Trucking Accidents Are Serious!
According to Findlaw.com, the large size of commercial trucks often leads to truck accidents, which is much more destructive than typical car accidents. It is based on this reason why trucks need routine maintenance and routine inspection before operating on the road. Huge rigs or semi-trucks with improperly connected trailers, brake failures, extremely worn tires, and improper load distribution semi-trucks can cause major accidents on the roadway. We initiate claims against all accountable parties. Potentially negligent parties could include:
- The driver
- The truck owner
- The truck manufacturer
- The truck loader
- The brake manufacturer
- The company responsible for the truck’s maintenance
