Lawrence County Truck Accident Attorney

Big trucks, including big rigs, tractor trailers, semis and other commercial trucks, are the bosses of the road, and oftentimes, they are the causes behind truck accidents that leave lives broken and shattered. Being in a big truck accident can be a harrowing experience to say the least. Some trucks are 40 or more times the size of a standard passenger car, and they literally weigh tons, making them virtually unstoppable on the roads of Lawrence County. Anything in their way stands a great chance of being destroyed, or at the very least, seriously harmed. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a truck accident, then you know full well the terror it can bring. Contact SMA Law Group as soon as possible following your accident to begin the claims process and hold those responsible accountable for your damages.

Who’s to Blame in Truck Accidents?

It can be difficult to determine who exactly is to blame for accidents involving big trucks. This is because there can be multiple factors contributing to the accident. A thorough investigation is required to determine who was at fault; this should be started as soon as possible so any critical evidence won’t be lost. Some of the most common factors involved in truck accidents include:

  • Driver Negligence, such as:
    • Distracted driving
    • Not getting enough sleep before getting behind the wheel
    • Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or prescription medication
    • Failing to look before merging or changing lanes
    • Speeding, tailgating, or otherwise engaging in aggressive driving
  • Truck Company Negligence, including:
    • Employing inexperienced and/or unlicensed truckers
    • Requiring truck drivers to spend too many hours driving and not allotting enough time for adequate rest
    • Loading truck cargo improperly
    • Failure to properly maintain their trucks
    • Overloading their trucks
  • Repair/Maintenance Shop Negligence, including:
    • Faulty brake installation
    • Negligent transmission repairs
    • Improperly inflating tires
  • Road Construction/Maintenance Negligence, such as:
    • Ice and snow accumulation
    • Potholes or other damaged roadways
    • Low shoulders
    • Inadequate safety barriers
    • Debris from construction sites left in the road
  • Passenger Vehicle Driver Negligence, such as
    • Distracted driving
    • Failure to use blinkers
    • Creating any situation that makes it impossible for the truck driver to avoid a collision
