Large truck accidents oftentimes prove to be much more fatal than normal vehicle collisions due to the large size and weight of these vehicles. Accidents caused by large trucks also cause more serious injuries and damage when compared to car crashes. Depending on who was at fault, a large truck crash may hold the driver, trucking company, truck loading company, or even truck manufacturer responsible for any injuries and damages caused.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) works with federal, state, and local enforcement agencies, the motor carrier industry, and labor and safety interest groups in order to strengthen commercial motor vehicle equipment and operating standards while increasing safety awareness, enforcing strong safety regulations, and improving technology in commercial motor vehicles and safety information systems.
The FMCSA implements many activities that help to prevent commercial trucking accidents. Below are a few examples of some of the activities they enforce:
If you have been injured in a large truck accident, you may be entitled to a cash settlement for your damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings, property damage and other losses.

You need aggressive legal representation on your side to make it a fair fight.

Gordon and his team were so helpful after my accident. Carmela was primarily my contact and she answered all of my questions and would check up on me to see if needed anything. My whole experience with this team was great and they got my medical bills all settled after my accident. I would definitely use them again but hopefully I won’t need too.
Great service, met Gordon personally on a Saturday as we live in LA. Total loss wreck worked out a favorable settlement and reduced expenses. Orlando was a breath of fresh air, took good care everything concerning paperwork. I expect we will use Levinson Law Group for any legal issues.
