Commercial Vehicle Accidents Are More Complicated

An Experienced Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

In an accident involving passenger vehicles, typically one or the other driver is at fault for that accident.

This isn’t the case for commercial trucking accidents.

When you get in an accident with a commercial vehicle, it’s possible that the person responsible for that accident isn’t even driving.

This makes it challenging for victims to figure out what to do next–or who is responsible for the accident.

Responsible parties can include

  • The commercial driver
  • The trucking company
  • The mechanic responsible for mandatory maintenance
  • And others

When you enlist Biggs & Greenslade to handle your commercial vehicle accident, we’ll start by helping you identify who is responsible for your accident.

Most Common Causes for Commercial Truck Accidents

Loss of Control

Commercial vehicles don’t stop on a dime. If a driver lost control of their car because they were speeding for instance, they can be held financially liable for the accident.

Failure to Maintain Lane

Commercial trucks are wider than passenger vehicles. It’s easy for them to stray outside of a lane, and a lapse in concentration can cause a dangerous accident.

Improper Turns

Commercial vehicles make wide turns. Most professional drivers understand and compensate for that, but occasionally they lose their concentration and cause an accident.

Driver Fatigue

Laws prevent drivers from driving more than 12 hours a day or 70 hours in a week, but some choose to ignore those laws, which can cause accidents.

Following too Close

You can’t control how closely someone follows you. Most commercial drivers understand how dangerous following too close can be, but others choose to ignore that danger.

Distracted Driving

Even professional drivers aren’t immune to distraction, and some text and drive despite the danger it poses to the other drivers on the road.

Mechanical Failure

When a commercial vehicle has a blowout, or there’s another mechanical failure, the vehicles around that truck may be in danger.

And More

The 18-wheeler accident attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine who’s responsible–and then we’ll fight for your recovery.
