Causes of 18 Wheeler accidents

Over the years, our attorneys have handled trucking accidents across the State. The accidents can be caused by a number of factors. In all cases, there needs to be an investigation conducted by experienced individuals. When investigating a semi-truck accident, it is important to get the right information for the case:

Could the company be negligent in the hiring and training the driver?
Does the company have safety policies and training policies?
Could the driver have been fatigued?
Has the driver had prior accidents, speeding tickets or DUI charges?
Was the driver intoxicated or under the influence of drugs while driving?
Was the accident a result of an unsafe load, unbalanced load?
Was the truck properly maintained by the driver and or company?
Are there logbook requirements with the company?
Are the driver logs falsified?
Were defective tires or other defective equipment responsible for the accident?

Our law firm will get to the bottom of those questions, in order to obtain the best possible award for our clients. Most likely, if a heavy truck (18-wheeler, semi, tractor-trailer) crashes into a car, SUV, or motorcycle, the injuries are nearly always fatal, and the victims will suffer lifelong injuries (including paraplegia and quadriplegia), brain injuries, or even amputations.

Too often, the injured victims never recover and need substantial resources to get their lives back in order. Our goal is to cover the expenses which include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, future medical care, attendant care, job retraining, and pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an 18-wheeler accident, make sure you have a truck accident attorney with the experience in handling truck accident investigations and insurance claims.
