It is hard to imagine a more dangerous car accident than one involving an 18-wheeler.

Truck drivers are on the road for hours at a time. They have to pay close attention to the road and their trucks at all times, because so much can go wrong with an 18-wheeler. One small mishap can result in a serious accident. If you were in a truck wreck, there is a good chance you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. We can help you protect your rights, whether your accident was caused by:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Equipment Failure 
  • Jackknifing 
  • Driver Impairment 
  • Tire Failure 
  • Overload 
  • Disconnected Breaks

Federal and State Regulations for Semis

There are both federal and state regulations that apply to all truck drivers. These regulations are in place to prevent truck wrecks, which are often the result of negligent actions such as driver fatigue and poorly maintained equipment. All drivers are required to keep a trucking log, which keeps track of their hours on the road. State laws vary, but they are in place to protect against similar mistakes.

Wrongful Death Trucking Accidents

Have you lost a loved one in a truck wreck? Because of the disparity between tractor trailers and most road vehicles, accidents involving wrongful death are unfortunately all too common. You cannot put a price on the loss of your loved one, but your family may now have serious financial concerns. We can help you receive the financial considerations you deserve.

Driver Negligence

The following are examples of truck driver negligence that may lead to a serious 18-wheeler or tractor trailer accident:
  • Speeding
  • Drinking and driving 
  • Driving too many hours resulting in driver fatigue 
  • Driver inattention (talking on the phone, adjusting the radio, texting, smoking, eating, etc.) 
  • Other driver negligence

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate trucking companies are responsible for the negligent actions of their employees. Therefore, if a truck driver was speeding or driving carelessly in the course of employment and that negligence resulted in a serious crash, the truck company will be held liable. There are many other forms of corporate negligence that may contribute to a truck wreck, including:
  • Negligent hiring practices (hiring people with a criminal history, history of drug or alcohol abuse or poor driving history)
  • Inadequate training 
  • Violation of safety regulations 
  • Failure to monitor repair and maintenance history 
  • Improper loading
