Mobile Truck Accident Attorneys
Alabama Semi Truck Accident Lawyers
Truck accident cases are big and complex, like the semi's themselves. The damage is always worse than in a car accident, the defense legal team is more aggressive, and there is more money at stake. In addition, state and federal regulations become relevant.
A loaded semi can weigh as much as 80,000 lbs. The momentum behind one of these on the highway can destroy almost anything in its path. Literally thousands of people are killed in fatal truck accidents each year. When a death occurs in a truck accident, it is the occupants of a car that are killed 95% of the time, not the trucker.
Aside from fatalities, the injuries caused by truck accidents are severe, including head and spinal cord injuries, amputations and paralysis. When someone suffers a permanent injury, the cost of care over a lifetime is astronomical. The victim may need millions of dollars in compensation.
Some accidents are due to top-heavy loading of the truck, or unstable cargo. The cargo itself may be hazardous, causing fire or other added dangers. If the party who loaded the trailer improperly is at fault, we will include them in the lawsuit.
