Reckless behavior by truckers places everyone on the road at great risk. Data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has revealed that nearly 90% of all trucking accidents arise from driver error. In other words, if you are injured by a trucker, it’s a safe bet that the crash did not arise simply from uncontrollable mechanical problems or weather issues.
Naturally, if you or a loved one suffered injury, the first priority must be to seek prompt treatment for the injuries. However, evidence critical to establishing what actually happened has a tendency to disappear. Rapidly! As such, we strongly encourage anyone injured by a tractor trailer to speak with an experienced trucking attorney at the earliest opportunity.
