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
If you were wrongfully injured in a trucking accident, our attorneys can sit down with you to evaluate the circumstances of your case and determine potential liability. We can also help gather applicable evidence, help file insurance claims, and deal with any further legal documents and proceedings.
