A head-on crash or other collision with a big 18-wheeler is no joke. The injuries can be serious and catastrophic, including brain injury, head injuries, hip injuries, massive trauma and wrongful death. Don’t wait to get an attorney to fight for you.
Our lawyers have experience in handling all types of semitruck accident situations:
- Overloaded trucks and falling debris: Trucks that are overloaded with cargo and cargo that may have been loaded so that it is not balanced are at risk of causing accidents. Not only can they be involved in collisions, but any falling cargo is also a hazard to passing motorists.
- Garbage truck accidents: Though garbage trucks are out doing their daily routines, they are often not paying attention to the cars around them as they pick up trash. This can lead to serious garbage truck collisions with other vehicles. Garbage falling off of vehicles can also create a dangerous situation for other drivers on the road.
- Truck driver negligence: Just like any other driver, truck drivers are responsible for the safe operation of their vehicles. If they are speeding, driving recklessly, driving while fatigued or otherwise carelessly operating the truck, their driver negligence can cause serious accidents and injuries.
