Truck Accident Cases Require Special Knowledge And Experience
You cannot overstate the destructive force a semi or other commercial truck has on passenger vehicles. When a vehicle that is so much larger and heavier is in an accident, it will cause extreme damage to a smaller vehicle. Not only does a large vehicle with a heavy load take longer to stop, it is also less able to turn or swerve to avoid a collision.
Unfortunately, these accidents typically cause catastrophic or fatal injuries, especially to the occupants of the passenger vehicle. If you or a family member have been in a truck accident, you need an experienced team of lawyers on your side as soon as possible.

Why Do Trucking Accidents Happen?
We often call in experts to investigate the accident scene and determine if the truck was unsafe or the truck driver was in violation of safety regulations. Some common causes of these accidents include:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Traffic violations on the part of the truck driver
- Drunk or distracted truck drivers
- Negligence on the part of the truck driver
- Poorly loaded or overloaded trucks
- Mechanical failure/defective equipment
- Poorly maintained trucks
Once we determine how the accident happened and who was at fault, we will begin crafting a case strategy for your unique accident claim. We stay current with the latest technology, allowing us to build cases efficiently and effectively.
