Interstate 81 and Big Rigs – A Recipe for Death and Injury in Virginia
Interstate 81 is one of the nation’s busiest trucking routes. It runs from Tennessee all the way north east to New York.
It may be good for commerce, but it can be deadly for drivers of smaller vehicles. Our Virginia injury lawyers help many people who have suffered terrible injuries from accidents caused by big rigs on I-81. This interstate is often packed with trucks and in their rush to get to their destinations, the drivers may make mistakes. It’s not uncommon to read about accidents involving multiple tractor trailers on I-81 in Virginia.
Reckless negligent and fatigued truck drivers are the bane of I-81. Every year the lives of innocent drivers are lost in these accidents and others end up with life-changing injuries. If you think the trucking companies will admit fault, think again. These firms are well aware of the large payouts that are often awarded to those who sue them. They are prepared to fight lawsuits all the way.
In this video we explain why accidents involving tractor trailers are very different than just your routine automobile accident. With these monster trucks that are potentially going to cause very serious injuries, the insurance companies and the trucking companies will get out to the scene immediately and start trying to document the case in their own favor by saying it wasn’t their driver’s fault.
You need to balance the power by having an experienced Virginia trucking accident lawyer on your side. We will hire the necessary experts to get out there right away also and make sure all of the evidence that will help prove your case and the truck driver’s fault, are obtained and documented.

Our results against trucking companies speak for themselves. Last year we secured a $5 million settlement for a Hampton, VA woman who was badly hurt by a construction truck. We have also secured a $3.5 million settlement in the wrongful death case of a man who died in a fiery accident when he was hit by a truck. All cases are different and we cannot guarantee the same result in your case, although we will work as hard as possible to get the most.
