Trucking Accidents

Woodstock Trucking Accident Attorney

About Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks are the gargantuan vehicles that we see on our highways and roadways on a daily basis. Sharing the road with these large trucks may seem intimidating, and for good reason. It is not uncommon for these trucks to cause major motor vehicle collisions that result in serious accident and injury. These are large vehicles that must be constantly maintained and handled properly. Even the slightest error can have huge consequences.

There are many causes of truck accidents, but one of the major causes is truck driver fatigue. Drivers are constantly under deadlines to deliver their cargo on time, so while they have mandated resting breaks, many drivers do not take them. Hundreds of accidents every year are caused when truck drivers fall asleep at the wheel.

Another problem in the trucking industry is lack of experience. Trucking companies will either knowingly or unknowingly hire drivers with false licenses or licenses that were obtained illegally. Only the most experienced drivers should be driving these incredibly large and dangerous vehicles, but actually, many truck drivers are inexperienced. Some other causes of truck accidents are mechanical malfunction, cell phone use and poorly distributed cargo. If you were involved in an accident with a commercial truck, our firm is here to help you.
