and mass of these vehicles put everything else on the road in danger. In addition, the companies that own and operate freight and cargo trucks are subject to federal safety standards. They know the level of liability they are under and will do everything possible to deny responsibility when one of their drivers is at fault, so it is essential you retain the best truck accident lawyer for your case.
Truck companies in West Virginia are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) to keep detailed records of maintenance and driver activities. After an accident, many of these records mysteriously disappear or are altered after-the-fact. This isn't necessarily illegal. But as experienced trial lawyers with defense experience, we know how to guard against such actions. We hold the opposition to the highest standards of the regulations.

Trouble Spots for Truck Accident in North-Central West Virginia: Water, Coal, and Commercial Trucks
There are nearly half a million truck accidents in the U.S. each year, and many of these result in fatalities. The remainder often result in injuries, some minor and others very serious and life-changing.
With four major interstates running through West Virginia: I-79, I-77, I-81, and I-68, as well as many rural highways combined with winter weather and curving mountain roads, we see more trucking accidents than many other states.
Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by the negligence of truck drivers or trucking companies, while others are caused by drivers of cars who are distracted or make poor choices.
