An accident involving a large semi-truck can have devastating consequences. A fully loaded large semi-truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds, while the average automobile weighs only about 3,000 pounds. A traffic accident involving a car and a large commercial truck can cause serious, even fatal injuries. Tragically, in the United States, someone is injured or killed in a commercial truck accident every 16 minutes.

Common Causes for Truck Accidents
There are many possible reasons a truck accident can occur. Perhaps the driver was rushing to meet a deadline or was inexperienced. It could be the driver was tired due to driving for too long a time. The truck could have been overloaded or suffered a mechanical failure. The weather plays a part in many truck accidents, as well. In addition, large trucks have many blind spots, and truckers often cannot see a small car next to them.
Truck Accident Lawsuits
If you or a member of your family has been injured in a truck accident, it's important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. The attorney can act immediately to preserve crucial evidence such as the driver's log book, police reports, witness statements, previous violations of regulations by the trucking company, maintenance records, and the truck's "black box."
The black box records data before, during, and after an accident and could be useful in determining many factors surrounding the collision.
Truck accident cases can be more complex than automobile accidents. It can be confusing to figure out who exactly was at fault in a truck accident. A company may have leased the truck, or the driver may have been an independent contractor. An experienced truck accident attorney is able to identify liability in even the most complicated cases and take swift legal action against the responsible party or parties.
