Unfortunately, it is not always the victim of the truck accident that brings suit
against another party. In some cases it is the loved one of the deceased who files
a personal injury claim. If you have a loved one who was lost in a truck accident,
or any accident for that matter, don’t face the mounting pile of medical bills and
expenses alone. We may be able to help you hold the responsible party and their insurance
company accountable for those expenses.
Defective Parts and Machinery
In some instances, the driver is not at-fault, but rather the manufacturer of the
vehicle or a part of the vehicle (such as tires) is responsible for the accident.
In cases like these, your personal injury may not always seem so simple. But don’t
be discouraged; there are still ways to recover your expenses.
Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and most deadly in the
United States. At , we recognize that handling these cases requires a thorough understanding
of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level. Trucking companies
are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations concerning their
equipment and their drivers' hours.
Large trucks were much more likely to be involved in a fatal multiple-vehicle crash
– as opposed to a fatal single-vehicle crash – than were passenger vehicles (82 percent
(82%) of all large trucks involved in fatal crashes, compared with 59 percent (59%)
of all passenger vehicles). Most of the fatal crashes involving large trucks occurred
in rural areas (62%), during the daytime (66%), and on weekdays (78%). The percentage
of large-truck drivers involved in fatal crashes who had a blood alcohol concentration
(BAC) of .08 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or higher was 1 percent (1%) in 2007. The
BAC level for all commercial vehicle operators in every state in the U.S. is .04
g/dL, half of the legal limit of .08 for all other drivers.
In all automobile accident cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly
