Truck accidents are among the most catastrophic events that occur on American roadways. Due to their sheer size and weight, trucks have the potential to cause extensive damage and severe injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your losses.
At The Law Offices of Goldfine & Bowles, our team of skilled truck accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your truck accident in order to build a strong case on your behalf. We will work to identify all potential sources of liability, including driver error, truck maintenance issues, and violations of federal safety regulations. Our attorneys consult with a wide network of medical professionals and other experts to accurately assess the extent of our clients’ injuries and determine the full value of their claim.
What Do I Do After a Truck Accident?
Our top priority is to help you obtain fair and just compensation for your damages so you can get your life back on track in the aftermath of your injury.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, taking the following steps in the immediate aftermath of the incident will help us position you for success in your personal injury claim:
