About Semi-Truck Accidents

Large trucks are much more likely to be involved in fatal crashes than passenger vehicles are. Because of the enormous size and weight of these motor vehicles, the crashes are much more extreme and the injuries resulting from wrecks with semi-trucks tend to be very severe.

For this reason, it is important for truck drivers to be extra careful when behind the wheel, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration places strict guidelines on truck drivers to limit their hours and enforce other vehicle safety regulations.

When these guidelines are not followed, tragedy can strike and it will become necessary to take action against the responsible party. Truck accidents often end in fatalities or injuries that are serious and permanent. If find yourself or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident in the Antelope Valley, speak with an injury attorney about your options.

There are many factors that can lead to a truck accident, but the most common causes of these accidents are:

  • Mechanical Problems
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Decreased Visibility
  • Decreased Maneuverability
  • Driver Carelessness or Recklessness

Injured in a truck accident in Palmdale? Contact a lawyer today!

When a semi-truck accident occurs, trucking companies usually send a representative to the accident scene to confront accident victims immediately following the event, when they're at their most vulnerable. These agents work to handle everything at the scene of the accident so that they can limit their company's liability making it difficult to bring a claim against them in the future.

Large trucking companies have their own investigators and attorneys, so you will need an experienced attorney fighting for you if you've been injured in a truck accident. Your lawyer will protect you from the manipulation of trucking companies and will take the proper actions to make sure you receive compensation.

If you have suffered injuries in a truck accident, you should immediately contact The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus!
