Car crashes can leave victims with catastrophic injuries. Even injuries that at first seemed minor can become significant as time passes. In either case, victims of auto accidents often wonder whether they have any way to hold the responsible party liable and obtain compensation. It is important to consult a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who can assess your options and vigorously pursue your claim.

Truck accidents often cause very severe and catastrophic injuries. The sheer weight, size and speed of over-the-road trucks almost guarantee severe injuries. At Smart, Donohue & NeJame, P.C., our lawyers help clients who were injured in semi-truck accidents. We also handle wrongful death cases for clients whose loved ones died as a result of truck accidents.
Consulting with Experts, Investigating the Accident
Our law firm has helped many individuals obtain compensation and damages for their losses and expenses. Such compensation can cover lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and pain and suffering. Our attorneys consult with experts and specialists in fields such as medicine, accident reconstruction, transportation safety, engineering, road design and life care planning. These experts help us determine the extent and impact of a client’s injuries and add value to the case.
We also investigate the driver and driving history to determine whether the accident was the result of inattention, distraction, poor training, alcohol or drug use or fatigue. In some cases, evaluation of the driver’s log, the truck’s black box, and assessment of road conditions can be critical.
