A trucking accident is a devastating thing. Due to the massive size and heavy weight of semi-trailers and trailer combinations, they overpower other vehicles on the road easily. These accidents often result in serious or fatal injuries to approximately 130,000 people each year.
Determining fault in a trucking accident is far more complicated than doing so with car accidents. The trucking industry is well protected by experienced attorneys, so it is important for those involved in a trucking accident to have legal representation that thoroughly understands the trucking industry and all of the factors involved.
Insurance: Insurance carriers for trucking companies handle high-expense claims, and losing a case means a huge amount of money is lost. Because of this, they defend trucking accident cases very aggressively.
Accident investigations: Following a vehicle accident, an investigation will occur to determine who was at fault. Trucking companies have accident response teams that move to investigate accidents quickly after they occur, any time of the day or night. These response teams typically will consist of an investigator, a risk management team, and a company safety evaluator.
Quickly contacting an attorney following an accident will ensure that your attorney will also be able to respond swiftly and investigate the accident alongside the trucking company staff, helping you stay competitive with them. When you contact us, you can be sure that your attorney, Dax Jones, will investigate the accident and ensure that the trucking company and any other investigators preserve vital evidence. Additionally, attorneys can work with a truck accident reconstructionist to determine how the crash occurred.

Failure of the driver to check blind spots
