Butler County Truck Accident Attorney

When you are driving down the highway and are getting close to a large commercial truck, we know that you are careful. After all, these vehicles have the potential to cause plenty of damage if they get into an accident. While we hope you are never involved in an accident with a large truck, you need to know where to turn if it does happen.

At the SMA Law Group, we know the devastation that these accidents can cause. If you need a Butler County truck accident attorney, turn to us so we can work on getting you the compensation you deserve for all of your accident-related expenses.

These Accidents Can Be Devastating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a new traffic safety fact sheet for the latest reporting year. When we look at it, we can see it gives us a clear picture of the accidents these trucks are involved. We know that in 2017, there were:

  • 4,761 people killed in large truck crashes in the US.
  • In 2015 more than 116,000 people were injured in large truck crashes.

What Can Happen?

We know from past studies, and from information from the Pennsylvania DOT, that the causes of many of these accidents revolve around vehicle failures. When we say that, we mean that something does wrong with one or more of the following systems:

  • Power train
  • Brake system
  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Lighting
  • Steering
  • And more

In order to prevent these systems from failing, it is the responsibility of the companies and agencies that maintain these trucks to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles. Preventative maintenance can solve many of the problems that can happen on the roadway.

Drivers also have a big responsibility. They should always be thoroughly trained to operate each vehicle they are asked to drive, even after they get their commercial drivers license. They should always follow state and federal laws regarding how many hours they are allowed to drive in a day and how much weight they can carry at once.

Under no circumstances should drivers be impaired by drugs or alcohol when they are operating their vehicle. They should also limit their distractions. There is no reason a truck driver should be watching videos on their phones or sending text messages when they should be watching the roadway.
