Our team of injury lawyers is prepared to investigate and gather the appropriate evidence to negotiate a fair settlement for those wrongfully injured due to negligence in a trucking accident.
Some of the nationwide cases we have handled include:
- Tractor Trailer vs Tractor Trailer wreck involving a nationwide truck line. The Arkansas semi-truck collision involved an inadequately trained driver. The driver most likely fell asleep crossing the median striking our client’s tractor-trailer, the wreck caused serious injury and death.
- Commercial vehicle vs Pedestrian: This North Carolina wreck was caused when our client’s tractor-trailer broke down on the interstate and the driver of a commercial vehicle who was not paying attention struck the disabled tractor-trailer, which in turn struck our client.
- Tractor Trailer rear-end collision in West Texas: This Odessa Truck wreck occurred when the driver of a Tractor-trailer used in the oil business was not paying attention and crashed into our clients who were stopped for congested traffic.
- Tractor Trailer Collision I-40 near Asheville North Carolina: this tractor-trailer collision occurred when the driver of a Semi-Truck failed to observe the speed and lane requirements in the mountains of North Carolina. This reckless conduct resulted in a collision injuring multiple parties.
As with other types of traffic accidents, crashes involving commercial trucks are not random occurrences, but overwhelmingly the result of human error. Under pressure to meet strict deadlines, many truckers drive long hours without enough rest. They may be fatigued, inattentive, or under the influence of drugs. Large trucks are also more susceptible to vehicle-related crash causes, such as defective brakes or tires.
Truck accident law is complex and difficult to navigate because numerous state and federal laws govern the trucking industry. In addition, drivers and companies are represented by big insurance providers and powerful legal teams whose goal is to minimize or deny your claim, even if you were not responsible for the crash.
