Accidents involving semi trucks can result in serious injuries and damages. Trucks are larger and heavier than cars, and also carry heavy cargo. Consequently, the injuries sustained by all parties may be far worse in a truck accident than a multiple-car accident. The Law Offices of John M.

- Causes of Trucking Accidents
- There are many different causes of large truck accidents, including:
- Unbalanced cargo
- Overloaded cargo
- Truck driver fatigue (falling asleep at the wheel)
- Truck driver negligence (reckless driving and speeding)
- Improper truck maintenance
Regardless of the cause of the accident, we can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.Liability in Truck Accident Cases
Truck accident cases are extremely complex due to the number of potential parties with liability including the truck leasing company, the driver, the driver's employer and the owner of the products being shipped. Tracking down each entity to assign responsibility can be a daunting task. We can investigate the background of the companies, the truck driver's background, how long he or she has been working, his or her work schedule, and how long the driver was driving on the day and week in question.Out-of-State Clients
