Trucking - Catastrophic Automotive Accidents
Knowledgeable Truck Accident Lawyer
As more and more large trucks have entered United States roadways, trucking accidents are becoming a growing concern for everyone on the road. Often weighing more than 10,000 pounds, a truck involved in an accident at any speed can be catastrophic. If you or someone close to you has been injured in a commercial trucking accident, you should not hesitate to hire a personal injury attorney who can protect your interests effectively and aggressively.
Common reasons large trucks are involved in accidents include:
- Excessive speed
- Driver fatigue
- Cell phone usage
- Drugs and / or alcohol usage
- Improper turns
- Unlicensed / untrained drivers
- Failure to recognize stopping distances
- Improperly loaded or maintained trucks
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
A truck or tractor-trailer accident is not the same as an automobile accident. The investigation and legal issues are far more complex, time sensitive, and demanding. This is partly due to the fact that a number of strict federal rules come into play in commercial truck accident cases. These rules - which include mandatory training, licensing, and rest breaks for truck drivers - are designed to regulate truck drivers and the companies that employ them in order to protect the drivers and passengers of standard vehicles. Failure to observe federal trucking regulations could have catastrophic results.
