We’ll Give You a Voice to Tell Your Story and Demand Justice!
Unfortunately, our nation’s highways are often traveled by tired, unqualified, or improperly trained truck drivers who pose a serious threat to everyone on the road. Falling asleep at the wheel, carrying an excessive load, or taking dangerous medications, truck drivers cause accidents that often involve serious injuries and death. At the Butler Law Group, our personal injury attorneys immediately investigate tractor-trailer crash sites, interview witnesses, and meticulously review company records in order to identify driver or company negligence. Collecting evidence, including a truck’s onboard black box, we build our cases using the industry’s best experts, facts, and forensic science.

A Day in the Life: Telling Our Client’s Story
Whether it’s before a jury or in the boardroom, we eloquently and effectively demonstrate the plight of our clients, the pain and suffering they endure on a day-to-day basis because of their injuries. Using state-of-the-art multi-media technology, we provide convincing, moving portraits of lives changed forever through day-in-the-life videos of our clients.
Portraying the struggles our clients endure in performing every day simple tasks provides jurors and insurers with compelling testimony that cannot be ignored or denied. We tell your story, put a face to the injuries suffered, and demand justice.
Leveling the Playing Field
We also employ state of the art animations as well as computer simulations in order to uncover facts in dispute. By plugging in speeds, weights, length of skid marks and other variables, our computer simulations accurately recreate what really happened in an accident.
When drivers claim they weren’t going too fast or performed an evasive maneuver, our computer simulations crunch the variables involved and indicate whether they are telling the truth or not. Arguing the evidence, we have the tools necessary to uncover the truth and level the playing field. Read some of our cases summaries.
Truck Accident Lawyer
- Every 16 minutes, a person is injured or killed in an accident involving a large commercial truck

Each day, for-profit trucking companies are sending out machines that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, on the road for thousands of miles and sometimes ten hours or more a day, to drive side by side with the 3,000 lb. automobiles you and I generally drive.
If that is not unsettling enough, we find that these massive machines are at times being operated by over-worked, tired, improperly trained, or flat-out unqualified drivers. Falling asleep at the wheel, carrying excessive loads, and impaired drivers can occur with irresponsible trucking companies, which is an endangerment not only to you but to our entire community as well.
(Although most trucking companies honor the responsibilities of having well-rested, competent drivers, with maintained trucks, some ignore these responsibilities and create tragic consequences for victims that could otherwise have been preventable. Negligence can cause unsafe operation by the truck driver, poor maintenance, mechanical failure, and fatigue leading to a tragedy that will last a lifetime.)
Butler Law Group understands that these commercial trucking companies are quick to send their representatives to the scene of the accident in an attempt to avoid responsibility and minimize the value of a victim’s claim. That is why we have a dedicated team ready to quickly investigate crash sites, interview witnesses, and meticulously review company records in order to identify driver or company negligence. We take it a step further by building our cases off of the work of leading experts and the latest technology in forensic science to ensure the truth is heard before the law.
