Holding Trucking Companies Responsible For Your Injuries
Because it is their job, truck drivers often are safer drivers than other drivers on the road. The problem is that it only takes a moment of negligence for an 18-wheeler to create catastrophic injuries. When these accidents happen, the trucking companies often have a strong legal team to defend them against the resulting injury claims. But you do not have to be intimidated by that.
At Pitkin Law, we believe that all negligent parties should be held responsible for the consequences of the accidents they cause. We know how to review each incident to determine what factors may have contributed to the crash, and use that to your advantage when we negotiate for your compensation.
How Truck Accidents Can Happen
While truckers are often safe drivers, there are still many ways that things can go wrong and can cause of an accident. Some potential reasons for a truck accident include:
- Speeding through traffic to meet a delivery deadline or get ahead of schedule
- Exhaustion from driving excessive hours in a day
- Unbalanced cargo loads
- Lack of vehicle maintenance
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Due to the sheer size of these commercial vehicles, the injuries victims sustain are almost always more severe than the injuries you may find at an accident between two passenger vehicles. When there is so much at stake in the outcome of your compensation claim, we do not settle for less during negotiations or litigation.
