Accidents involving 18 wheelers and commercial trucks rarely result in minor damages. In fact, all too often, 18-wheeler accidents leave victims with traumatic personal injuries, or worse. An extremely large percentage of these accidents are caused by something that could have been prevented, including:
• Negligence or fatigue
• Improperly secured loads
• Substance abuse
The moment an accident occurs, a flurry of events follow, including the involvement of insurance companies, trucking corporations and more, all the while you or your loved ones are reeling from an injury caused by this unexpected and catastrophic event. Ensuring that you are protected and well represented following a trucking accident with injury requires the expertise of an attorney who specializes in this specific type of litigation.
Commercial trucking and 18-wheeler accidents are unlike other accidents. Firstly, the results are usually far more damaging. However, there are also other unique aspects to consider, including specific commercial trucking laws, log books, accessing electronic control modules and more.
