The Farha Law Firm handles significant road accidents involving large commercial vehicles and catastrophic injuries

Types of Accidents Involving Large Commercial Vehicles

  • Truck Accidents
  • Semi-Truck Accident Injuries
  • Commercial Vehicle Accidents

As part of a typical large commercial vehicle case, we will investigate the cause of the truck accident so we can hold the negligent parties accountable for their actions. A truck accident may involve a number of insurance companies. In some cases, there are separate insurance policies for the cab and the trailer.

We can put resources and experience to work for you after an accident involving any type of truck, including, but not limited to:

  • Tractor trailers
  • 18-wheelers
  • Big rigs
  • Cement trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Fire engines
  • Other types of trucks

Truck Accidents

While each accident is different, some causes of accidents are more common than others. Stop-and-go traffic may lead to a rear-end crash caused by a distracted or fatigued driver. A trucker under the influence of alcohol or drugs may speed through a crowded intersection or fail to yield while merging onto a highway.

You should be focusing on your health and recovery rather than having to represent yourself against the insurance company. The trucking company and its insurance carrier might not be looking out for your best interests, but the Farha Law Firm always looks out for your best interests.

Truck drivers should understand how to operate their big rigs safely, however, many truck drivers are not trained or educated correctly in order to safely operate a large commercial vehicle. .

If you were injured through no fault of your own or lost a loved one, you shouldn’t have to foot the bill for a truck driver or trucking company’s negligent or reckless behavior.

Truck drivers are required to drive thousands of miles each week to keep up with shipping and receiving demands. A trucker may choose to drive while fatigued. He or she may use drugs or alcohol while behind the wheel or become distracted by a cell phone. A trucking company may cut corners and put others in danger, failing to inspect or maintain important safety components such as brakes or tires.

Semi-Truck Accident Injuries

Semi-truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. The enormous size of an 18-wheeler typically causes a victim to sustain much more severe than a similar accident involving two passenger cars. A semi-truck accident injury may change the victim’s life forever in cases of:

  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burn injury

Commercial Vehicle Accidents

When a commercial vehicle such as a semi truck is in a crash, the truck is typically heavier and larger than the other vehicle involved. This may lead to serious injury or even a wrongful death. The following are a few examples of commercial vehicles:

  • Delivery trucks
  • Tow trucks
  • Full-size pick-up trucks with trailers
  • Cement trucks
  • Waste disposal trucks

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a large commercial vehicle, then you may be eligible for compensation. This compensation can be used to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other expenses incurred as a result of these unsafe conditions.
