Semi Truck Accidents

25% of all traffic fatalities resulting from multiple vehicle accidents are caused by commercial trucks, despite the fact that they make up only 3% of all registered vehicles. If you have been involved in an accident or injury involving a commercial truck, tractor-trailer or semi, please call us to schedule a free consultation.

Trucking Accidents are caused by:

  • Truck driver negligence — for example, driving too long without required rest breaks, driver logbook can reveal other negligent practices
  • Rig owner negligence — failure to perform scheduled maintenance
  • Manufacturer negligence — including defective parts such as breaks, springs, and couplings
  • Government negligence
  • Truck driver failing to mark the scene of an accident, causing a multi-car crash
  • Semis making wide turns and not seeing vehicles on the inside lane
  • Truck loaded improperly, causing a shifting or unsafe load
  • Inadequate training of drivers, especially of smaller trucks
  • Overloading trucks, causing mechanical failure
