Miller & Gaudio PC aggressively represents victims of truck accidents of all varieties, including the following:
- Car-truck collisions
- Truck-to-truck collisions
- Truck driver injuries
- Truck-pedestrian injuries and fatalities
- Truck-bicycle injuries and fatalities
- Car-snowplow collisions
- Car-garbage truck collisions
Truck accidents such as semi wrecks have many causes, but there is almost always some type of negligence involved, including:
- Illegal lane changes
- Inattentive driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while fatigued, without the legally prescribed number of hours of sleep and rest
- Pulling too heavy of a load or improperly secured cargo
- Truck part defects, including defective tires and brakes
- Inadequate safety markings on the truck
- Failure to properly maintain a truck or trailer
Truck operation on our streets and highways is subject to specific rules and regulations.
After we undertake a detailed investigation of an 18-wheeler accident, we often discover specific key facts such as the following:
- The truck driver may not have had the appropriate license.
- The truck driver may have been pulling a trailer not owned by him or his company.
- The truck driver may have been an employee of a trucking company or he may have been an independent subcontractor.
- Some mechanical failure may have contributed to or caused the crash — such as a nonfunctioning brake light or missing reflective tape.
- The truck may not have been properly inspected according to schedule.
All such details may end up being critically important to the pursuit of maximum compensation for a person who has suffered a spinal cord injury, a brain injury, a crush injury or a broken bone — or for the surviving family members after a truck accident fatality.
