We have seen the same types of negligence cause numerous truck crashes. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver inattention
  • Following too closely
  • Improper training
  • Speeding
  • Improper lane change
  • Use of drugs or alcohol
  • Improper maintenance
  • Improper loading
  • Driver fatigue
  • Failure to comply with federal regulations
  • Defective brakes
  • Bad tires
  • Wide turns
  • Defective roadways
  • Driving in unsafe conditions
  • Failure to check driving records

We understand the physics of truck accidents. Large trucks have long stopping distances. If something goes wrong when an 80,000-pound truck is tailgating behind a 3,000-pound car or SUV, the people in the passenger vehicle are going to pay the price.

Our attorneys know how to investigate a truck accident, how to identify all possible sources of liability and how to build a solid case. We have won millions of dollars in financial compensation for our truck accident victims.
