We Can Level The Playing Field And Hold Trucking Companies Accountable

Large industrial trucks and semis come in a variety of shapes and sizes and as you can imagine, the larger they are, the more catastrophic an accident would be at high rates of speed on the highway.

When a trucking accident happens, the trucking company wastes absolutely no time in launching its own investigation in an effort to avoid liability. While the trucking company is mounting its case, you or your loved one is focused on either recovering from injuries or, even worse, fighting for your life. It is important to have an experienced trucking accident attorney by your side, fighting for you while you focus on what is most important: your recovery.

Among the most common causes of truck-related accidents are:

  • Inadequate safety training
  • Inadequate pre-departure safety checks
  • Driver fatigue
  • Alcohol and/or substance abuse
  • Faulty equipment (i.e., brakes, tires, etc.)
  • Carrying cargo exceeding weight limits
  • Distractions within the cabin (e.g., texting and driving)
  • Excessive speeds to meet deadlines
  • Poor maintenance of the truck and/or trailer

If any of these factors is a cause or the cause of the accident you were involved in, it is important to discover this early on before the trucking company and insurance company look to shift the responsibility.
