Truck Accidents

Large trucks, big rigs and shipping vehicles are all a part of daily life.  We see them on our streets and highways moving various goods through the city, around the state and even across the country.  While many drivers of these vehicles are attentive, accidents do happen, and sometimes these accidents are extremely serious.  If you or someone that you love has been injured in an accident with one of these large vehicles, it’s important that you speak with a truck accident lawyer at Cherkaoui & Associates PLLC Truck accident attorneys have the legal know-how to help you receive just compensation for your injuries.

There are many reasons why a large truck accident may occur.  One reason has to do with the size of these trucks and shipping vehicles.  Large trucks have many blind spots and are also difficult to maneuver. This means that truck drivers need to be extra careful when turning and merging to avoid injuring other motorists.  Particularly dangerous are jackknife truck accidents, in which a truck loses control and splays sideways across multiple lanes.  Another possible cause of large truck accidents involves poorly secured loads, which may fall into the roadway, creating dangerous obstacles for fellow motorists.  Whatever the case may be, the trucking accident lawyers at Cherkaoui & Associates PLLC are here for you.

Another reason that trucking accidents occur involves driver fatigue and the practices of trucking companies.  Some trucking companies push their drivers too hard, forcing them to drive long hours without a break.  By tiring out their drivers, trucking companies are creating dangerous roadways for other motorists.  When fatigued, decision-making is impaired and reaction time is slowed.  On top of these factors, fatigued drivers run the risk of falling asleep at the wheel.  Drivers and trucking companies need to be held responsible for this sort of dangerous negligence.
