When an 18-wheeler truck is involved in an accident, the damage is likely to be substantial because of the vehicle’s mass.
There are many factors that play into the cause of a truck accident. Some common causes of truck accidents include:
Exhausted drivers transporting unsafe or improperly loaded cargo
Failure to maintain the truck
Driving under the influence of drugs
No matter the cause of the accident you were involved in with a truck, we will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to pursue a case against the responsible party.
Because every case is different, there is no one-size-fits-all formula for determining who was at fault or who is at least partially responsible. In some cases, both drivers and the trucking company are to blame for the crash; in others, the truck driver alone is responsible. Even truck manufacturers, dealers and outside parties could be at fault for the accident.
Trucking accidents are much more complex than passenger car accidents, and injured victims should seek help from a personal injury attorney.
