Are You a Victim of a Tractor Trailer Accident?

Accidents involving tractor trailers frequently result in severe injuries and fatalities. There are many reasons why trailer tractor accidents occur. They have significant blind spots, are heavier and larger, stop more slowly and require more concentration and effort to operate. Unfortunately, when truck drivers become tired on their lengthy journeys or become distracted and reckless, innocent victims frequently suffer the repercussions.

Leading Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents

Most truck drivers are highly qualified professionals who have logged thousands of safe miles on the road, yet accidents can happen. Some of the most common causes of tractor trailer accidents are:

  • Crossing lanes: Trucks that pass over the center line or veer off the road.
  • Speeding: Like other professions, driving a truck requires meeting deadlines. Sometimes the companies they work for give them insufficient time to fulfill their tasks and the drivers try to compensate for it by speeding up their rigs.
  • Improper loading: When a rig is improperly loaded or has loading faults, it becomes unstable. An overweight tractor trailer can also cause an accident.
  • Driver behavior: Driving while intoxicated, driving while sleepy or ill, driving aggressively and driving while distracted (such as using a cellphone or fiddling with the radio).
  • Poor vehicle maintenance: Tractor trailer accidents frequently result from faulty components and truck flaws, such as issues with brakes, transmissions, tires, wheels and steering wheels.

Truck Accident Investigation

An inquiry into the events that led to the truck accident is required, like any other vehicle accident. In addition, trucking is governed by federal and state laws, which address issues such as driver hours and equipment safety. Therefore, trucking companies must keep such information, and it will be necessary to locate and examine this data. Critical information can be found in the following locations:

  • Maintenance and Training Records
  • Dashboard cameras
  • Electronic Logs
  • On-Board Telemetry

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
