Burlington Truck Accident Attorneys
30+ Years of Experience To Lend To Your Case
Were you injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a semi-truck? These larger trucks need to be extremely cautious when they take to the road, otherwise their minor mistake could be the cause of another driver, passenger, or pedestrian’s peril.
Semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and can carry multiple long trailers, which make them difficult to maneuver and control. As a result, drivers must be expertly trained, trucking companies should be vigilant to perform proper maintenance, and truck manufacturers must be very cautious and mindful in their design. If anyone makes a misstep, their mistake could result in a terrible truck accident.
If you were injured in a truck accident caused by some act of neglect, you may be able to take legal action to pursue justice and compensation by filing a claim. Our team at Crumley Roberts is here to help. Contact us today.

Truck Accidents & Liability
Once you’ve addressed your most immediate concerns- those of your health and safety- one of your first thoughts following a crash probably has to do with fault. You want to know who and what caused your crash, and whether it could have been prevented. In many cases, sadly, these types of accidents are entirely preventable, had the truck manufacturer, trucking company, and driver been responsible. The negligence of any of these parties could result in a major accident and they can, therefore, be found liable after the fact.
Truck accidents can be caused by any number of issues, including:
- Driver intoxication
- Drowsy driving
- Reckless driving
- Lack of proper driver training
- Negligent trucking company hiring practices
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Hazardous cargo loading
- Poorly secured cargo
- Dangerously designed truck
Defective vehicle parts
- Especially tires, brakes, and steering components
- Cargo spills
- Overloaded cargo
