Why It's Important To Have A Lawyer On Your Side After A Truck Accident

Because of their size, weight and potential to cause harm, large commercial vehicles are heavily regulated — more so than cars, SUVs and pickup trucks. When a serious truck accident happens, often the cause is a safety violation, either by the truck driver, the trucking company or the truck or trailer manufacturer.

If a collision with a large truck has left you or a loved one with serious injuries, you need an attorney on your side to investigate the accident and determine exactly what went wrong. A police report may not indicate all the factors that led to the crash, and uncovering the facts is crucial when you need to prove trucking negligence and obtain the maximum available compensation.

Trucking companies have powerful insurance providers whose goal is to minimize the amount of compensation you receive. It is only fair that you have a skilled legal advocate on your side to level the playing field.

Common types of trucking industry violations include:

  • Hours-of-service violations, such as those resulting in truck driver fatigue
  • Unsafe loading of cargo
  • Poor truck or trailer maintenance
  • Failure to slow down in construction zones
  • Texting or other types of distracted driving
  • Falsification of truck drivers' logbooks
