Truck Accident Injury Attorney
Zealously Advocating for Our Injured Clients.
Sharing the road with large trucks is a scary, but oftentimes necessary, experience. Coming up alongside of these vehicles, you can easily feel the sheer size, force, and power that they carry. When a truck impacts with a car, the results are often catastrophic. Vehicles are destroyed, fatalities occur, serious injuries are sustained. In the wake of all this destruction, the truck’s insurance company will quickly look for any way to get out of paying for the terrible damage the truck caused. Fazli & Associates stand up to these big insurance companies. We hold them accountable and work to ensure our injured clients are properly compensated for their injuries.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds. The size and weight of these vehicles make them extremely dangerous. Unfortunately, drivers of these oversized vehicles do not always act with the care they should to keep everyone else on the roads safe. In fact, some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
Driving under the influence
Failure to yield right of way
These are all driver errors. The negligence of a truck driver can quickly lead to serious accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries. While truck driver negligence is a common cause of truck accidents, truck companies can also be negligent in ways that lead to truck accidents. For instance, if a truck company fails to properly maintain truck equipment, overloads or improperly loads trucks, or is habitually negligent in their hiring practices, the results can be seen in devastating accidents on the roads.
The negligent actions of truck drivers and truck companies lead to many different types of truck accidents, such as:
Head on collisions
Any of these accident types can leave those involved with serious and permanent injuries. Truck drivers and truck companies have a responsibility to others on the road to take all of the necessary safety precautions. When they fail to uphold this responsibility, and people are injured as a result, Fazli & Associates fights to hold them accountable for the damage they have inflicted on truck accident victims.
What Should I do If I Have Been Injured in a Truck Accident?
Large trucks such as tractor trailers, semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and other types of commercial vehicles can cause massive amounts of destruction when involved in an accident. The damages involved in these cases can be quite sizeable. Trucking companies know that they will be on the hook for paying out large sums of money because of the devastating injuries involved in an accident. This means that they will go to great lengths to try and protect themselves financially. A whole team of investigators will be assembled by the truck company and immediately dispatched to the scene of the accident. The investigators will gather every piece of evidence they can, always looking for potential loopholes that will relieve them of liability. This is why it is of the utmost important that you contact Fazli & Associates as soon as you can after being injured in a truck accident.
The truck company will use vast resources to try and fight your claim and that fight will begin right away. They do not want to pay you what you are owed for the injuries and losses you have sustained in the accident. Fazli & Associates will get to work immediately in not only investigating your case, but protecting your legal right to full and fair compensation for the damages you have incurred as a result of the truck accident.
