truck accidents


Due to size and speed, trucking accidents can cause some of the most catastrophic injuries imaginable. Crush injuries, amputations, traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death are often associated with collisions involving 18-wheeler trucks, delivery trucks and other, large commercial vehicles.

According to reports from the National Transportation Safety Bureau (NTSB) the most common causes of trucking accidents are driver fatigue, excessive speed, improper loading of vehicle, lack of compliance with federal and state safety regulations and equipment failure.

Investigating a truck crash scene immediately after it happens is essential to the determination of negligence. You need the expertise of Attorney John C. Dorn who is experienced in knowing what evidence to preserve before it is compromised or destroyed. Additionally, driver logs and maintenance records should be carefully reviewed, and compliance with applicable safety standards should be assessed.
