Thousands of medium and heavy trucks travel more than 200 million miles and carry over 7 billion tons of freight in the United States every year. With that many trucks on the road, there are bound to be trucking accidents. It is surprising how few law firms actually specialize in accidents involving trucks and the trucking. At Mann & Maximon, LLC, we know trucks and trucking whether it be tractors, trailers, straight trucks, box trucks, bobtails, big rigs or small. We handle them all. We know about dangerous operators and dangerous driving and all of the federal regulations regarding their use and operation. In order to properly handle a trucking case, a lawyer needs to know about all aspects of the trucking industry including:
Unlike automobiles, trucks are heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act. All trucks and truckers are required to know and comply with these rules. If a trucker is involved in an accident, it is essential to analyze whether or not they complied with the regulations. At Mann & Maximon, LLC, we have the specialized knowledge to properly handle a trucking case. From accident reconstructions to carrier regulation compliance, we have the tools to do the job. If you are involved in an accident involving a truck, it is important to have the case investigated as soon as possible. Here is what to do immediately after an accident:
- Do not move the vehicles and call the police;
- If you are hurt, call for an ambulance;
- If possible, obtain witness information, sometimes witnesses leave before the police arrive;
- Do not discuss with anybody other than the authorities;
- Take photographs at the scene, if you have a camera, or later if possible;
- Obtain follow up medical treatment for any injuries;
- Call an attorney for further advice;
If you or your loved one has been injured in a truck accident call Mann & Maximon at your earliest convenience.

What Our Clients
When we went to the settlement conference, I was ready to accept what was offered, but Stuart encouraged me to go to trial. He was not afraid of the insurance company or their lawyers. At trial, we received three times more than the insurance company offered us. I was very impressed with his trial skills.Mann & Maximon Client
Having been the innocent victim of a head-on auto accident caused by texting while driving, I sought Stuart Mann’s legal counsel. From the outset he was fully dedicated to accompanying me through a lengthy recuperative process, using his skills, experience, and resources to achieve justice and adequate financial compensation on my behalf. His unconditional concern for my well-being and his involvement of time and effort on my behalf freed me from legal concerns and responsibilities, allowing me to focus my efforts and energy on physical and mental recovery. I strongly recommend Stuart Mann to anyone needing the legal services he offers.Mann & Maximon Client
My car accident left me shattered, physically and mentally. Stuart’s offer of help came soon after I was released from intensive care, and he’s been on my side since. When you’re involved in a big accident, there are so many things you need to concentrate on, and it’s been a great comfort to know I don’t need to spend untold hours dealing with insurance companies or hospital billing departments. Thanks Stuart!Mann & Maximon Client
