Accidents Don’t Need to Happen

Faulty maintenance is a common cause of truck accidents. If defective equipment isn’t repaired, it can fail while the vehicle is on the road, with serious consequences.

Examples of defective equipment include:

  • Faulty brakes
  • Tire blowouts
  • Defective steering, lights, windshield wipers, hydraulics, etc.
  • Transmission failure
  • Defective straps or tie downs

If you suspect that defective equipment contributed to your truck accident injury, Scott has the knowledge and experience to represent you effectively.

Compassionate. Responsive. Effective.

Scott's knowledge, experience, and qualifications enable him to resolve his cases with outstanding results. He understands that injury victims are going through a difficult time, and that each case is unique. Scott listens carefully to clients to learn about their needs and goals, and develops the most effective strategy for your particular case. He will never pass it along to a less-qualified assistant.
