There are more than 3,000 death and more than 30,000 injuries resulting from accidents involving
semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles every year. It takes experience and resources to
maximize recovery for your clients from a major trucking corporation. Most trucking accidents
are caused by factors such as:
- Rear-End, Head-On Crashes and Jackknives
- Poor Maintenance, Including Tires and Brakes
- Driver Fatigue
- Unsecured Loads
- Aggressive Driving
- DWI / Drug Use
- Lack of Reflectors and Poor Visibility
Too often trucking companies hire inexperienced and unqualified operators that
are dangerous to the driving public. Even qualified truck drivers get fatigued
by the long hours and many thousands of miles required by most trucking companies.
These companies must be held accountable when they cut corners on training, maintenance,
and safety.Countless automobile drivers are injured or killed each year when truck
drivers are negligent or their equipment fails.
Safety equipment, such as under-ride guards designed to protect smaller vehicles in
the event of a rear-end collision with a semi-truck, must be robust and maintained
properly to adequately protect the driving public. Reflectors and proper lighting
are important to these trucks for the protection of the motoring public.
