Trucking Accidents

We know first hand the devastation that is caused by trucking collisions. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, thousands of motorists are killed each year by large trucks – those weighing more than 10,000 pounds. 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and semis fall into this category. Trucking accidents have an increased chance of causing an injury because in most cases, a truck cannot remain upright during an accident. Additionally, truck drivers have limited visibility and maneuverability.

These factors greatly contribute to truck accidents. Whether the driver is distracted, falls asleep at the wheel or just isn't paying attention, accidents caused by these massive trucks can kill or catastrophically injure motorists. Truck drivers and the companies they work for have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Unsafe driving, oversized cargo loads and various other careless factors put the public and the truck operators in danger.

The Law Office of A.J. Mitchell, P.L.C. is adept at getting to the root cause of truck accidents. We investigate negligence by the driver and/or the trucking company, employing a network of experts:

  • Accident reconstruction specialists.
  • Human factor experts, who can testify about the truck driver's actions, what a reasonable person would perceive, and how much reaction time the victim(s) had.
  • Expert truck mechanics to determine the condition of brakes, tires, lights, the trailer and other equipment at the time of the crash.
  • Our own attorneys examine the driver's history and qualifications, the company's hiring and training practices, driver's logs, and any tracking devices, such as GPS locators. Truck accident cases can be very complex and you need an experienced and aggressive attorney to handle them successfully.
