Semi Truck Accidents Are Devistating

Truck accidents pose a significant threat on our roadways, and the statistics surrounding these incidents are concerning. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in the United States, thousands of people are killed and tens of thousands are injured in accidents involving large trucks each year. The size and weight disparity between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles often result in severe injuries and fatalities.

One of the key factors contributing to truck accidents is driver error, which includes issues such as fatigue, distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving. Commercial truck drivers have demanding schedules and face pressures to meet tight deadlines, which can lead to driver fatigue and increased risks on the road. Additionally, the size and maneuverability challenges of large trucks can make it more difficult for drivers to respond quickly to unexpected situations.

Another significant aspect of truck accidents is the potential involvement of multiple parties. Beyond the truck driver, other parties that may be held liable for a truck accident include the trucking company, the truck’s owner, maintenance providers, and even manufacturers in cases involving defective equipment or parts. Determining liability in truck accident cases requires a thorough investigation to identify all responsible parties.

At MacCloskey Kesler & Associates, we have extensive experience in handling truck accident cases. We understand the complexities involved in these claims and the need to build a strong case to establish liability. Our dedicated team works diligently to gather evidence, consult with experts, and negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of our clients. We are committed to seeking justice for those who have been injured or lost loved ones in truck accidents and pursuing the full compensation they deserve for their damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
