truck-accidentTrucking accidents involving large commercial trucks, such as an 18-wheeler or semi-truck accidents, can be catastrophic. A typical tractor-trailer can weigh several thousand tons and greatly outweigh the average passenger vehicle. Because of the great size of these trucks, a collision between a tractor-trailer and an ordinary car are likely to result in serious or even fatal injuries. Due to the serious nature of these collisions, preserving evidence, and interviewing witnesses it is imperative to contact a trucking accident attorney immediately.

Trucking accidents commonly occur as a result of driver fatigue, driving at excessive speeds, illegal operating procedures, inadequate truck maintenance, improper training, defective equipment or improper loads. There are federal and state regulations that govern the conduct of trucking companies and their drivers.
