Truck Accident Representation In Iowa And Nebraska

Strategically located at the crossroads of I-29 running north and south and I-80 running east and west, the region including Council Bluffs is a common location for big-rig accidents. Telpner Peterson Law Firm, LLP, a well-established and respected personal injury law firm, has the experience and resources to represent people injured in crashes involving 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles.

A tractor-trailer versus car collision often means that an occupant of the car will suffer serious, catastrophic or fatal injuries. If you or your loved one was seriously injured in a truck accident in Iowa or Nebraska, our attorneys, Walter P. Thomas can begin the process of finding out how it happened. This information can form the basis of a well-founded injury claim or wrongful death claim or lawsuit.

When we investigate the causes of the truck accident that injured you or your family member, we may discover that:

  • The truck driver had previous moving violations and had not been properly screened by the company that hired him or her.
  • The truck driver was fatigued.
  • The truck driver made an illegal lane change.
  • The truck had not been properly inspected before the trip.

We most often represent people who were injured in other vehicles that were struck by trucks. However, we also represent injured truck drivers in rollovers, jackknife accidents, collisions with concrete structures and other types of crashes. If you were injured as a trucker while driving through Iowa, be aware that Iowa’s generous workers’ compensation laws may offer you a better overall outcome than the workers’ compensation laws in your home state.
