Kootenai County Truck Crash Lawyer

Because of their immense size, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles that get into accidents can cause devastating injuries and property damage. Thousands of people sustain serious injuries or are killed in truck accidents in the U.S. each year.

Often these accidents are preventable. Through my personal injury practice, I can help individuals injured in truck accidents and their families obtain compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of future income, ongoing rehabilitation, wrongful death and other damages.

As a former criminal prosecutor, judge pro tem and court commissioner and a practicing lawyer for more than 35 years, I understand better than most attorneys how truck accidents damage victims' lives. I am a tenacious courtroom litigator who is unafraid to pursue aggressive lawsuits against negligent truck drivers, their employers and their insurance companies.

For more than 16 years, I represented insurance companies in personal injury litigation. This experience game me valuable insight into how insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys think about and evaluate cases.
