An 18-wheeler weighs up to 30 times more than a car, so when the two collide, the results are often devastating for the smaller vehicle. Tractor-trailers are big, powerful trucks that are 70-80 feet in length and weigh up to 80,000 pounds. That’s just one reason why truck drivers go through so much training and are held to such strict safety standards. But not all truckers are as careful as they should be. Some severely injure or kill others in accidents that could have been prevented had the truck driver not been acting recklessly. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents are:
- Distracted driving (texting, talking on the phone, eating/drinking, adjusting the radio or GPS)
- Improper turns or lane shifts
- Defective truck parts (brakes, transmission, underride guards)
- Unsecure or unbalanced cargo load
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Unqualified drivers or drivers with a checkered past
Whether you were rear-ended by an 18-wheeler or had your car demolished by a tractor-trailer in a jackknife crash, you have rights, and the truck accident attorneys from our Dodge City law firm can protect those rights.
What can I do to protect my rights after a truck accident?
If you’re the victim of a truck wreck, you have the legal right to seek financial compensation for your medical bills, repairs to your vehicle, lost wages, pain, suffering, and possibly more. But truck crashes aren’t as straightforward as other accidents. That’s because other than the trucker, you may have to deal with the trucking company, the owner of the truck, or those responsible for loading the truck’s cargo. Simply put – trying to decipher who’s responsible for your accident and figuring out how to track them down can quickly turn into fiasco. To top it off, trucking companies are notorious for having teams of attorneys in their corner fighting for their best interests. One of the best ways to level the playing field is to get an experienced lawyer from our Dodge City law firm on your side. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to take on big trucking companies and get you the compensation you’re entitled to. Best of all, we work on a contingency fee basis – that means you pay nothing unless we win.
