Trucking accidents are those that involve large trucks, commonly referred to as “semi-trucks”, “big rigs” or “18-wheelers.” These large trucks travel at high rates of speed down the highways and interstates in our Country and owe a heightened duty and responsibility to drive safe and watch out for other drivers on the road. Trucking accidents can lead to deaths and severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries and spinal cord injuries. There are many variables to why trucking accidents occur, including bad weather, excessive speed, distracted driving, reckless and careless driving, adverse road conditions and defective products including tires, airbags, brakes or drive mechanisms. Truck drivers are required to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) and there is a myriad of complex federal and state laws and regulations that govern truck drivers and the commercial trucking industry. Truck drivers usually are contracted by a company separate from the owner of the truck and/or the trailers they are hauling.
In most instances, it takes considerable time, expertise and money to piece together how and why accidents like this occur. Victims and witnesses may not be able to remember, and witnesses usually say that it all happened too fast to be sure of the sequence of events.
