We Help Those Harmed in 18-Wheeler Accidents Put Their Lives Back Together
Large trucks are part of the fabric of America. From coast to coast, these behemoths of the road haul the goods we need to survive. However, our reliance on large trucks has a caveat: they’re dangerous. When a semi-truck crashes, it’s often fatal for the occupants of other vehicles.
This is because trucks are large, heavy, and incredibly difficult to stop.
Truck accidents are caused by:
- Tired drivers
- Poor maintenance
- Reckless trucking companies
- Unqualified truckers
- Irresponsible drivers
- Violating state laws
- Violating federal laws and regulations
At Arnold & Itkin, we know these cases can be complicated. They involve issues such as causation, multiple parties, and more. Truck carriers and insurance companies will do whatever it takes to avoid responsibility. You need a team to fight aggressively for your rights. You need our firm. We take an aggressive approach to every case we handle. This means we research, investigate, and develop the case as if it is headed to trial. This helps give us a strong position at the negotiating table and allows us to be ready at a moment's notice to head into court and advocate on behalf of our clients.
If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, there’s only one 18-wheeler accident law firm that you should call. Arnold & Itkin is known by our results. Whether you’ve been injured by a dangerous driver or a poorly maintained vehicle, our team can help. We’re backed by years of experience, a winning track record, and a reputation for standing up for clients, no matter what.
After years of countering their tactics, we’ve seen nearly every excuse the industry has after a devastating accident injures or kills people. They lawyer up, they make threats, and they try to get away with little to no responsibility. This isn’t right, and our team is ready to fight them. When trucking companies refuse to take responsibility for negligence, our investigations make them. After insurance companies unfairly delay and deny claims, our team demands fair treatment. We’ve obtained record-setting victories by never backing down, even while facing the largest companies. At Arnold & Itkin, we’re here to help you win.

What Causes Truck Accidents?Every truck accident is caused by a combination of different factors. Sometimes, companies push drivers to work exhausting hours until they’re falling asleep at the wheel. Other times, they fail to perform maintenance on the fleet. While all truck accidents are different, they have one thing in common: they’re preventable. Our firm is ready to investigate your accident to determine what happened and who is at fault for it.
What’s the Purpose of a Truck Accident Lawsuit?Trucks are large and heavy, making the injuries they cause to people in smaller vehicles devastating. Our truck accident lawyers are focused on making sure a person has the compensation they need to live as comfortably as possible after they’ve been harmed in an accident. We’ll fight to recover losses such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other forms of compensation our client needs to recover.
Should I Accept an Insurance Settlement After a Truck Accident?While it might seem like an insurer is trying to do the right thing by quickly offering a settlement, you shouldn’t take a settlement until you know the long-term impact of your injuries. Quick settlements are often too low and, once accepted, absolve the company of future liability. If you’ve received a settlement offer, we can help you decide if it’s fair. If the offer isn’t right, we’ll fight to obtain the compensation that you deserve.
