Trucking Accident Causes

When Truck Driver Negligence Results in Serious Accidents

Most truck accidents can be attributed to truck driver negligence or trucking company negligence, or a combination of the two. If you or a family member has been injured in a truck wreck, don't talk to the trucking company or their insurance adjusters. To protect your rights and your ability to receive the compensation you are entitled to, contact Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton.

We are the only law firm based south of Salt Lake County dedicated solely to personal injury and malpractice. Our firm offers four experienced trial attorneys with more than 50 years of combined experience.
