Commercial trucks are essential to our national economy, but negligent handling of tractor-trailers, especially at highway speed, can be enormously destructive. In a collision with a semi-truck, a passenger car rarely stands a chance, and the car’s occupants can suffer catastrophic injuries. But, in the wake of the destruction, it’s important to act quickly to protect your right to the compensation you deserve. Large trucking companies and their insurers are huge corporations with the resources and determination to fight any claims brought against them. Trying to negotiate a settlement on your own can only lead to frustration. But when you retain Goforth & Lilley, we provide the high-quality legal representation necessary to challenge these large companies and hold them accountable for the harm they’ve caused.

When the costs start to pile up for a life-changing injury, the truck company and its insurer become even more determined to fight the claim. To get the full, fair compensation you deserve, it pays to retain a personal injury lawyer with the experience and skill to fight for your rights.
