Were You Seriously Injured in a Truck Accident?

Commercial vehicles are large and potentially dangerous if involved in an auto accident which is why they are subject to many federal regulations. After all, collisions with these large commercial vehicles will cause a great deal of damage and in some cases death.

The Phoenix truck accident lawyers at Miller Kory Rowe LLP are here to help you. Our team is very familiar with the various laws and regulations that pertain to the trucking industry. When you hire our law firm, you will have no problem receiving the help you need throughout the process.

Trucking Accidents and What Commonly Causes Them
While each trucking accident is different, there are several common causes like:
Among the most common causes of trucking accidents is driver fatigue. Truck drivers are often on tight, possibly unrealistic, deadlines. Some truckers think they can avoid sleep to deliver a load ahead of schedule even though regulations strictly require sufficient rest. Not getting enough sleep will put the truck driver and other motorists at risk. Lack of sleep can cause slower reaction times and can lead to a truck driver dozing off at the wheel.
Lack of Truck Maintenance
Just like any other type of vehicle, a commercial truck requires the right amount of maintenance to stay running safely. If the company that owns the truck avoids doing maintenance to save a few dollars, they should be held liable should an accident occur. Failing to check the tires or replace worn-out braking components can lead to unsafe driving conditions.
Driving while distracted is one of the biggest problems facing American drivers. When truck drivers take their eyes off of the road for a split second, they are putting their lives and the lives of others in danger. Trying to check an email or respond to a text message has caused many trucking accidents. If you have been injured in a trucking accident caused by distracted driving, then contact Miller Kory Rowe LLP to find out how to pursue a lawsuit.
Every commercial truck on the road has a maximum weight capacity instituted by the manufacturer of the rig. If these maximum weight guidelines are ignored, an accident is a substantial probability. If the trailer on the back of a big rig is too heavy, it will prohibit the driver from bringing the rig to a stop in a hurry. This can lead to the driver jackknifing the trailer or slamming into a passenger vehicle due to their inability to stop.
