Truck accidents can be the most catastrophic crashes on the road. These massive vehicles are difficult to stop quickly, cannot safely make evasive maneuvers, and outweigh your vehicle by several tons.
There are many different types of trucks on the road, including:
- 18 Wheelers
- Tractor Trailers
These “road hogs” cause all kinds of crashes, including running victims off the road, underride collisions, head-on collisions, rollovers, rear-end collisions, and side collisions.
A variety of causes are behind this reckless behavior, including:
- Reckless driving
- Defective equipment or equipment brake failure
- Overloaded trucks
- Inexperienced drivers
- Weather conditions
- Road design
- Impaired visibility
- Driver fatigue
- Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
- Distracted driving
We have vast experience in bringing big-rig drivers and owners to justice when they cause a crash. These cases require an experienced trial lawyer. The best results start when we are able to begin our investigation as soon as possible. These cases have unique issues like “disappearing evidence” and a culprit that leaves town because they are simply passing through the state. That’s why you need to call Gage Mathers now – before it’s too late.
