Truck Accidents

Helping Massachusetts Accident Victims Pursue Fair Compensation

Tractor-trailer trucks are extremely heavy vehicles that can cause serious damage in collisions, including catastrophic and, all too often, fatal injuries. Truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to operate these vehicles safely so as to avoid these tragic outcomes.

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a collision with an 18-wheeler, you need an experienced lawyer. Bedford-Concord truck accident attorney Peter G. DeGelleke has a record of successfully pursuing personal injury claims on behalf of Massachusetts truck accident victims.

Holding Negligent Trucking Companies Legally Accountable

Trucking companies and their insurance carriers have a great deal at stake every time there is an accident involving one of their vehicles. The moment an accident happens, they have lawyers, accident scene investigators, and other representatives working to limit their liability.

The sooner you contact an attorney about your truck accident claim, the better chance you will have of obtaining the compensation you deserve and are legally entitled to receive.

The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the federal government, and many of those regulations are designed with safety in mind, including limits on how much weight trucks can carry and how many hours drivers can stay behind the wheel without taking breaks.

Mr. DeGelleke has the experience and resources to carefully investigate your case in order to uncover any evidence that the truck that hit you was in violation of any applicable rules. If so, that evidence may dramatically increase the chances of success on your personal injury claim.
