Truck Accident Attorneys in Laurel

Injured in a Truck Accident? Call Our Firm for Legal Help!

Trucking is a fact of life on our streets and highways. Surrounded by the D.C. Beltway, I-95, I-495, and other major roadways, McGowan & Cecil, LLC is not far from the scene of many car and truck accidents. Big rig 18-wheelers are the equivalent of warehouses on wheels. A passenger car is no match for a semi tractor-trailer, and for this reason, crashes involving cars and trucks nearly always result in catastrophic injury or death for the passengers and drivers of the automobiles. In contrast, a truck driver may not be injured at all.

Whether you were injured while driving or riding in a car or were injured as a truck driver, you should have your case evaluated by a knowledgeable and aggressive truck accident attorney in Laurel as soon as possible. The sooner you have a lawyer on your case, the more likely it is that the investigation will be fruitful and the truth will come about as to why the accident happened.

Was the truck driver fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Was it a speeding truck? Was there a defective mirror or did brakes fail? Was traffic congestion so heavy that the cars and trucks were tailgating, leaving little room for error and leading to a rear-end accident?

However, very soon, financial pressures will be forced upon you, whether you are ready to deal with them or not. Get help and answers now so that you will be ready to deal with the medical bills, therapy expenses, and other costs of the accident.
