Trucking Accidents

CAN HAVE SEVERE CONSEQUENCES

Semi-trucks usually carry a lot of automobile insurance because they can cause devastating injuries or death. Semi-truck companies hire aggressive attorneys to try to limit your rightful recovery. Our attorneys have almost 60 years of experience handling these crashes and know the correct way to investigate such accidents, know what experts to hire and how to litigate these cases to maximize your recovery.

What are some causes for trucking accidents?

Two of the major causes of truck accidents are truck braking capability and truck driver fatigue. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, 30 to 40% of semi-truck related accidents are the result of driver fatigue. Federal law limits the number of hours that commercial truck drivers engaged in interstate commerce can drive a tractor-trailer each week, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety administration, which oversees the commercial truck industry, has established rules requiring electronic logging devices in large trucks to help reduce drowsy driving. Additionally, the weight of trucks is a factor in many accidents. Loaded tractor trailers, for example, take 20-40 times longer to come to halt than a car. Less than ideal road conditions or poor break maintenance can make it even more difficult for a large truck to stop in time.

Why do I need to hire a personal injury attorney after a trucking accident?

Trucking accidents have many legal complexities, and our personal injury attorneys can help you navigate a truck accident claim.
