Car And Truck Accidents

Being involved in a car or truck accident is a devastating experience. The shock of the crash, the injuries to body and soul, the financial devastation, and the long road to recovery can all be overwhelming. The aftereffect is even more devastating when the incident is due to the negligence or malice of another.

When you or a loved one is facing the challenge of recovering from a serious car or truck accident, it is important to remember that you have legal rights that entitle you to compensation for your pain and suffering. Indeed, if you have been the victim of an accident — or if a loved one was killed due to the actions of someone else — you may be able to recover a cash award as well as damages for lost wages, future lost earnings, past and future medical treatment, diminished earning capacity, vehicle damage, and pain and suffering.

Trucking Accident Lawyers Who Care

At Hantla & Hantla, LTD., we also represent clients injured in serious semitruck and tractor-trailer crashes. Although truck accident cases are similar to car accident cases, they often times involve injuries that are much more serious — due to the sheer size and weight of a semitruck — and opponents who are much less willing to be fair. From truckers and carriers who can't afford to admit guilt, to insurers who complicate their commercial trucking policies with an abundance of legalese, exclusions and red tape, it takes serious skill to take on and win a truck crash case — something we have done repeatedly and successfully since 1976.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, we can help. We represent clients who have been injured as a result of:

  • Trucker fatigue
  • Loading errors
  • Improper training
  • Speeding
  • Substance abuse
  • Faulty brakes and steering
  • Rollovers and jacknives
  • Road rage
  • Adverse weather
  • Other truck maintenance problems

Our truck accident attorneys provide personalized, practical advice in all truck wreck cases and will work aggressively to identify the cause of your accident and hold all liable parties accountable.

From negotiation to trial, and mediation to ADR, you can trust Hantla & Hantla, LTD., to provide exceptional legal representation in any and all personal injury claims arising out of a car or truck accident.
