Semi Truck Accident

An accident between a commercial truck and a car can have life-threatening consequences due to the tremendous size difference. Even at low-speeds, a heavy 18-wheeler can do major damage to a smaller vehicle. Broken bones and death are the results of these collisions.

When you have been injured in a trucking accident you need the best. The best is here to help.

After a long battle with insurance companies on top of being in a wheelchair for months I finally called RJD. Best decision I have ever made! They take care of everything quickly and efficiently.

I was always treated with the upmost dignity and importance as if I was one of the most important clients they had. I was totally satisfied and will refer any of my friend and family when they are in the need of legal advice.

Causes of Truck Accidents

A minor mistake can lead to devastating consequences when it comes to commercial trucks. These vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds due to the equipment or goods they might be carrying. The common causes of personal injury cases from truck accidents come from:

Poor maintenance
If an accident occurs due to poor maintenance, a trucking company could face negligence charges. These vehicles must be adequately and frequently maintained since they are traveling thousands of miles at a time.
Fatigue and Driver Intoxication
Serious accidents can arise from situations where the driver may not be in a fully attentive state. These can include the driver being under the influence of alcohol or drugs or being sleep deprived. A severe accident is only a lane away, and in these cases, a trucking company can be held responsible for any injuries.
Going Over the Cargo Weight Limit
Semi-trucks are only designed to carry specific amounts of weight. If the weight is exceeded, it may become impossible for a truck to stop when attempting to brake, leading to severe injuries and devastating damages in case of an accident. The trucking company and manufacturers are responsible for making sure the limits aren’t exceeded.

Our truck accident lawyers at Robert J. Debry can determine who was at fault by investigating your accident. Any accident-related expenses will then be directed to the responsible party. We will do everything in our power to do so.
