Truck Accidents Archives

Do large trucks come with special accident risks?

Last week, we covered some general steps for staying safe behind the wheel. When you're a commercial truck driver or if you have reason to drive a larger truck or van for any reason, following simple safety tips isn't always enough. Heavier machinery can be more difficult to control, and you shouldn't drive such vehicles without the proper training and credentials. Some larger trucks, such as rented moving trucks, don't require special credentials, but you should avoid driving them if you have any questions about your ability to maneuver on the road safely.

Truckers mustn't text or talk while driving

semi-trailer truck accidents can kill people who are just trying to go about their normal daily activities. Distracted semi-trailer truck drivers can cause these accidents simply because they aren't focused on driving. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has some rules that forbid truckers from certain distractions when they are driving.

Catastrophic injuries can occur in a commercial vehicle accident

Catastrophic injuries are possible when your vehicle is struck by a semi-truck. If you are a pedestrian or bicyclist who is struck, the likelihood of catastrophic injuries increases greatly. We understand that you are likely facing significant challenges because of the injuries that you suffered during the accident. We want you to know that you do have the right to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages.
