Semi Truck Accident Attorneys
Accidents involving tractor-trailers and semi trucks can sometimes present special issues. When a motorist is struck by a large commercial vehicle, the injuries can be catastrophic and the damages may be astronomical. We are experienced in handling such trucking cases. Commercial trucks typically weigh much more than other vehicles on the highway and often have a much greater stopping distance and take much longer to bring to a stop. For this reason, safety dictates that truck drivers maintain a safe speed and also maintain a greater stopping distance.
Professional and over the road truck drivers are limited by law to driving a certain maximum number of hours per day and are required to maintain drivers logs. Many modern trucks are also equipped with event data records (“black boxes”) which can record important information about an accident or incident, such as the truck’s speed and braking.
