The commercial trucking industry is regulated by both federal and state agencies. Many legal requirements were imposed upon trucking firms in order to protect the safety of other drivers.
Depending upon the type of truck accident and the actual underlying cause, there could be a number of liable parties that could be forced to pay compensation to victims for damages.
Unfortunately, a large number of serious or fatal truck accidents continue to occur in West Virginia. In these cases, establishing the cause of the accident is a critical issue with regards to pursuing compensation. At Cranston & Edwards, PLLC, our legal team has the experience, aggressive approach, and track record that you want fighting for you or your loved one.

Over the years, we have achieved many notable victories in difficult cases, including serving the family members of miners killed in the Sago Mine disaster. In order to pursue compensation from a trucking firm or truck manufacturer, the case must be carefully documented to establish liability. Even when there is clear evidence of negligence, the injury claim could still be contested. Commercial insurance companies often take actions to reduce the settlement or to dispute liability.
Our professional, aggressive legal team has worked in this arena long enough to know how to manage these cases to the benefit of the injured client. Should the insurance company or other liable party be unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement, we can go to court for a verdict. We will do whatever it takes to fight for our injured clients, and we are personally committed to each individual case we take on.
