La Grange Truck Accident Lawyer

Semi-trucks deliver all the consumer goods we clamor for, and because consumer demand is not going away anytime soon, the trucking industry is nearly always bustling. Because truck drivers are professional drivers and because truck accidents are so inherently dangerous, federal and state governments implement serious safety rules and regulations on the industry at large and on truck drivers specifically. When truck accidents happen, they tend to be among the most deadly and costly accidents. If you’ve been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence in a truck accident, consult with an experienced La Grange truck accident lawyer today. 

Truck Accidents

As mentioned, the trucking industry is booming, and this can translate to trucking companies that cut corners and to truck drivers who are pushed beyond the limits of safe driving. The massive size and weight of big rigs make the impact of any accidents involving them immense and immensely dangerous (especially for occupants of the other vehicle involved).  

Negligence and Liability

Truck accident cases are complicated by many factors, and when it comes to the cause of these often-deadly accidents, there are many forms of negligence to go around, including:

  • The Trucking Company – The trucking company shoulders hefty responsibilities related to their rigs, their truckers, and their mechanics. The trucking company is responsible for hiring experienced truck drivers who have the necessary experience and licensure and for not pushing these truck drivers to work outside the bounds of hours-of-service restrictions that are implemented by the federal government. Additionally, the trucking company must keep its fleet of trucks in safe working order and ensure that all required maintenance and safety checks are performed according to exacting schedules. Finally, the trucking company is responsible for hiring experienced mechanics who have the skill and training to perform all necessary repairs and maintenance and for providing these mechanics with high-quality tools and parts.
  • The Truck Driver – The truck driver is responsible for driving within all the safety rules and regulations set forth by both federal and state governments. Truck driver negligence in the form of exhaustion, impairment, distraction, excessive speed, and/or aggression is often at the root of life-threatening truck accidents.
  • The Truck and Parts Manufacturer – The manufacturer of the truck itself (and of the parts that comprise the truck) is responsible for designing safe trucks in the first place and for manufacturing 18-wheelers that aren’t dangerously defective. When they fail on either of these counts, the results can be disastrous.
