Trucking Accidents

Trucking Accidents

The consequences of a collision between a commercial truck and a passenger vehicle are usually devastating for the occupants of the smaller passenger vehicle, frequently involving serious injuries or fatalities. The drivers of commercial vehicles such as tractor trailers, dump trucks, and buses have increased responsibility due to the disparity of their size to other vehicles with whom they share the road.

Federal regulations set minimum standards for the operation of commercial vehicles and require companies to conduct routine inspections and maintenance on their vehicles in order to protect the public. Unfortunately, trucking companies and their drivers do not always adhere to these standards, which can lead to catastrophic injuries and even death. Victims need the expertise of a trucking attorney on their side.
