Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents

When commercial trucks — tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, box trucks, etc. — are involved in an accident, the damage is likely to be substantial because of the truck’s mass. A truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, in comparison to an average passenger car’s weight of 3,000 to 5,000 pounds. Injuries from truck accidents are often very serious and long-lasting. Because of this, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has maximum hours-of-service limits on drivers of these vehicles to help reduce driver fatigue. Additionally, the FMCSA also requires regular inspections of trucks to help limit maintenance problems in an effort to reduce collisions involving these dangerous vehicles.

Some of the top mistakes that can lead to a truck accident include:

We can help

At Pushchak & Dible law firm, we review log books, accident & witness reports, the truck’s Event Data Recorder (EDR or “black box”), and other evidence to investigate who was negligent in your accident. If a safety rule was broken, or the CDL driver was negligent, truckers can be held personally responsible. Additionally, if a trucking company failed to establish or enforce reasonable policies to protect safety, they may also be held accountable for the accident, as their driver is considered to be acting on the company’s behalf.

Compensation after a Truck Accident may include:

If you or a loved one was injured in a truck related accident, we can help you pursue a claim against the truck driver, the trucking company, or both. Our knowledgeable and dedicated attorneys are here to help you determine the best course of action to take.
