In truck accident cases, time is of the essence. The trucking company will waste evidence as quickly as it can in order to avoid having to pay money to the accident victims or their families. In many cases, the company will have its own lawyers flown by helicopter to the accident scene so they arrive at the same time as the police.
This means the other side is putting its defense together before you even get out of your car. To combat this, you need a knowledgeable legal team on your side as well.
At the Louisville law firm of T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, we are here to take immediate action on your behalf. T.J. has been a successful trial lawyer for more than 20 years and has experience investigating numerous truck accident cases.

- The number of hours the driver spent on the road
- Any mechanical problems with the truck
- The company’s history of safety violations
