Truck Crash Attorney

A truck crash may sound like an inevitable part of life on the roadways of America, but that is far from the truth. There are over 500,000 truck accidents every year. But they are caused by a number of reasons. First, a truck crash is often caused by illegal and often unsignaled moves by a passenger car that a large truck cannot respond to quickly enough. Most small vehicle drivers don't realize that it takes an 80,000 pound truck at least three times as long to stop or turn as it does a passenger car. On the highways, that may mean a traffic accident. In addition, a truck driver can be guilty of driving too many hours without a sufficient amount of rest. Not only is that illegal, but that drowsiness can cause a truck accident. If you are the victim, you should contact a truck crash attorney to investigate and determine if you are due compensation.

Fast Facts

  • Each trucking accident that involves at least one injury costs over $200,000.
  • A truck can jackknife when they have to respond quickly to a stop or turn by a small passenger car.
