Car accidents can often be serious and even fatal, but a large truck can cause even more damage. An eighteen-wheeler, dump truck or tanker poses a major threat as they travel down the highways. There is the severity of the impact with the vehicle, which can destroy a small car. Then, there is the concern about what they may be hauling, including explosives and chemicals.

Truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other drivers. They must pass a specific test to get a special license saying they are capable of handling these deadly vehicles. Companies that hire these drivers must also be sure they are selecting people who will be alert and cautious when driving under the name of the company. If an accident occurs due to the negligence of the driver, they should be held liable for failing to meet the required standards.

The victim of such an accident can receive serious and life-changing injuries. They may be unable to work again or even to perform many normal functions in their daily life. When this occurs, the responsible party should pay for the expenses the victim has incurred. A personal injury lawsuit can provide the compensation they need to pay for medical care and to help them to pay their bills in spite of lost income. It is important to seek legal advice in this situation to determine if you are eligible for compensation for your damages.

Our commerce flows, in large part, on 18-weelers, commercial box trucks, tractor trailers, gas tanker trucks, and the like. They transport our goods and are indispensable to our society. However, they also pose the risk of grave danger, which is why their drivers are held to a higher standard of safety than other motorists and why trucking companies and truck manufacturers must comply with important safety rules.

An 18-wheeler has passed you on the highway. You know its sound. In fact, you know how it feels—that all too familiar moment of pressure as it roars past you…without so much as touching your vehicle.

Now imagine one actually hitting your car. The average 18-wheeler is up to 20 times heavier and many times larger than the average car. These, among other disparities, are vast and begin to explain the magnitude of the injuries that result when big rigs collide with significantly smaller cars—amputations, burns, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, and death. Unfortunately, these horrors are a reality in the everyday hum of American traffic.

Why? Because truck drivers make dangerous decisions—they fail to inspect, drive too fast, make unsafe turns, fail to brake, talk or text on their phones, drive while under the influence, and drive while sleep-deprived, among other dangerous decisions.

Catastrophic trucking collisions also happen because trucking companies make dangerous decisions—they fail to train their drivers, overwork their drivers, fail to check their drivers’ backgrounds, and fail to maintain their trucks, among other dangerous decisions.

Catastrophic trucking collisions also result when commercial truck manufacturers make dangerous decisions while designing, manufacturing, marketing or distributing their trucks and their many components.

Dangerous decisions—by truck drivers, trucking companies, or trucking manufacturers—are not acceptable. Our attorneys fight for victims of trucking collisions and fight to hold negligent truckers, their companies, and commercial truck manufacturers accountable
