Local Truck Accident Attorney Serving the Antelope Valley
Many large corporations use semi-trucks to transport goods or passengers. Even though commercial truck drivers are supposed to drive with the utmost caution at a safe speed, many trucks get into accidents. If you have been involved in a truck accident, as a driver or passenger, Kistler Law Firm can help to get the responsible drier accountable and collect compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Driving a commercial motor vehicle requires a higher level of knowledge, skills, and ability than those necessary to operate a standard car. Unfortunately, many truck drivers on the road are unqualified or improperly trained.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving, particularly when using company communication devices while driving
- Improper driver safety training
- Mass hiring campaigns of truck drivers
- Overloaded or unsecured cargo
- Speeding to the destination
- Driver fatigue Help is Available
Drivers on the freeway are encouraged to give commercial trucks ample space with the understanding that these large vehicles cannot maneuver or change their speed as easily as regular vehicles. However, all the care in the work cannot protect you from a negligent, reckless, or aggressive driver. If you have been injured in a truck accident, please contact Kistler Law Firm to speak with a rideshare accident attorney about your rights to recover compensation for the harm done to you.
