Why Choose The Barnes Firm After a Buffalo Truck Accident?

Truck accidents can result in serious injuries. Due to the severity of injuries, you can typically recover more damages after a truck accident. Trucking companies are required to carry a large amount of liability insurance for their drivers which translates to higher financial compensation in the event of an accident.

  • Launch a full investigation into the cause of your accident and the events leading up to it
  • Determine who is responsible for your accident
  • Protect you against any counterclaims from other parties
