Why Hire a Commercial Truck Accident Lawyer?
If you or a loved one was harmed in a crash with an 18-wheeler, the stakes are high. You may be facing mounting medical bills, physical pain and emotional suffering, and you may not be sure what the future holds. The insurance company representing the at-fault commercial vehicle has a team of people working to make sure they pay out as little as possible to the injured – you. While you are working to recover from the accident, an insurance representative is building a case that minimizes their employer’s responsibility for the crash. They may deny fault, minimize the severity of your injuries, or offer only the smallest sum to make the claim go away.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Safe miles logged can be a source of pride for 18 wheeler truck drivers. The work of 18 wheelers are responsible for moving the commercial goods we rely on each day from the manufacturing facility to our homes.
Unfortunately, some companies put profit over safety. Trucking companies employ drivers with known history of driving under the influence. Others fail to properly maintain the vehicles – putting drivers and other road users at harms way of vehicle failure. In a famous Austin crash, a gravel truck’s brake failure caused severe injury to a McMinn Law Firm client.
Drivers too tired to operate a vehicle too often still get behind the wheel. Operating a vehicle as large as an 18 wheeler takes a great deal of attention.
- Fatigued driving
- Overloaded or improperly loaded vehicles
- Driving under the influence
- Brake failure
- Distracted driving
