Truck Accident Lawyer: Every day, there are thousands of trucks driving across the roadways of the United States. Tractor-trailers cruise down interstate highways, while delivery vans bring packages to the doorsteps of our homes and local businesses. Cement mixing trucks deliver concrete mix to construction sites, while tanker trucks deliver the fuel to local service stations.
Trucks are large, powerful, vehicles that are built to transport large payloads and arrive at their destinations on time. We share the roads with these trucks, and we want to do so with the assurance that they are operated in a manner that makes our safety a top priority.
Unfortunately, accidents involving large trucks and company vehicles happen. Drivers can misjudge distances in emergency circumstances. Mechanical equipment and safety devices can fail. In other situations, trucking companies become complacent with safety protocol. Worse yet, proper safety measures may be cut to save on cost or drivers may not be properly trained in adequate safety measures. In any of these examples, both a trucking company and its drivers may be negligent if their lack of safety results in an accident.
Every day, many are injured or killed because of accidents involving large commercial trucks and company vehicles. Lives are changed forever, and families are forced to cope with the consequences.
Truck accidents can occur at any place and time. They may involve occupants of other passenger vehicles or pedestrians. They can take place on busy interstates or small rural roads. The types of truck accident cases depend upon the type of truck involved in the accident, the action or inaction of the truck driver in the accident, environmental conditions at the time of the accident, and the sequence of events before, during, and after the crash.
