Truck Accident Causes
Truck accidents are often caused by the same factors that cause car, motorcycle, and other types of motor vehicle accidents, including driver inattentiveness and recklessness. However, truck accidents can also be caused by other unique factors, such as cargo that is not properly loaded or drivers who are not properly qualified or trained. Trucking companies are also responsible for making sure that drivers follow all laws and regulations regarding the duration and frequency of breaks so that they remain alert while operating their vehicles. Our truck accident attorneys have the skill and experience that is necessary to determine accident causes and to build a successful case against the parties who are at fault.

Truck Accident Results
Due to the sheer size and weight of most semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, the results from accidents involving these types of vehicles are often catastrophic. According to 2007 statistics from the US Department of Transportation, accidents that involve large trucks have a higher fatal crash rate than accidents that involve only cars, based on the number of fatal crashes per 100 million miles traveled. In addition, many Americans suffer serious and debilitating injuries each year from semi-truck and tractor-trailer accidents, including brain and spinal cord injuries that require continuous and permanent medical care.
If you have been injured or have suffered the death of a loved one in a truck accident, our attorneys will help you pursue justice against the responsible parties. Our truck accident lawyers have obtained millions of dollars in settlements for victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases, and we can help ensure that your case reaches the most favorable outcome possible. Although no amount of money can take the place of a loved one or substitute for good health, a significant financial settlement can help ensure that you and your family’s financial needs are met, both now and in the future.
