Truck and Tractor Trailer Accidents
Truck and Tractor Trailer Accident Injury Lawyers
Because of their size and speed, trucks and tractor trailers have the potential to cause extreme amounts of damage in collisions with other motor vehicles. Trucking accidents can be more complex than car accidents because federal and state laws apply. If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a truck or tractor trailer accident, it is quite beneficial to have an experienced truck accident lawyer at your side.
Causes of Truck Accidents
The attorneys at DeCarlis & Sawyer will investigate the accident thoroughly, and will work alongside accident re-constructionists and engineers to determine the speed of the truck, and if timely brake application could have prevented the accident. There can be many factors that contribute to a truck accident, but some of the most common ones are:
- Drowsy drivers
- Blind spots
- Overloaded cargo
- Unsecured cargo
No matter the cause of the truck or tractor trailer accident, if it was due to negligence, then you could be entitled to significant compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. There are many rules and regulations truck companies must follow when it comes to the hiring practices and driving time limits–drivers can only be on the road for a certain number of hours in a given time period. If any ignored regulations contributed to the cause of the truck accident, then we will hold the driver and the truck company responsible for any injuries and damages that may have occurred.
