Prompt Legal Aid
There may be more than one available option for pursuing your case — from an insurance claim for minor injuries to a jury trial when injuries are severe or result in permanent disability. In your initial consultation at one of our offices in either Hampton, Gloucester, Chesapeake or Williamsburg, your attorney at Hunter Law Firm will discuss the details of your case and review all evidence you may have gathered to help determine which options make the most sense for your case.
Our truck accident lawyers recognize the pain you are experiencing. Collisions with large commercial trucks often result in severe injuries to the passengers in smaller vehicles. We always try to find the least stressful solution that can help you recover the expenses related to your injuries in full.

The Causes of Truck Accidents on the Peninsula and the Southside can be Diverse
If you’re injured in an accident caused by an 18-wheeler, Hunter Law Firm will conduct a thorough investigation into the causes of the collision. Our personal injury lawyers know that liability may extend beyond the truck driver. There may be contributing factors from trucking operations:
- Truck Inspection and Maintenance — A truck should undergo an inspection before every run. If brakes of the tractor-trailer are in need of repair or if the tires need to be replaced, these could be the cause of the accident. A Hunter Law Firm truck accident lawyer may prove liability on the part of those responsible.
- Preparation of the Load — Your truck accident attorney from our firm may discover evidence that the cargo was improperly loaded, and the imbalance may have caused the driver to lose control.
- Unrealistic Delivery Schedules — When customer demands cause trucking management to set overly optimistic delivery schedules, our truck accident lawyers may uncover records showing that drivers failed to observe the legal requirements for rest breaks.
It is critical that your attorney has the trucking operation knowledge to thoroughly investigate all evidence and unravel the true causes of an accident. The personal injury attorneys at Hunter Law Firm have the skills, experience and dedication to develop the most detailed case to support your claim.
