Iowa Truck Accidents Injury Attorneys
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) governs the majority of large trucks and commercial vehicles hauling freight, materials and equipment over Iowa roads and interstate freeways. Fortunately, most truck drivers and their employers follow the regulations that protect other drivers on the road. Unfortunately, though, during a typical year more than 700 trucks, buses and commercial delivery vehicles will be in accidents resulting in injury and/or fatalities on Iowa roads.*

Why It Is Important To Get An Attorney On Your Side As Soon As Possible
Truck wreck claims are unique because of the strategies truck companies employ to protect themselves from liability. Many not only carry insurance policy coverage but also self-insure because of the significant amount of financial damages they may be held liable for. Many even employ contract investigators in metropolitan areas, who are called to the scene of truck accidents within minutes.
We handle all types of truck accident injury and wrongful death cases, including cases resulting from:
- Undertrained truck driver, truck driver error
- Commercial delivery van accidents
- Improper 18-wheeler cab or trailer maintenance
- Unsafe loads, overloaded trailers
- Truck driver fatigue, asleep behind the wheel
- Truck driver DUI
- Truck driver speeding or reckless driving
