Tractor-Trailer Accidents: What To Know
Accidents involving semi-trucks are among the most severe of all motor vehicle accidents. The size and weight of these trucks frequently cause catastrophic personal injuries such as spinal cord damage, amputation or traumatic brain injuries. Some of the most common causes of tractor-trailer accidents include:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Truck driver fatigue
- Improper truck maintenance
- Inadequate truck driver training
- Vehicle malfunction
- Improper cargo loading
Trucking companies employ powerful attorneys to defend them from liability. Their insurance companies will also do everything possible to minimize your claim and avoid paying a settlement. To stand up to them, you will need semi-truck accident lawyers who have experience and a positive reputation for getting results.
What If My Accident Happened Out Of State?
Many commercial truck accidents occur outside of the state where you live or where your employer is located. This adds numerous legal complications, including determining the jurisdiction and complying with the regulations of more than one state. Fortunately, our team of trucking accident attorneys are used to handling complex out-of-state accidents in two or more states such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and Maryland.
