When Big Rigs Go Wrong – We Strive to Make It Right:

Too many motor vehicle accidents occur every day throughout the United States; Each year over about 4,000 people die in accidents with large trucks and over 104,000 are injured. There are a few well known drivers of bad behavior that are red flags in any accident. Was the driver on an unreasonable or unlawful schedule? Was the truck road ready and compliant with all laws? Was the driver on prescriptions drugs that state not to operate heavy machinery? Did driver fatigue or alcohol consumption contribute to the crash?

When a truck driver is at fault in an accident these factors could mean that you are entitled to punitive damages which award a larger settlement in your favor because of company or driver negligence. Truck accidents are often complicated and it is important to tell your representation all information as soon as possible so small details are not forgotten.
