Legal Representation for Truck Accident Victims

If you have been in a truck accident, you should know the following:

Types of Truck Accident Cases We Handle

Here are some of the types of truck accidents where we can represent you:

Speeding and traffic violations

Truck collisions can be the result of speeding, failing to obey traffic signals, improper lane changes, and more. Truckers are subject to the rules of the road. When a traffic infraction causes an accident, victims may have a legal claim.

Inadequate driving training

Driving a truck is a serious activity. When the person isn’t trained properly, it can be a dangerous activity. As your lawyer, we investigate whether poor driver training contributed to the crash.

Negligent hiring or supervision

Companies involved in commercial trucking should hire drivers that are qualified. When there are signs that a driver poses a danger, they should be retrained or removed. We investigate employee performance records to see if the trucking company adequately screened and monitored the driver.

Unsecured load

Trucks are in the business of transporting goods and materials. These loads must be secured for safe travel. When a load falls from a vehicle or a vehicle becomes uncontrollable because of shifting, the result may be injuries to victims.

Failing to follow USDOT regulations

The trucking industry is heavily regulated. U.S. Department of Transportation regulations create minimum requirements for drivers and commercial trucking operations. When these regulations are not followed, a collision may occur.

Drunk driving, driving under the influence

A truck driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a hazard to themselves and others. Victims may suffer life-changing injury as a result.

Distracted driving, inadequate sleep

Truck drivers are often under pressure to drive for long hours. They may be complacent and drive distracted. When these behaviors cause a crash, victims may claim damages.

Other causes and factors

Truck accidents often require investigation. Whatever the circumstances, we look at the evidence of the crash, work with reconstruction experts and talk to witnesses as we build your case for compensation.
