18-Wheeler Accidents

Talented Trial Attorneys for Trucking Accident Cases

Tractor-trailer crashes can be devastating for victims and can be among the most complicated cases to prepare for trial. The attorneys of Garmer & Prather are experienced in representing clients injured by dangerous drivers and negligent trucking companies. We are committed to sorting through the most complex personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Our team in Lexington has decades of legal experience and has amassed an impressive track record in Kentucky courts. We are also selective in the cases we take, so we can dedicate our full time and talent to each client.

The High Risks of Truck Collisions in Kentucky

Kentucky has many highways across the state where 18-wheelers have a tendency to speed, including Interstate 75, I-64, I-65, I-24, I-69, U.S. 23, the Bluegrass Parkway, Mountain Parkway and Western Kentucky Parkway, as well as the coal roads of eastern Kentucky and farm roads of western Kentucky. We have successfully managed cases arising from crashes on or near major roads across Kentucky.

We Represent Victims and Their Families

At Garmer & Prather, our lawyers represent victims of all types of 18-wheeler crashes, including those involving:

  • Overturned trucks blocking the road
  • Improper loading or oversized loads
  • Underride accidents
  • Speeding or reckless truck driving
  • Improper braking due to maintenance errors
  • Trucks illegally parked on the side of the road
  • Coal trucks without proper braking systems
  • Accidents arising from loose cargo
  • Rear-end collisions and car crash cases

Truck accidents often involve more than one party. Whether the truck driver, the trucking company, the insurance company or any other group, it's crucial to hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries. In some instances, a trucking company may be pushing their drivers to speed on highways. We aim to change this reckless behavior through decisive legal action.

High-Quality Services for Catastrophic Truck Injuries

From coal truck collisions to overturned semis, litigation involving 18-wheelers requires the right kind of experience. In addition to the many variables that contribute to any crash investigation, these collisions involve specific federal, state and local regulations. We understand these regulations, and we know how to expose the improper practices that some truckers and trucking companies routinely use to avoid complying with them.

Have you been seriously injured in a truck crash or have you lost a loved one in a fatal truck collision? Contact our firm to discuss your options. We offer free initial consultations to get started.
