How much does Keller & Keller charge their semi-accident clients?

Keller & Keller works on a contingency fee basis. This means that we will never ask anyone who was struck by a semi-truck to pay us up front costs or hourly rates while we work on your case.

This arrangement is especially advantageous for our clients who were injured in an accident involving a semi-truck or tractor trailer. These cases often require outside expert analysis and special investigation, likely making it cost-prohibitive for a client to try and handle the claim on their own.

Truck Accidents Are Unique. You Need an Attorney With Experience Handling Truck Wreck Claims

Semi-truck accidents are different than most accidents. They take many months to settle and your lawyer will make a great investment with regard ot his or her time on your case. The fact that we offer our clients a contingency fee contract means that you won't be paying us large hourly rates. This is yet another attractive feature of our fee agreements.

Why are semi-trucks so dangerous?

Drowsy Truck Driver Statistics

  • Studies have shown that being awake for a long period of time (18 hours) will leave a driver with the motor reflexes of someone who has a BAC level of 0.08%, putting them at equal risk of crashing.
  • Commercial trucks account for a small percentage of registered vehicles on our roadways, yet account for an alarming number of passenger vehicle accidents that involve death. (According to a 1999 report by the NHTSA, large trucks accounted for 3% of the registered vehicles on our highways, however, they were responsible for 13% of passenger vehicle deaths.)
  • Fatigue and drowsy driving is said to be a contributing factor in as many as 30-40% of all commercial truck accidents.
  • A 1995 National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) study found that of 107 heavy truck crashes, fatigue was a prominent factor in 75% of the run-off-the-road crashes, with 68% of long-haul drivers and 49% of short haul drivers suffering fatigue-related crashes.
  • A commerical truck driver who skips mandated rest breaks and sleep, greatly increases the likelihood of their being involved in an accident due to drowsiness. Additionally, a truck driver's ability to gain proper restorative sleep is affected even if they try to "catch up" on sleep when they have a day off.
  • Australian research and on-site investigations over the last several years have determined that, overall, one crash in every five among truck drivers is due to falling asleep at the wheel and that up to 30% of truck crash fatalities on rural roads are due to sleep deprivation.
  • The risk of a crash effectively doubles from the eighth to the tenth hour of driving, and doubles again from the tenth to the eleventh hour of driving alone. (FMCSA, 2000).
