Hampton Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents are serious business. When it comes to large semi-trucks weighing up to 80,000 pounds colliding with smaller pedestrian vehicles weighing in at an average of 3,300 pounds, you don’t need to do the calculations to understand how serious it can be.

Accidents that involve large trucks often leave passengers of other vehicles and bystanders severely or fatally injured, completely changing their lives. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a truck accident, don’t wait to get legal help.

Types of Truck Accidents

We all need to be careful when we are behind the wheel, but when it comes to large trucks, the need to practice safe driving is even more important. There is almost an infinite number of things that can go wrong with such a large vehicle.

Truck drivers and their respective companies are required to have specific licenses and training and must follow standard laws, rules, and regulations. Any time one of these parties fails to meet these basic safety standards, they could be held responsible for the injuries and deaths that result.

Common truck accidents we see are:

  • Speeding, aggressiveness, constantly changing lanes, or other reckless habits
  • Driving while drunk or distracted, or driving past state-regulated limits
  • Lack of training or qualifications to drive a specific truck, handling the load, or even the route
  • Defective mechanical equipment such as brakes or tires

Keep in mind that this is not an exclusive list of accidents eligible for a lawsuit. The best way to determine if you have a case is to contact a truck accident lawyer immediately.
