BIRMINGHAM TRUCK & TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENTS

Birmingham Truck & Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys

Truck accidents on Alabama roads and freeways accounted for 2,367 injuries and 118 fatalities in a recent calendar year.* Unfortunately, many of these accidents and the subsequent deaths and injuries could have been avoided if it weren’t for the irresponsible actions of some drivers, their employers and the people responsible for maintaining commercial trucking vehicles.

PASSENGERS HAVE LITTLE CHANCE IN TRUCK VS. COMMUTER VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

It is all too often the people in the lighter, smaller vehicle – people minding their own business trying to get home, go on vacation or visit family – who suffer the injurious and sometimes fatal consequences of  irresponsible driver behavior.

In these instances, liability goes far beyond the driver of the truck themselves. The company employing the driver may have imposed unrealistic schedules requiring the driver to be on the road far longer than the legal limit. The fleet maintenance provider may have been  careless in its duties to properly maintain the truck, contributing to the accident.

An experienced trucking attorney has the knowledge and resources to examine all facets of a truck accident in order to clearly identify the cause of the accident and precisely attribute  any unsafe actions to the resulting injuries or deaths.
