Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the driver or the carrier responsible for their injuries, but at James Law Offices, I know that car drivers bear responsibility when they drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off, or hit trucks as they turn. My firm defends trucking companies and their drivers in the area and throughout Puerto Rico who face personal injury claims for accidents involving their vehicles. I will work to limit your liability and mitigate damages that can severely affect your ability to operate cost-efficiently.

After a truck accident, I quickly converge on the scene to gather evidence for your defense.

I also take notice of any special circumstances that would indicate whether driver intoxication or fatigue played a role in the collision.
