Trucking Accidents

Crashes involving commercial trucks or “18 Wheelers” are often some of the most devastating and must be properly investigated. Commercial vehicles often contain a lot of digital data that must be preserved, inspected and stored correctly to protect your case. Also, commercial drivers have regulations that require them to adhere to strict rules, before and after the crash. Be sure to hire an attorney who knows how to gather and protect this valuable information.
Driving a truck can be a stressful job full of long driving hours and tight deadlines. Sometimes these factors can lead to a driver engaging in activities that can put others in danger. This can include:

  • Overloaded cargo
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Inadequate training and supervision
  • Defective equipment
