Turn to Our Gallup Trucking
Accident Attorneys for Help
If you’ve been in an accident, you need a lawyer who is compassionate, knowledgeable, and experienced. This is especially true if you or a loved one was in an accident with a big rig.
Big rigs are massive compared to cars, and their weight and size means that your car doesn’t stand much of a chance if you get into an accident with one of them. Serious injuries or worse can result from a Gallup trucking accident. A collision with a semi can also mean lost wages, medical expenses, and bills piling up, not to mention the psychological scars of being in such an accident.
From a law perspective, handling truck accidents can be very complex — determining who should be held responsible and knowing how to prove who is at fault are the main issues in trucking accidents, but these are also very difficult to determine.

Who is Responsible for the
A law firm with trucking accident experience knows the federal regulations truck drivers and trucking companies have to follow, and how ignoring these regulations may have contributed to your accident. An experienced lawyer also knows that nowadays, big rigs are required to have technology such as satellite tracking and black boxes, which can help recreate how the accident happened and prove who was at fault.
It takes a lawyer with experience to know who exactly should be held responsible. It may not just be the driver of the big rig—it could be the company that loaded the cargo or the company responsible for transporting the payload, the owner of the big rig, or the driver’s employer. Or, they all might be responsible to some degree.
If you or a loved one has been involved a Gallup trucking accident, don’t talk to their insurance company without a lawyer, and don’t just accept whatever they offer you. You need someone who knows all the different considerations that go into handling a trucking accident case.
