Trucking accidents are governed by federal regulations, so don't settle for a lawyer with regular car accident case experience. At Handy & Handy, our attorneys have experience with all of the federal and state regulations regarding truck accidents.
Causes Of Truck Accidents
Semitractor-trailer accidents have the ability to cause serious harm and even death to individuals who use our roads. Some common dangers associated with semitractor-trailers involve:
- Blind spots
- Wide turns
- Stopping distance
- Fatigued drivers
- Improper maintenance of trucks
These issues pose significant risks, and can cause severe and fatal accidents.
Truck accidents should not be treated like an ordinary car accident. Fault can lie with more than just the driver. Often, various parties can be sued in order to achieve the best outcome for our clients. For example, some of the liable parties may include the truck driver, the truck driver's employer, trailer owner, the shipper or the manufacturer of the defective product.
