18-Wheeler Commercial Truck Accidents

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by the negligence of an 18-Wheeler, Truck or Commercial Vehicle, we have the experience and expertise necessary to prosecute your case and maximize your recovery.

Due to the large size of 18-wheeler tractor trucks and trailers, an accident can greatly endanger the lives of other smaller vehicles unnecessarily when 18 wheeler truck operators fail to consider proper crash prevention.

Common Causes of a 18 Wheeler Truck Accident include: Texting and Driving, Mobile Device Operation, Unlicensed Driver, Speeding, Disobeying Safety Procedure, Motor Vehicle Inspection Failure, Repair & Maintenance Failure, Failure to Yield The Right of Way, DUI / DWI, Driver Fatigue, Trucker Overturns, Backing Vehicle Collisions, Mechanical or Brake Failure, Tires Blow Up, Transporting Equipment with Trailers, Overloaded Trucks or Trailers, Loads That Shift Weight.

We understand how devastating an accident with an 18-wheeler truck can be and we at THE SHER LAW FIRM are dedicated to working through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Burn Injury Victims

The toll that burn injuries can have on the lives and futures of burn victims and their families is substantial. Therefore, it is critical that you seek qualified legal representation immediately following a serious burn injury.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a major burn injury caused by another person, contact an experienced a personal injury attorney at The Sher Law Firm today TOLL FREE 1.800.962-5152

With the help of our knowledgeable burn injury lawyer, burn injury victims may be able to collect financial compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of past and future income.

We understand and appreciate the unique needs of burn victims and their families. We recognize that burn victims often require the long-term care of medical experts to treat their physical and emotional trauma.

Burn injuries have resulted from gas released from oil wells, pipelines and refineries; automobile accidents involving fires or gasoline spills, cooking or heating appliances, such as ranges, BBQ grills, gas burners, water heaters, radiators, and space heaters, household appliances, such as washing machines, dryers, and refrigerators; gasoline and other flammable liquid fuel explosions, electrical accidents involving fire or electrocution, structural fires, and caustic chemicals, such as industrial solvents.

Although the number of injuries and deaths attributed to fires and other sources of burn injuries have decreased in recent years, fire deaths still rank as fifth for the leading causes of unintentional injury-related deaths, and the cost associated with treating burns has increased considerably. Depending on the severity of a burn injury, victims may be at risk of serious complications, including dehydration, shock, infection, electrolyte or fluid imbalance, and tissue swelling that can interfere with breathing and circulation. In cases of severe burn injuries, victims may require treatment in specialized burn care centers where they can be attended to by medical professionals that specialize in treating burns.

In addition to the physical, psychological and emotional consequences resulting from serious burn injuries, burn injuries can also require long-term treatment and rehabilitation, which can lead to costly medical expenses. The costs associated with treating burn injuries can be overwhelming, leaving burn survivors to deal with a seemingly insurmountable debt. Fortunately, financial compensation may be available to burn victims whose injuries were caused by the actions of another person.

If you have suffered from a burn injury and you believe you may be entitled to financial compensation, contact The Sher Law Firm today TOLL FREE 1.800.962-5152.

We will thoroughly examine your case, answer your questions, and inform you of your legal rights and options. We work for you and will only take the steps you are comfortable with.

Wrongful Death

We represent people who have been seriously injured and families suffering from the wrongful death of a loved one killed by the negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of others. If you have been injured or suffered the loss of a loved one, it is likely that you are experiencing considerable grief, fear, anxiety and uncertainty.

We take the time to understand not only each client’s case personally, but also their individualized needs and concerns. Although money cannot restore your health or substitute for the loss of someone you loved, we strive to obtain to maximize compensation that will provide security and comfort so you and your family can peacefully move forward.

When people have been injured by the wrongful conduct of others, the law holds responsible parties legally liable for damages.

Victims of such wrongful conduct can recover for lost wages, lost earnings potential, property damage, medical costs, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and punitive or exemplary damages.

In cases involving serious burns, traumatic brain injury, or spinal cord damage, there can often be a significant dispute as to the amount it will take to cover the full range of the injured person’s future treatment and rehabilitation needs.

Our experience with the investigation, documentation, and expertise required for such catastrophic injury claims can represent a major advantage for the seriously injured.
