Accidents caused by 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles are unfortunately an all too common occurrence. These types of accidents often leave victims with not only physical injuries but also financial and emotional burdens that can take months or even years to overcome.
At Zinda Law Group, our 18-wheeler accident lawyers have the experience and resources necessary to help you build the strongest case possible and seek maximum truck accident compensation for medical bills, property damage, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and all the other ways your injuries have cost you. And as one of our clients, you will pay nothing unless we win. That’s our No Fee Guarantee.
Why You Need a Truck Accident Attorney
Zinda Law Group can help if you have been injured in a truck wreck. Our 18-wheeler injury lawyers have a wealth of experience when it comes to trucking accidents, and we strive to provide our clients with the best representation possible.
Don’t make the mistake of waiting to contact a truck injury attorney. Legal action may be the last thing on your mind while you’re focusing on healing, but during that time, the trucker’s employer and their insurance company are creating a strategy to minimize your potential injury claim.
In addition, evidence and other important information for your case may be forgotten or lost if you wait too long. Our truck accident lawyers will preserve evidence, conduct investigations, and hire expert witnesses to help you build a strong case and seek the maximum compensation for your injuries.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation
Trucking accidents often result in very serious and expensive personal injuries, but Zinda Law Group will fight aggressively to help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.
You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
- Expenses for child care

In addition, you may be eligible to recover for such non-economic losses as pain and suffering and mental anguish, as well as for punitive damages, which are designed to punish the defendant in cases of serious wrongdoing.
Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents
Trucking accidents can be caused by many factors. Sometimes the truck driver may be speeding or driving dangerously. If the truck has a loaded trailer, it can take 20 to 40 percent longer to stop than a passenger vehicle. These percentages are only increased if the roads are wet or icy.
In order to protect against truck driver error and fatigue, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has established a number of federal regulations for truck drivers. The rules passed to decrease fatigue associated with truck wrecks include the following:
- Drivers may work only 70 hours a week.
- After 70 hours, they may return to driving only if they have rested for 34 continuous hours.
- Truck drivers must take a 30-minute break sometime within the first 8-hour shift.
Despite these increased safety regulations, a truck driver may still become fatigued on the roadways and cause an accident. Trucking wrecks can also be caused by an impaired driver, improper truck loading and weight balance, or poor vehicle maintenance.

They delivered on everything they said…
“My experience with Zinda Law Group was extremely positive. From the very beginning they were informative, communicative, and practical. They delivered on everything they said, and walked me through the process. If I had any questions, either by phone or email I promptly received communication and answers. Hopefully I won’t need to, but if I need an attorney in the future, Zinda will be my first call.”
