COMMON CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS
While there are many safety measures in place to prevent truck accidents, other contributing factors can still lead to a serious accident with a car. Drivers who are exhausted, trucks that require maintenance, faulty trailers, severe weather conditions, or distracted drivers can all contribute to a truck accident.
COMMERCIAL VEHICLE STATISTICS
Over 500,000 truck accidents occur every year in the U.S. These commercial vehicle accidents account for a disproportionate amount of injuries and deaths. One eighth of all traffic fatalities involve a trucking collision, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER AFTER A TRUCK ACCIDENT?

The process is lengthy and saturated with pitfalls that can hurt your claim for compensation. Not only are we an experienced team of truck accident attorneys, we know how to avoid the roadblocks that can hinder your case. Studies have shown that injury victims receive consistently larger settlement amounts when they hire an attorney than when they represent themselves.
