Americans suffer injuries and deaths about every 15 minutes in commercial truck accidents on major thoroughfares. Large commercial truck accidents may result from driver fatigue or negligence, employee-hiring negligence, equipment failure, inadequate maintenance, vehicle-design problems, and bad weather. Other accident contributors are hazardous, overweight and shifting loads.
Trucking companies and their insurance companies have become very sophisticated in investigating collisions and seek to develop contributory factors to a collision other than truck driver error. It is important to seek experienced counsel promptly after a collision involving a tractor-trailer so that important evidence can be gathered and preserved.
