Defense Against Personal Injury And Death Claims
Accidents involving large trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher rate of fatality than accidents involving only smaller vehicles. People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the truck driver or the trucking company responsible for the injuries. However, in most cases, the driver of the car is the party who is truly responsible for the accident. Cars may drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off or hit trucks as they turn. These are all common scenarios, yet your company could still face an injury or death claim from the at-fault driver.
The trial attorneys at Fahl & Donaldson, PLLC, can help you dispute liability and the amount of damages sought by the other party. We have extensive experience in truck accident cases involving a wide variety of issues, including personal injury and death claims.

Utilizing Professional Resources To Defend Your Company
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 in 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
- Forensic engineers
- Accident reconstruction analysts
We use all available experts and evidence to show the jury why your company should not be held liable.
Rapid Immediate Response
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.
We Achieve Optimal Results Through Negotiation, Arbitration And Litigation
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.
