Act Fast To Preserve Your Rights After A Truck Accident
Truck accidents can cause catastrophic damage to their victims. If you have suffered an injury in a truck crash, you should act quickly to make sure your case receives the attention it deserves.

The attorneys at Law Office of Colonna, Doyle & Simeola have over 100 years of combined legal experience and have been serving personal injury clients throughout the Boston area since 1995. Our hands-on team will handle your case with respect and compassion. We purposefully keep our team small to provide you with a personal approach to the law.
Questions Of Liability
Truck crashes involve commercial vehicles, meaning a company owns or operates them, or both. Sometimes a separate company owns the semi-truck, while another owns the trailer or the contents in the trailer, and yet another company employs the driver. When that truck hits your car, who is responsible for the accident?
When you hire Law Office of Colonna, Doyle & Simeola, we will start investigation the crash immediately in order to answer these questions of liability and insurance coverage. We will look at the driver’s conduct, whether the company loaded the truck properly and whether any mechanical defects contributed to the accident. Commercial drivers must follow many state and federal safety regulations, and we will look into any violations.
In order to be most effective, however, we must start investigating as soon as possible. We must preserve evidence of the crash, and the more time that passes, the more difficult that can be. The insurance companies involved will try to disprove your case and rest assured that they will have people on the scene immediately after the accident.
Coping With Serious Injuries
The serious injuries resulting from truck accidents raise the stakes for these cases on both sides. Injuries from truck accidents are often life-threatening and require long-term medical care.
