Birmingham Truck Accident Lawyer
Compassionate, Committed, and Experienced. We’re Here For You!
Any motor vehicle accident can lead to serious injuries, but accidents involving commercial vehicles and semi-trucks can be especially damaging, if not deadly. Due to their large size, these vehicles can cause substantial damage with even the smallest misdirection or driver error. Truck accident survivors might face catastrophic injuries, like paralysis or brain damage, and even seemingly minor crashes might result in badly broken bones and costly vehicle damage. Because the stakes are so high in truck accidents, it is especially important to get in touch with an attorney immediately after your crash to secure reliable legal counsel.

What Causes Truck Accidents?
After a crash, one of the biggest questions is often-- who caused the accident? Determining who caused the crash is about more than just curiosity, it's about liability, and it is crucial in seeking compensation. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Drowsy driving
- Driver intoxication
- Inadequate driver training
- Poorly loaded trailer
- Improperly hitched trailer
- Mechanical failure
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Road hazards
Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?
Our team can work with you and review the details of your case to discover the likely cause of the accident, which should lead us to the party responsible. Once we’ve found out who is responsible, we can take the next step towards securing compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Liability varies on a case-by-case basis, though in many truck accidents, the trucking company is at least partially liable for the accident. Trucking companies are responsible for hiring and training their drivers, maintaining their vehicles, loading their cargo properly, and they must enforce trucking laws to ensure their drivers aren’t overworked. If a trucking company is in any way negligent, any number of dangerous issues could arise.
In some cases, independent cargo loading companies might be liable for unsecured loads, or mechanics and parts manufacturers could be liable for mechanical problems. To identify the liable party in your accident, get in touch with our attorneys, today.
