Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Truck accident attorneys who get results

We see tractor-trailers on the roads and highways of West Virginia every day, and usually don't think twice about it. But if you are in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, it can change your life permanently. The truck accident attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC hold negligent parties accountable and help you get the compensation you need and deserve.

When fully loaded, a tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. In a crash, a car is no match for one of these trucks traveling at high speed. The damage is extensive and the car driver and passenger can be left with injuries that are serious, if not catastrophic. Survivors may need medical care for the rest of their lives.

Trust our attorneys to help you with these complex cases

Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers can be complicated, because many different parties could be involved. And it can be difficult to determine liability for the accident. One company may have hired the driver. Another may own the truck, and still another may own the trailer. One company may have manufactured the cargo, but another may have packaged it. Another company may have responsible for loading the cargo. Still another company may have manufactured a defective part on the tractor-trailer.

Making the situation even more complicated is the fact that each company has its own insurance company and its own attorney. A tractor-trailer accident can involve many different parties, each acting in its own best interests. At Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC, we are only concerned about what's best for you.

Our legal team conducts a thorough investigation of the accident.
