Each year, thousands of victims are unexpectedly hit and killed by semi-tractor trailers and other oversized trucks. The victims leave behind broken families while survivors often require long-term therapy and care. If your loved one’s truck accident resulted from a careless act of negligence, our lawyers will work hard to identify and hold the responsible parties accountable.
Driver errors due to lack of training, lack of sleep or unsafe operation are among the most common causes of truck accidents. Driver fatigue is one of the most unfortunate and obvious causes of truck collisions. Truck mechanics, truck makers and part manufacturers can be held responsible for accidents that result from an oversight or unsafe practice. Oversized and overweight vehicles incur more risks on the road than vehicles that abide by safety regulations. Trucking company owners may be found to have played a part in the unsafe operation of their vehicles. Owners who fail to properly supervise and regulate the operation of a trucking business can be heavily fined and forced to financially compensate victims’ families.
The lawyers at The Ledger Law have experience representing trucking accident victims and their family members. We can help innocent drivers vulnerable to damage from unsafe trucks through the confident prosecution of substandard trucking operations. Our goal is to get more trucking companies to acknowledge the importance of safety in the trucking industry and make an example of the companies that ignore safety standards.
