Have You Been Hurt In a Semi Accident?

Our society depends heavily on the reliable delivery of merchandise and materials of all kinds by large trucks, in rural areas, small towns and big cities. Consequently, wherever there is industry or commerce, semi trucks and other commercial vehicles share the roads with vehicles such as family cars. Collisions between semis and cars, buses, motorcycles, bicycles or pedestrians nearly always result in serious or catastrophic injuries. Fatalities are common outcomes in truck accidents.

Also known as 18-wheelers, big rigs and tractor-trailers, semis pose dangers to the public on county roads, interstate highways and city streets. In rural areas, mobile farm machinery such as combines, tractors and grain wagons also create potential risks to drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

In the event of a semi accident that causes injuries or death, a prompt investigation can be critical to the outcome of a personal injury or wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Were the truck driver and truck company complying with federal trucking regulations? Was the driver fatigued or under the influence of alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs or over-the-counter remedies? Had the driver received adequate training? Does the driver's logbook reveal any irregularities such as too many hours on the road to allow the driver a good night's sleep? Was the truck overloaded and was the load properly balanced and secured?
