Accidents involving semi trucks are often devastating, even at low speeds. The sheer size of these vehicles makes it extremely important that truck drivers and trucking companies do everything they can to operate the trucks safely. Unfortunately, safety is sometimes pushed to the side in favor of getting deliveries done quickly, and serious accidents can be the result.

What Makes Truck Accidents Different?
On the surface, truck accidents may appear to be very similar to car accidents. In truth, there are major differences between car accidents and truck accidents. The first difference is simply the size of the trucks. Secondly, trucking companies and their insurers are very experienced in dealing with truck accidents. They are skilled investigators and litigators, and they work hard to minimize your injuries. Our lawyers are here to level the playing field.
There are many additional factors involved in truck accident cases that need to be considered when building a personal injury case, including the many possible causes of the accident. With more than 70 years of combined experience, our attorneys are deeply familiar with these possibilities, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Falsified log books showing that the driver had spent less time on the road than he or she really had
- Improper truck maintenance
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Lack of driver training
- Negligent hiring by the trucking company
