COMMON REASONS FOR TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

A large number of trucking accidents occur because the driver  has worked more hours consecutively than is allowed by law. This causes drivers to be fatigued and makes the safe operation of the vehicle much more difficult. 

Additionally, we see a lot of accidents occur due to improperly secured loads, insufficient maintenance on the truck/trailer, and insufficient driver training. 

When a tractor-trailer is involved in collision the injuries are almost always severe. 18-Wheelers weights can range between 35,000 pounds all the way up to 80,000 pounds

How is a trucking accident different from a normal car wreck

Truck drivers and trucking companies are federally regulated and have to meet a number of additional requirements that your average driver does not. These regulations and requirements can make 18-Wheeler cases more complex and demanding to litigate. You need an attorney familiar when trucking litigation on your side.

Should I consult an attorney about my tractor trailer accident?

 

Yes, hiring an attorney familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations is important in tractor-trailer accidents. An experienced trucking attorney can identify different safety regulations and DOT standards that the truck driver or trucking company may have violated. Additionally, an experienced trucking litigation attorney will have experts to consult to help prove your claim including accident reconstructionist and data analysis experts to download information from the actual 18-Wheeler regarding the speed, braking distance and other relevant accident factors.
