Idaho and Eastern Oregon Truck Accident Attorneys
If you’ve been injured in a semi-truck accident, it’s important to talk with an attorney as soon as possible. Sadly, you shouldn’t expect too much support if you work for a commercial trucking company: Since many are self-insured, they’ll often fight any way they can to avoid payouts. The same goes for insurance companies, which are often more interested in their bottom lines more than their policyholders’ wellbeing.
Skaug Law works to make sure that your interests are met. We have the skills, the resources and the dedication to go up against insurance companies on your behalf.
Skaug Law’s Experience with Truck Accident Cases
Skaug Law’s attorneys have decades of experience practicing law in Idaho and Eastern Oregon. We’ve handled a variety of accident cases stemming from:
- Driving too long
- Driver fatigue
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Overloaded vehicles
- Driving with unbalanced load
- Inadequate mirrors and lights
We’ve seen the lengths to which some semi-truck drivers will go to stay on the road, including taking stimulants to stay awake. Sadly, we also know the damage caused by a tried driver losing control. In some of these cases, drivers have received punitive damages because of the multiple violations they’ve committed.
Skaug Law works with the state police and other experts to nail down the facts of a case. As soon as we can, we send our investigators to the scenes of accidents so that we have accurate details.
We take pride in using every legal means possible to get our clients fair compensation for their injuries. We’ve successfully handled lawsuits against uninsured and bankrupt commercial trucking companies.
