An accident involving a tractor trailer or commercial vehicle can change your life in an instant.
Crashes involving these large, heavy vehicles are frequently catastrophic and sometimes fatal. And, unlike auto accidents between individuals, commercial cases involve fighting within a complicated and highly regulated industry.
Commercial vehicle wrecks typically happen for three reasons:
Inappropriate Driver Behavior
Common driver-related accidents involve the use of drugs or alcohol, driver fatigue, driver inattention, or a lack of training or experience.
Companies may contribute to wrecks by hiring the wrong people, not testing drivers for drugs or alcohol, not giving drivers required medical exams, improper driver training and supervision, or lack of safety rule enforcement.
Faulty equipment including worn tires and brakes, steering or transmission problems, inadequate safety lighting, and improper load balancing or cargo restraints can lead to serious accidents.
Trucking companies are responsible for following federal and state regulations and for hiring safe drivers who follow the rules. When companies and/or their drivers neglect to follow the rules and members of the public are seriously injured or killed, we must hold the company responsible for their recklessness.
When a wreck involving a tractor trailer or a commercial vehicle happens, the company’s investigators and insurance adjusters immediately begin investigating the case. They may even contact you directly. Do not communicate with them. They are looking out for the company – not for you.
