Most truck accidents that occur in the U.S. are preventable. The behavior and circumstances that lead to these collisions can be avoided if people and companies exercise proper caution and care. Unfortunately, mistakes are made and some companies put profits above safety.

Our Louisville truck accident attorneys take on all types of collisions involving commercial trucks, involving a wide range of causes and contributing factors. We know how to identify and expose negligent and wrongful acts to our clients’ benefit, helping them seek the full compensation they need.

Identifying the Cause of Your Collision

Some of the problems that cause trucking accidents include:

  • Lack of training and inexperienced drivers
  • Overloaded and oversized trucks
  • Poor maintenance of trucks, including brakes and tires
  • Driver fatigue and hours-of-service violations
  • Speeding over the limit or driving too fast for conditions
  • Drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Safety system problems, such as issues with reflectors, lights and other warning devices
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to check blind spots

Many of these causes can be attributed to a company’s attempt to cut costs. Trucking companies don’t want to invest in training or pay higher wages for more experienced drivers. They don’t want to pay for maintenance. The longer drivers stay on the road, the more money they make, so they drive when they’re tired. Unfortunately, serious accidents are often the result.

Holding Negligent Truck Operators & Trucking Companies Accountable

As Louisville truck accident lawyers, we believe in holding negligent truck drivers and trucking companies accountable when they cause accidents. If you or someone you care about has been in a trucking accident, we will work hard to see that you get the compensation you need.

Getting results in these cases means going up against the big insurance companies that represent truckers and truck companies. These are major opponents. Our firm has the experience to take them on in your case.
