Our Experience Makes The Difference After A Truck Accident

Truck accidents are some of the most dangerous and deadly types of motor vehicle accidents. While they may happen less often than other types of auto accidents, when they do happen, the results can include catastrophic injuries and death.

Some of the common injuries that can occur can include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Amputations
  • Internal injuries

The catastrophic nature of these injuries can mean that a person will need lifelong care. Covering the cost of that care when you may never be able to work again should not be your responsibility. Our experience helps us to hold truckers and trucking companies responsible for accidents they cause.

Driver Fatigue And Other Trucking Accident Causes

Trucking companies often pay by the mile. This gives drivers an incentive to stay on the road past the point where they can safely operate a vehicle that can weigh 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. Driver fatigue is a major cause of trucking accidents. Other causes include:

  • Speeding
  • Improper maintenance
  • Improper loading/unsecured load/shifting load
  • Drug/alcohol abuse
