Truck Accident Litigation

Timothy C. Nies

Christian Van Riper

"We leave no stone unturned when prosecuting negligent truckers..."

Van Riper & Nies Attorneys combine hard work, courtroom experience and compassion to bring a unique perspective as we fight for justice for our clients.

Our attorneys, Timothy Nies, a former U.S. Army Ranger, and a former insurance defense trial attorney for the largest insurance defense firm in the U.S., and Christian Van Riper, a former DUI prosecutor, are experienced and skilled in the prosecution of serious truck accident claims. We are known for leaving no stone unturned in the prosecution of negligent truckers and their trucking companies.

For years, our attorney, Timothy Nies, worked as a senior casualty attorney for the largest auto insurance companies in the U.S. before deciding to help victims of the negligence and carelessness of others. He knows the insurance companies' tactics, and will use this knowledge to his clients' advantage when litigating cases involving trucks.

Our attorneys work quickly with accident reconstruction experts and investigators to inspect the scene of the crash and the vehicles to obtain and preserve important evidence as well as to take statements from key witnesses.

The investigation of the crash also involves a review of documents, such as driver’s logs, mandatory sleep logs of drivers, maintenance records, and the personnel records of the trucker. Oftentimes review of such documents indicates violations of federal and state trucking violations.

Truckers break federal and state trucking laws by:

-       Driving too fast,

-       Driving while tired,

-       Driving too many hours,

-       Driving while impaired,

-       Driving too closely to vehicles to their front,

-       Driving with trucks improperly loaded,

-       Driving on tires that should be replaced,

-       Driving overloaded trucks.

We take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we front the costs of the litigation. Our fees are paid out of the settlement or trial award.
