Truck Accidents

Serving Gainesville, Jacksonville, Atlanta areas

Nearly 70% of all commercial freight in the United States is delivered by truck. This has made the trucking industry one of the largest and most competitive businesses in America. Tractor-trailers are a common sight on highways throughout the nation.

Unfortunately, due to their massive size and weight, truck accidents can lead to serious personal injury and even wrongful death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that someone is seriously injured or killed in a tractor-trailer accident every 16 minutes.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Because of industry competition, trucking companies often impose unrealistic schedules on their drivers, asking them to meet impossible delivery deadlines. This can lead to fatigued driving, which is one of the most common causes of truck accidents.

Other factors that frequently lead to truck accidents include:

Federal trucking laws are designed to minimize each of these problems and reduce the number of truck accidents that occur. When trucking companies or drivers violate federal laws in order to serve the company’s bottom dollar, they can and should be held accountable for negligence.

Are You Prepared to Fight the Trucking Industry?

Every time a truck accident happens, trucking companies will work quickly to protect their own interests by sending lawyers, representatives, and investigators to the scene of the accident. Without an experienced attorney on your side, you risk letting important evidence slip through your fingers, or not knowing the full extent of your rights.
