Understanding Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are often more complex than typical car accidents. They involve unique aspects that require an in-depth understanding of the law. For instance, in a commercial truck accident, multiple parties could be responsible for your injuries and damages, including:
The truck driver, if they were driving recklessly or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
The trucking company, if they failed to properly maintain their vehicles or exceeded federal regulations for hours of service
The truck manufacturer, if a defective part caused the accident
The cargo company, if the truck was overloaded or the cargo was not properly secured
Maintenance and repair companies, if they failed to properly maintain or repair the truck
Each of these parties may have played a part in the accident, and with my experience handling complex truck accident cases, I can help identify them and hold them accountable.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
In my years of experience as a personal injury attorney, I've seen firsthand the devastating impact of truck accidents. Understanding the common causes can help you make sense of what happened and who might be at fault:
Equipment failures often play a significant role in truck accidents. These can range from brake malfunctions to tire blowouts. If an equipment failure caused your accident, it's essential to identify who was responsible for maintaining the truck. Was it the driver, the trucking company, or a third-party service provider?
Faulty road designs or unfavorable weather conditions are another common cause of truck accidents. If a poorly-designed road or bad weather contributed to your accident, we may need to investigate whether any government agencies or contractors failed in their duties.
Driver errors, including speeding, unsafe lane changes, and rear-ending, are unfortunately all too common. Despite the strict regulations governing commercial truck drivers, some still choose to take unnecessary risks, putting innocent people in harm's way.
Fatigue or impairment due to drugs or alcohol is another serious issue in the trucking industry. Long hours on the road can lead to exhaustion, and some drivers turn to substances to stay awake. If a fatigued or impaired driver caused your accident, they and potentially their employer must be held accountable.
Remember, you're not alone in this journey. I'm here to help you hold the responsible parties accountable and advocate for the compensation you deserve. Let's work together to protect your future and the future of your loved ones after this traumatic event.
Compensation for Truck Accident Victims

lost income and benefits,
