When truck drivers or their employers act negligently, they are not taking the appropriate safety precautions to protect other road users. They put the importance of deadlines and overloaded shipments ahead of safety all too often. Drivers are pushed to the limit as they exceed allotted work hours, shipment sizes, and miles driven, which eventually causes fatigue and inattentiveness.
Reduced safety can lead to catastrophic truck wrecks that often involve fatalities. Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers are dangerous by the nature of their overwhelming size and weight compared to nearly every other vehicle on the road. Their safety requirements are most concerning, and if you or a loved one has been involved in a serious or fatal truck wreck, it is critical to contact a lawyer who is experienced in investigating and pursuing injury claims as soon as possible.
At Sommerman & Quesada, L.L.P., we take immediate action to preserve and gather evidence, obtain witness statements, and if needed, to reconstruct the scene of the wreck. Damaged or lost evidence is of top concern.
