Washington, DC Truck Accidents

Due to their size and weight, large trucks have the potential to cause serious damage to anything in their path. The operators of these large vehicles must have specially designated licenses and undergo safety training. Despite this, many truck drivers have been known to act negligently, which puts all those around them at risk for injury, or worse. 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) found that in 2018, less than 20 percent of all large truck accident fatalities were the operators of those trucks; in other words, 82 percent of the fatalities were drivers and passengers of other cars on the road. 

Operators of large motor vehicles hold a significant responsibility to drive safely, and those who don’t must be held accountable.

  • Causes of Truck Accidents

    Large trucks inhibit the ability of the operator to see the road and the cars on it, making an already cumbersome vehicle that much more dangerous to surrounding drivers. This means that the operator has an even greater responsibility for the safety of those around them, and so negligence in any form is unacceptable. 

    Here are a few common causes of truck accidents:

    • Distracted driving
    • Driver fatigue
    • Lack of training
    • Vehicle defects
    • Unsecured loads
    • Driving under the influence
    • Failure to abide by weight restrictions

    Our experienced truck accident attorneys can investigate your accident, determine who is at fault, and work to assist you in securing compensation. You shouldn’t settle for less than you deserve, and neither will we. 

  • Truck Accident Lawsuits

    Truck accident lawsuits can vary greatly depending on the situation surrounding the accident. Our team can assess your case and determine which avenue will yield the best results. Here are a few common truck accident lawsuit strategies:

    • Negligence: Negligence is the leading factor in truck accidents. If the operator of a truck acted carelessly, and their actions resulted in your crash, your attorney can file a lawsuit for negligence.
    • Product liability: Defective or broken vehicle parts can also cause an accident. In these cases, your attorney can file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer, since they are liable for the components they put into the market. 
    • Wrongful Death: In the unfortunate case of a fatality, your attorney can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
  • How Can a Truck Accident Attorney Help?

    After an accident, the company responsible for the truck or their insurance provider will launch its own investigation into the crash. They’ll move quickly, as they’re trying to build a defense before you can. 

    You should retain a trusted attorney to complete your own investigation. Our team can collect evidence on your behalf, including accident reports and eyewitness interviews, that will make your case as strong as possible. We can also negotiate with the insurance provider of the at-fault party to ensure the settlement you receive is the full compensation amount that you deserve. If necessary, our trial-ready attorneys are ready and willing to take your case into the courtroom.
