Trucking Accident Defense


18-wheel and heavy haul trucks move heavy equipment, chemicals, oil & gas products, materials and various goods throughout the United States. When accidents occur, and serious bodily injury and death claims are asserted against your company, whether local or national, in state or federal court, the attorneys at Fahl & Donaldson provide a vigorous defense for your company.

Accidents involving large trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the driver or the trucking company responsible for their injuries. In most cases, the driver of the car or other vehicle involved is often the one who is truly responsible for the accident. Cars drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off, or hit trucks as they turn. The attorneys at Fahl & Donaldson, PLLC help you dispute liability and the amount of damages in cases involving:

  • Accidents involving alleged failure to yield right of way, unsafe lane change, etc.
  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • Unsafe road conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers
  • Truck rollovers
  • Oversized trucks
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake failure
  • Truck maintenance
  • Mechanical defects
  • Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers

Our attorneys defend even the toughest claims and seek to limit your liability.


To prove a personal injury claim, the injured person will try to show that their injuries resulted from your negligence. We consult respected experts with experience addressing the nuances of trucking accident claims. At trial, these professionals educate jurors about the actual causes of the accident. Our lawyers regularly work with:

  • Trauma doctors
  • Chiropractors
  • Forensic engineers
  • Mechanics
  • Accident reconstruction analysts

We use all available experts and evidence to show the jury why your company should not be held liable.


After a truck accident, we quickly converge on the scene to gather evidence for your defense. We measure and photograph the scene of the accident to preserve such crucial evidence as skid marks and vehicle positioning. We talk to witnesses while their memories are fresh. We also take notice of any special circumstances that would indicate whether driver intoxication or fatigue played a role in the collision.


Our attorneys employ a practical, professional approach to help your business defend or settle claims. Injury claims involving commercial vehicles can result in massive judgments. Having the right attorney defend your company is essential to reaching a settlement. Our attorneys help trucking companies and shipping companies by applying their extensive litigation experience and settlement negotiations skills to your case.
