A plethora of additional duties and liability claims exist when an accident is caused by a truck driver. There are issues regarding the amount of hours an individual has driven that could affect the ability to drive responsibly.

Our attorneys know that there are matters where a driver has been improperly trained or the vehicle has not been maintained that cause truck accidents. Tractor-trailers, or 18-wheelers, also cause more serious injuries because of their size and the larger blind spots for the driver with limited visibility or no visibility of other vehicles on the road.

If you are injured in a truck accident, a personal injury claim against the driver, their company or both could result in compensation for lost income if you missed work because you were recovering from a serious injury.
