Injury Attorney for Trucking Accident

Trucking Accident Injury in Alabama

Personal Injury Lawyer Huntsville, AL | Crumbley-Blackwell & Associates, P.C.

Trucks such as "18-wheelers" are massive vehicles. Many people driving alongside trucks often feel intimidated or worried, and they may be justified to feel this way. Unfortunately, such massive vehicles routinely cause major car accidents that lead to people being significantly injured. The standards for operating a commercial trucking vehicle in Alabama are much stricter than the standards for regular vehicle operation. Due to the size of the vehicle, even the smallest mistake can have unintended consequences. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 10 million trucks on the road in the United States. The overwhelming majority of injuries in trucking accidents are suffered by people outside the truck, either occupants of other vehicles or pedestrians.

Depending on your situation, there could be multiple parties at fault - we're prepared to take on drivers, trucking companies, and manufacturers. If you've recently been involved in a trucking related accident - schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Today’s truck drivers are under increasing pressure to meet tight deadlines. This results in many drivers being overworked in an effort to make deadlines. When truck drivers are overworked, it can greatly increase the chances of an accident. Many accidents are the result of the following:

  • Drivers making an error
  • DUI of alcohol or another impairing substance
  • Overloaded vehicles
  • Trucks that are not properly maintained
  • Drivers who are distracted
  • Drivers who are tired
