Choose the Best Injury Lawyer Who Brings in Experts and Preserves Evidence
Tractor-trailers are among the largest vehicles on the road today, weighing over 10,000+ lbs., and when they are involved in accidents, the damage can be utterly devastating. Every year there are approximately 500,000 large trucks involved in crashes resulting in an average of 5,000 fatalities. One out of every eight fatalities occurs as a result of a truck collision. Do not become a statistic!
Most tractor-trailer fatalities occur on rural, non-divided 2 lane roads.
Some factors that increase the likelihood of a tractor-trailer crash include:
- Impaired Driver
- Speed limits over 55 mph
- Poor Weather
- Curvy Roads
- Faulty Equipment
- Overweight Trucks and Trailers
The large size, extremely heavy loads, and longer braking distances required to stop are factors that place tractor-trailer accidents in a class all by themselves. Injuries suffered by victims of large truck accidents tend to be very serious and the laws and regulations that apply to tractor-trailers are complicated. There are books of regulations for the trucking industry. You need someone who knows and understands those regulations.
Attorney Sims brings in his team of professional experts who are able to arrive on the scene immediately to preserve evidence, take pictures, examine the vehicles involved, and interview witnesses. It is important to access this information immediately before the trucker or trucking company has had an opportunity to alter evidence or change documentation to reflect inaccurate information (or falsify records). There is a lot of financial liability at stake in a tractor-trailer injury claim. You deserve the best.
