We Investigate Your Accident, Gather Evidence, and Hold the Responsible Parties Liable
Truck accidents tend to cause greater destruction and more catastrophic injuries than other car accidents. There are also often a larger number of potentially responsible parties.
At the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, our job is to identify every party who may be liable and gather evidence against them.
Parties often responsible for truck accident injuries include:
The Truck Driver
Truck drivers are bound by the same laws as other motorists, plus additional rules and regulations aimed specifically at commercial drivers. If the truck driver who struck you was violating a traffic law, we can use this fact to hold them responsible. Examples of violations include:
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Changing lanes improperly
- Failing to yield
- Following too closely
- Driving under the influence
- Driving while distracted
The law also restricts the number of consecutive hours a trucker may drive, with required rest periods. Drivers must log their driving and resting hours in a log book.
We can subpoena the driver’s log book and scour it for evidence of lack of compliance. If the driver’s log book is behind or not filled out correctly and completely, we can use this against them.
The Trucking Company
In Virginia, trucking companies are vicariously liable for injuries and damage caused by their drivers. That means we can pursue compensation from the driver’s employer, which typically has much greater financial resources than the driver.
The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, can file a claim with the employer and their insurer and negotiate for fair compensation. If they do not agree to provide it, we can file a lawsuit and try your case in front of a jury.
The Shipping Company
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, the shipping company that hired the trucking company to haul a load may also be liable. If we find evidence that the shipping company is liable, we can pursue them aggressively for compensation.

Before You Speak With the Insurance Company, Speak With a Lawyer From the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC
To receive compensation for injuries sustained in a truck accident in Spotsylvania County, you often must go through at least one insurance company. Trucking outfits tend to be highly insured, and their policies cover their drivers. That is good news since insurers have large financial resources.
Insurance companies do, however, go to great lengths to minimize what they must pay out to accident victims. It is critical that you have equally strong representation. You need aggressive negotiators on your side to ensure you receive fair compensation.
That is what we offer you at the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC. To find out more and to schedule a free case evaluation, call 571-229-1800.

Reduced Earning Capacity
If you have to miss work long-term, or if you can only return on a limited basis, you may be eligible for compensation to make up the difference between what you are earning and what you likely would have been earning if you had not been injured.
