Tulsa Trucking Accident Lawyers
Accident involving tractor-trailer rigs, 18 wheelers, semis and other large trucks usually result in serious injury or death. Rarely will an accident involving a tractor-trailer or semi-truck have a minor impact on a victim’s life.
Causes of Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents are often the result of preventable negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company. The negligence may involve speeding, drugs or alcohol, driver fatigue (falsifying logbooks), improper loading, poor maintenance, poor training and violations of federal safety regulations.
Large trucking companies and their insurance companies will go to great lengths to deprive injured victims of their legal rights.
Since most trucking accidents involve significant damages, the trucking companies have a tremendous incentive to shift the blame to the innocent victim. They, of course, have their own interest in mind, not yours.
Often times the trucking companies and insurance companies will have an investigator on the scene within hours of the accident. They will thoroughly document all details of the accident to begin piecing together their defense.
