For collisions or any other road accidents, the involvement of large trucks usually means catastrophic injuries or even fatalities.
Because of their massive size and weight, limited maneuverability, and large blind spots, trucks are prone to accidents. This is exactly why special and stricter rules and regulations apply to the trucking industry. Unfortunately, due to recklessness and negligence, many accidents involving these big trucks still happen.
Some Important Statistics on Truck Accidents
- More or less 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the U.S.
- 98% of fatalities occur to the occupants of the passenger vehicles in tractor trailer-related accidents.

Jimmy Cook got me a 100k settlement for my car accident claim. The insurance company was trying to say I was at fault. I honestly wasn’t expecting but a few thousand dollars at best. I’m still on vacation after receiving my settlement. Thanks Jimmy
I went to see Jimmy Cook at Cook Law Office for my automobile accident. His office staff was always very nice and professional and I always was able to speak to someone if I had a question or concern. I did not think I would be able to get my bills paid but his office was able to get me a good settlement that took care of any bills I still owed. I have another accident and am having Jimmy Cook handle that one as well. I would recommend Cook Law Office to anyone that has an injury.
I was very glad I went to Jimmy to handle my accident. The staff always answered my questions my questions quickly, no matter how big or small. Cook Law Office was able to get me the policy limits and avoid filing a lawsuit. I would recommend Jimmy Cook to anyone who has been hurt in an accident.
This guy is amazing. When I met him he said we have the potential of getting a huge settlement. After some medical results came back there was not as much damage as originally thought. I was expecting little to no compensation. Just got the settlement and the amount was a lot closer to his original estimate even with the minimal damage. I also liked how he kept me in the loop. I did not have to call and wait for an answer. Mr. Cook and Victoria called often.
