Accidents involving tractor trailers, semi trucks, and other large commercial trucks can be the most devastating to drivers of smaller motor vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, please call our attorneys right away. Injuries can be severe, requiring surgery and physical therapy. Our commercial truck accident attorneys have the experience to make a strong claim.
Driver fatigue is a frequent cause of trucking accidents. The law limits the number of hours truck drivers can spend on the road without a break. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a dump truck, 18-wheeler, or another commercial vehicle, we will investigate this and other key factors of your case.
Other main causes of truck accidents include:
- Untrained or Unlicensed Driver
- Unsafe Passing
- Neglecting to Address Maintenance Issues
- Neglecting to Address Inspection
- Texting / Speaking on Cell Phone
- Gesturing to Other Drivers
- Drunk Driving
- Changing Lanes Too Abrubtly
