Understanding Car vs Truck Accidents

Anyone who drives the streets and highways of Utah has likely had a close call with a large commercial truck or a sense of uneasiness when sharing the road with a massive 18-wheel tractor-trailer rig. When a car-truck accident does occur — as you may recently have been painfully or tragically reminded — the damage and costs are often tremendous.

The opponent in a lawsuit arising from a commercial semi-truck accident is likely to be a major insurer or a financially strong trucking company. It’s wise to work with a collaborative team of attorneys and a sound, successful law firm that is up to the challenge of nailing down truck accident causes and proving negligence to a jury.

Proven Results

In 2001, our founding partner Jeffrey D. Eisenberg tried the case of a young boy who suffered brain damage and tragically lost his family in a car-truck collision. A semi-trailer rig gone out of control struck the family’s car, and a Salt Lake County jury found the trucking company liable and awarded over $16 million for our client’s future care, pain and suffering, lost support, and other economic damages. As of late 2009, this remains the largest-ever jury award to an individual in a Utah personal injury case. You can view other significant case successes on our results page.

Within the realm of car-truck accidents alone, these include:

  • A settlement exceeding $4 million for a trucking accident victim left with quadriplegia (paralysis due to spinal cord injuries)
  • A $1 million settlement for a car-truck accident victim with a traumatic brain injury

Walk-aways from accidents between two or more cars are relatively common. When a large commercial truck is involved in a wreck, the likelihood of catastrophic injuries or a wrongful death increases dramatically. Our truck accident lawyers in Salt Lake City are committed to deploying the most qualified investigators and pursuing every angle on our clients’ behalf.

We feel he was very fair.

  • I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do. He is very knowledgeable about his particular field of law and used that in my best defense. I am very pleased with the job that he did for me.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse. Doctors, surgery, shots, emotional trauma from not being able to physically do things I used to.
