Have you been involved in a Commercial Trucking Accident or Train Accident?

Federal and state trucking regulations have been set forth to help ensure that semi-truck driver who takes to our roads, do so in the safest possible manner. When drivers skip important safety measures and find workarounds to necessary regulations, such as driving impaired by fatigue or even alcohol and/or drug use, very serious accidents can occur.  

When a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, or semi is involved with any collision with most any other vehicle on the road, catastrophic injuries or fatal accidents can occur. This causes a ripple effect of damages and potential financial hardships to victims and their families.  If you or a family member has been involved in such an accident, the right and fitting thing to do is to speak with an attorney to discuss the pursuit of compensation for damages.

Types Of Commercial Trucking Accident

The devastating impact that can occur with the size and speed of these trucks is enormous. Here are a few of the common types of accidents that occur when drivers are negligent, poorly trained, fatigued, alcohol-impaired, or lose control in a fit of road rage:

  • Blind Spots Accidents
  • Jackknife Collisions
  • Side-Impact Collisions
  • Air Brake Malfunctions
  • Rear-End Collisions
  • Head-on Collisions
  • Rollovers
  • Tire blowouts
  • Under-ride accidents
  • Loss of trailers or loads
  • Hazardous material (Hazmat) spill

Driver Safety and Liability

Proper vehicle maintenance and adherence to safety measures can save lives. When a driver ignores those things and accidents do occur, there may be several parties that share in liability.  Some of those causes could include:

  • Companies have rigid, unrealistic deadlines for drivers.
  • Truck drivers may become fatigued from driving for long hours.
  • Companies put drivers behind the wheel with insufficient background and training
  • The trucks lose control due to having exceeded legal maximum capacities.
  • Safety inspections are bypassed and ignored.
  • Faulty breaks and other vital equipment are not properly maintained.
