Any kind of car accident is dangerous and can leave victims seriously injured. The additional power of a semitruck can increase the potential damage in a collision.
The results may be severe injuries or death in a fatal truck accident. If you or a loved one has been involved in a tractor-trailer collision, it is important to contact an experienced attorney right away to get the representation you deserve.

Be Prepared To Be Pressured To Settle
You should consult with your lawyer immediately after being involved in a truck accident. Trucking company representatives and insurance company agents will try to contact you and get you to negotiate directly with them, but their goal is to mitigate your claim and lower your amount of compensation.
These representatives are skilled at negotiation and accident investigation. They will try to persuade you to accept unsatisfactory resolutions, or they will use things that you say or sign against you in the future.
These representatives and agents are employed to save their companies money. Do not take any chances in your case. Contact the Stapleton Law Office right away and protect your rights.
Dangers Of Semitruck Accidents
There are plenty of reasons why a truck accident can occur and why it can be more devastating than an accident in a passenger vehicle. Trucks weigh much more and carry much more force than other motor vehicles. This means they can do extraordinary amounts of damage to passengers when they are involved in a motor vehicle collision.
Accidents can occur for many reasons, including:
- Negligence on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company
- Aggressive driving
- The driver being over his or her allowed hours of service
- Failure to inspect tires, brake, lights and other parts of the engine
- Driver fatigue or distraction
- Illegal or unsecured loads
