30 Years Experience Handling Truck Accident Claims

If you are injured in a trucking accident, you have the right to seek compensation from the negligent driver, and sometimes the trucking company, as well. The Peyton Law Firm will assist in holding the negligent party responsible and recovering maximum damages on your behalf.

Contact our office in Nitro, West Virginia, for a free initial consultation regarding your truck accident claim.

Federal Regulation Violations

The trucking industry is heavily regulated in an attempt to reduce the number of truck accidents and serious injuries. Unfortunately, these federal trucking regulations are frequently ignored. When a truck company fails to maintain its vehicles, forces long working hours, or hires unsafe drivers, it can be held accountable for accident injuries or wrongful death. When a driver uses illegal substances, improperly loads a tractor trailer or falsifies log book entries, he should be held liable.

At the Peyton Law Firm, we have more than 30 years of experience representing victims of tractor trailer accidents. We are highly familiar with the regulations, and know when to pursue an accident claim against the truck driver, the company or both. We will carefully evaluate your case and advise on the option that can yield the most favorable outcome. Once we determine fault for the semi accident, we will work hard to gather evidence and prove liability.

Recovering Damages for Serious Injuries

The difference in size between a semi-truck and car or motorcycle makes serious or fatal injuries likely. Whatever your or loved one's injury — spinal cord injury, brain injury, broken bones — we are committed to obtaining the full and fair amount of compensation you deserve.

Our aggressive approach to cases has helped us recover millions of dollars in compensation in more than 1000 personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. You, too, can benefit from this record of success.
