Injured in a Trucking Accident or a Public Transportation Accident?
As a loaded big rig can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. compared with 5000 lbs. for a passenger vehicle, it is easy to imagine how catastrophic a collision could be for the occupants of the passenger vehicle. Given the magnitude of injuries and future expenses that they entail, it is important to have legal representation that is familiar with these kinds of accidents and competent to obtain the maximum compensation possible. It is recommended that if you or a family member has been injured in big rig accident that you contact a personal injury attorney experienced in a trucking accident.
Why Do These Accidents Occur?
The big rig accident or truck accident is usually due to operator error or equipment failure. The operator may be inattentive, fatigued, distracted or intoxicated. He may be speeding to make a deadline and hence unable to stop in a timely manner. Equipment failure, particularly faulty brakes, can play a role. The accident can also stem from the actions of another car who fails to recognize the inability of a big rig to stop or maneuver quickly. In cases of train or bus accidents, the situation can be even more dangerous, as not only is the vehicle deadly when out of control; they are full of innocent passengers that can be severely injured when an accident occurs. Our legal team at the firm assists clients in any of the following serious accident cases involving large vehicles:
