Serious or fatal truck accidents are far too common on our nation’s highways. A collision between an 18-wheeler and a passenger vehicle, motorcycle, or pedestrian can often mean permanent spinal injuries, catastrophic brain trauma, horrific burns or death.


At Edwards Kirby, our mission is to see that justice is delivered for you in full when an injury or fatality occurs. Whether your truck accident took place on I-40, I-85, I-95, I-77 or elsewhere, our experienced investigators, engineers and attorneys will examine every detail of your accident, the full extent of your loss and future expenses, and the safety record of the trucker and company involved.


Our experience with federal safety regulations, training and licensing requirements, and corporate insurance relationships in the trucking industry work to our clients’ advantage in personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits involving a big rig or commercial van or bus. We have a long and successful track record litigating serious and often complex truck accident cases.


We can help clients maximize their recovery from commercial vehicle accidents involving:

  • Logging trucks and other flatbeds
  • Delivery vans, moving vans, rental trucks, construction vehicles, and other light-duty or medium-duty commercial vehicles
  • Buses of all kinds
  • Over-the-road big rigs, 18-wheelers, and semis
  • Tanker trucks, auto carriers, or heavy equipment haulers


Edwards Kirby has the expert resources to make a thorough investigation of every aspect of an accident and the resulting injuries. Trucking accidents can be caused by driver fatigue, improper or inadequate inspection of safety equipment such as brakes or lights, unrealistic demands placed on drivers by the truck’s owner, and a host of other problems.


Not only do we exhaust every avenue to investigate and prove liability, our  lawyers work closely with our clients’ treating physicians, medical forensics experts, rehabilitation specialists and occupational therapists to obtain the most complete and accurate understanding possible of what it will take to help them recover or adapt to a disability.


If you or someone in your family has been seriously injured or killed in an accident with a tractor trailer or commercial vehicle, contact Edwards Kirby.
