Portland Truck Accident Attorney

Truck Accidents can be among the most serious and deadly types of personal injury cases. Trucking companies provide services that come with high risk of causing or being involved in an accident.  Trucking companies also go to great lengths to avoid liability. There are many legal obstacles when trying to prove the driver, or the equipment, is at fault for having caused an accident. Handling these cases requires a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level. The Law Office of Jon Friedman has over 28 years of experience in dealing with insurance companies involving truck accident injuries. We provide a comfortable, family environment and take the time to educate our clients on their legal options. Our goal is to make sure your claim progresses as efficiently as possible so you can focus on recovering.

The work of a truck accident lawyer can be highly complex and intricate. It is important to find a lawyer that is experienced and dedicated, yet compassionate to your sensitive situation. The Law Office of Jon Friedman will handle all aspects  of your case from beginning to end. Rest assured that we will seek and take advantage of all the relevant evidence to realize  a fair and comprehensive recovery.

What to Expect With Your Portland Truck Accident

The cause or responsibility of a truck accident can range from the fault of the driver of the truck, the owner of the truck, the vehicle or equipment manufacturer, or even the distributor (in cases involving improper loading). There are many factors to consider. The trucking, hauling and leasing companies often have their own intramural fight between them over who is at fault and which insurance carrier will be responsible for compensating the victim. For example, the truck company might claim that the accident was caused by faulty equipment, such as brakes. Then the brake manufacturer may place the blame on someone else like the leasing company claiming that there was insufficient upkeep. Under current federal law, any company owning a trucking permit is responsible for all accidents involving a truck that has its name displayed on the vehicle.

The Law Office of Jon Friedman offers personal attention and the experience in truck cases to assist you from the first meeting through the end of your claim.
