Semi-trucks are imposing and intimidating figures on our roads that require complete attention. The size and power of a semi-truck is capable of completely destroying your vehicle and putting you one step closer to severe injury or even death. At Kittleman Thomas, we undertake the task of protecting truck accident victims and do so with an aggressive approach. Your well-being and financial stability are our top priorities and we will work diligently and comprehensively to bring you the compensation you deserve in a swift and efficient manner.
Truckers are subject to a wide range of rules and regulations meant to keep them and other motorists safe, but these rules are not always followed. Most truck drivers are paid per mile and will put themselves through grueling driving periods for a higher paycheck. Unfortunately, this creates fatigue and a lack of attention while behind the wheel, which is one of the main reasons why trucking accidents occur. Other causes generally include:
- Equipment failure
- Negligent maintenance or upkeep
- Negligent driving in poor weather conditions
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Improper loading
- Dangerous merges at on- and off-ramps
