Truck Accident Attorneys
The truck accident attorneys at Bernheim Dolinsky, LLC have years of experience in defending the rights of drivers and passengers who suffered severe or even fatal injuries in accidents with semi-trucks. Though large trucks account for only about 2 percent of the vehicles on American roads, they are responsible for a disproportionately high number of collisions every year, and victims of truck accidents often suffer catastrophic or even fatal injuries. If you or your loved one has been involved in a truck accident, an attorney from our firm can help you fully investigate all causes of the wreck and hold any responsible parties fully accountable until you recover just compensation.
Common Truck Accident Causes
As national truck accident attorneys, we know that a truck accident can happen in mere moments but can affect victims’ lives forever. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Unsafe road conditions
- Driver fatigue
- Inadequate driver training
- Driver error
- Improper evaluation of stopping distance
- Improperly secured or loaded cargo
- Failure to yield
- Dangerous cargo
- Poor truck maintenance:
- Unsafe tire pressure
- Defective tires
- Insufficient brake fluid or other truck fluids
- Faulty windshield wipers
- Electrical errors or poor electrical connections
- Improper steering mechanism maintenance
When neglect on the part of a trucking company, driver, or maintenance or repair professional leads to a truck accident, innocent motorists and passengers can suffer devastating consequences. It is the duty of our truck accident attorneys to hold any and all parties responsible for such collisions fully accountable for their actions until our clients are justly compensated for their damages.
Truck Accident Injuries
A truck may weigh up to 80,000 pounds, while the average passenger vehicle weighs only 3,000 pounds. Injuries resulting from truck accidents are often catastrophic, in part due to the unmatched size and height of vehicles involved. Injuries upon which our attorneys may base truck accident lawsuit claims include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Injury to internal organs
If you or someone you love has suffered injury in a truck accident, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
