Large trucks such as tractor trailers and semis are far bigger and more difficult to steer than standard sized vehicles, and therefore pose a greater risk to other drivers on the road if not operated safely. There are strict federal and state regulations in place to help ensure your safety on the road, but when truck drivers violate these regulations, innocent people are put at risk. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a truck accident or commercial vehicle accident, you deserve compassion, respect, and financial compensation—all in a timely manner. the Law Offices of Kennedy and Brown has experienced truck accident attorneys with the knowledge and skills to successfully litigate these types of cases and getting you the compensation you are entitled to.
Dealing with the aftermath of injuries sustained during an accident caused by a commercial truck such as a tractor trailer or semi can be very traumatic, and we recognize that selecting the right attorney to represent your case can be difficult. Trucking companies can be very difficult to deal with, as many of them are self-insured, and therefore fight to protect their profits over your injuries. In cases involving commercial truck accidents, it is crucial to secure police reports, driver logs, licensing information and to see that a formal investigation is completed quickly. For this reason, it is crucial to have a truck accident lawyer involved from the start because an experienced attorney will stay in contact with the police to make sure all of the necessary steps are being taken.
At the Law Offices of Kennedy and Brown, we believe that it is the responsibility of commercial truck drivers and the companies they work for to make sure that their trucks are operated in a safe manner. Some common causes of accidents involving tractor trailers and semis include: unlicensed or inadequately qualified drivers, speeding, driver fatigue, ignoring safety procedures, repair/maintenance failures, overloaded trucks or trailers, truck rollover, and failure to yield the right of way.
