Potential Causes of a Tractor Trailer Accident

Were you recently involved in an accident with a tractor trailer? If so, you must realize early on that you have rights.

There are many circumstances that can lead to a tractor trailer accident, including the following:

  • Truckers who have been on the road for too long, not getting the appropriate amount of rest
  • Truckers who are driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Missing safety equipment
  • Excessive speed
  • Poorly maintained vehicle

If you were injured in a tractor trailer accident due to the negligence of a truck driver, contact us to discuss your rights and learn more about personal injury law. We are here to help you through this difficult stretch in your life.
