Semi-Truck Accidents

Have you or someone you know been involved in a semi-truck accident? Being hit by a commercial vehicle sounds like a nightmare, but it’s a reality for 16% of drivers. Aside from the mounting medical bills and long-lasting injuries, you may develop a phobia of driving.
Your trauma deserves justice.

What You Need to Know

Semi-trucks have a black box recorder, similar to that of commercial airplanes. The data from their black box recorders can be overwritten before you have a chance to get the evidence you need.

Accidents are often due to the driver’s carelessness. Examples include:

  • Failure to yield
  • Use of truck equipment while driving
  • Speeding
  • Cellphone use
  • Red light or stop sign running
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Tailgating
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while tired

Drivers are subject to state and federal law to obey certain rules of the road and rules of long-distance driving.

Often these laws are not obeyed.

Your Rights

This isn’t your average accident. You won’t just be negotiating with a driver, but an entire enterprise. The trailer itself may have separate leasing companies. Trucking corporations can get rid of important evidence if you don’t have the right team working on your behalf. Time is of the essence.
