Assisting Victims of Serious 18-Wheeler Collisions
When 18-wheeler accidents occur, the consequences can be devastating. Due to their sheer size and weight of 18-wheeler vehicles, individuals in passenger vehicles are especially susceptible to harm. If you or a loved one were involved in a serious truck accident, resulting in extensive, catastrophic injury or even death, Stoner Law can help. Our dedicated West Helena truck accident attorney can provide you with the compassionate guidance and sound representation you need to navigate the legal process. No matter how complex or difficult your case, we strive to recover the maximum compensation you are owed.
Who Can Be Held Liable in Trucking Accidents?
In a legal sense, trucking accidents tend to be more complex than passenger vehicle collisions. This is largely due to the fact that multiple parties can be responsible for a single 18-wheeler accident. Depending on various circumstances, the truck driver, truck owner, truck manufacturer, or another party may be liable for your injuries. If any of these parties act negligently, and you are injured or your loved one is killed as a result, you are entitled to take legal action.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents that can be attributed to negligence include:
- Driver fatigue, due to unreasonable schedules or quotas
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
- Lack of adequate supervision, training, or experience
- Insufficient or improper truck maintenance
- Poorly manufactured or defective truck parts
- Unsafe or hazardous road conditions
- Reckless driving, including speeding
- Distracted driving, including cell phone use
