Truck Accidents

Semi-Truck Accident Cases

One out of every 9 fatal accidents on our highways involve a semi-truck.

Truck drivers are under constant pressure to meet time deadlines from their employers, and in a business where time is money, a driver's lack of adequate rest may lead to sleep deprivation. A truck driver that falls asleep at the wheel for just seconds can cause fatal injuries. Drowsy driving is an on-going problem among the trucking community, and it's yet another reason for drivers to be on constant alert while in the presence of large trucks.

For the most part truck accident injuries are similar to car accident injuries, except for one major difference. Due to the size difference between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, severe injuries and fatalities are more likely to occur in truck collisions.

Truck accident litigation is usually more complex than individuals in a passenger car accident. Truck related accidents often involve commercial insurance, truck mechanics, and federal trucking regulations as well.
