 The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration defines large trucks as commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 10,000 pounds.

In 2015, large trucks and buses were involved in more than 87,000 accidents and more than 4,300 fatal collisions

Early reporting statistics show more than 2,000 fatalities through first six months of 2016. Unfortunately, due to the weight of large trucks and buses, the injuries that result from accidents are often serious or fatal.

In many cases, accidents result from trucking corporations and drivers not following safety regulations and precautions designed to keep our roads safe. Drivers often are not properly trained, are coerced into driving while fatigued, or are put into vehicles that are overloaded or not properly inspected or maintained.

Given the serious and fatal injuries that occur as a result of large truck and bus accidents, it is important that you trust a truck accident attorney that is committed to investigating your case, hiring the best experts and aggressively pursing your claims.


In helping clients for over three decades, Cowan & Hilgeman understands how to protect your rights against professional insurance adjustors that stop at no cost to minimize your claim, deny your medical bills and treat you unfairly.  The truck accident attorneys at Cowan & Hilgeman will explain the entire claim process, from start to finish.
