It is no secret that driving can be a dangerous activity and when commercial trucks are involved, the potential for damage greatly increases. The large size and weight of a truck can create dangerous conditions not present in accidents involving smaller vehicles. For example, commercial trucks generally have huge blind spots and tend to make wide turns, occupying large sections of the road. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident involving a commercial truck through no fault of your own, the legal team at Accident Attorneys can help.

Commercial truck drivers work in an environment that can sometimes encourage dangerous driving behavior. To meet strict deadlines a driver may engage in negligent actions such as driving longer than allowed or through hazardous conditions. Although not every accident involves these conditions, our attorneys will investigate all options in order to discover the true cause of a collision.
Trucking accidents generally occur due to a combination of factors including:
Truck drivers are not the only party who can incur liability for an accident. In certain cases, the trucking company can share responsibility or be entirely at fault for damages due to an accident. For example, if a company knowingly hired a driver with a history of alcohol abuse and that driver causes an accident, the employer may be held liable. A trucking company can also fail to maintain their fleet. If the breaks fail, or the hydraulic system is compromised on a vehicle and an accident occurs, the company may again be held responsible.
