Truck Accidents

Commercial truck drivers undergo hours of training before receiving the specialized licenses required to operate huge tractor trailers. The size and weight of these vehicles create a challenge in maneuverability and control. State laws regulating truck driving do little to prevent major commercial truck accidents from occurring.

Common causes of truck accidents include the following:

  • Inexperience
  • Dangerous weather conditions
  • Reckless driving
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Jackknifing
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Roll over truck accidents
  • Mechanical failures
  • Poorly maintained brakes
  • Unsafe backing
  • Overweight trucks
  • Under-loaded trucks

You need experienced legal representation

Large trucks known as semis, 18-wheelers, big rigs, or tractor trailers can present a special danger on the road. They are hauling loads that outweigh dozens of cars and can create devastating accidents. A smaller vehicle is no match for most trucks on the highway today, since many trucks weigh in excess of 80,000 pounds.  In addition, trucks often are loaded with all kinds of materials, many of which increase the force and destruction when an accident takes place.
