Omaha Truck Accident Attorney
Representation Backed by Decades of Collective Experience
The high density of commercial truck traffic on roadways throughout Nebraska and Iowa is a constant challenge for other motorists. Massive 18-wheelers, construction rigs, tankers, equipment haulers and other trucks accelerate far more slowly, require far greater distance to stop, and generally operate much differently than passenger vehicles. Most importantly, when a collision occurs, the consequences for anyone in an ordinary vehicle are often devastating.
Trucking accident claims are more complex than ordinary car accident claims. If you or a family member is suffering after a wreck involving a commercial vehicle, it is essential to get experienced legal counsel involved as promptly as you can. At Carlson & Burnett, our experienced Omaha truck accident lawyers will move decisively to protect your rights.
