Rapid City Truck Accident Attorney

Truck drivers and trucking companies have a special responsibility to maintain
safe driving standards for the protection of everyone on the road. Although
any type of motor vehicle accident can be damaging and deadly, the impressive
size and weight of semi-trucks make them especially hazardous. Semi-trucks
weigh in at an average of 80,000 pounds, and if they are improperly loaded
or carelessly driven they can cause a devastating accident.

Truck Accident Liability
Roughly 500,000 trucking accidents occur in the United States each year,
many of which end in serious injuries or even fatalities. If you were
involved in a truck accident you likely suffered serious damage, including
costly vehicle repairs or replacement as well as medical bills for any
injuries. Although insurance companies may pay for some of these costs,
they might not cover everything, which is why it is important to determine
liability. If you decide to pursue legal action against the truck driver
or company, it is crucial to know who was to blame for the accident.
Common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Untrained or inadequately trained drivers
- Careless or negligent driving
- Excessive cargo weight, incorrectly loaded cargo, or unsecured cargo
- Improper truck maintenance
- Faulty truck part
- Failure to follow trucking laws
