Comprehensive legal resources for all types of truck and trailer accidents
Large trucks and commercial vehicles weigh tens of thousands of pounds and pose significant dangers to other vehicles and drivers if handled negligently or improperly maintained. The most common types of truck accidents include:
• Jackknifed truck and tractor-trailers
• Tire blowouts
• Override accidents where a smaller vehicle goes under the bed of the truck
• Hazardous materials accidents
• Crashes involving construction, flatbed and garbage trucks
Large trucks are particularly susceptible to accidents involving:
• Brake failure on inclines and declines
• Rollover crashes
• Wide-turn blindspots
• Illegal land changes
• Improperly restrained and shifting cargo
Injuries sustained during accidents involving trucks are often severe and impact our personal and professional life. You may be able to recover from the at-fault driver and a negligent trucking company for maximum damages.
Trucks, trailers and commercial vehicles are subject to additional regulations and laws
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for regulating and monitoring truck safety and maintenance. Commercial truck drivers are also required to undergo additional driving education and obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). There are strict requirements for how much weight a truck can carry and drivers are required to log driving hours and take breaks for specified periods of time. Trucks must also be properly maintained to reduce the risk of tire malfunctions and engine problems that lead to accidents. Our experienced trucking accident attorneys gather evidence and witness statements and work collaboratively with experts in accident reconstruction to develop an innovative legal strategy that supports your claims.
