Based on their size and speed, trucks will likely cause the most devastating accidents on the road. Whether they merge and do not see you, fail to leave themselves appropriate braking distance or make a turn without the proper lane clearance, these huge trucks can destroy most smaller vehicles on the road. Whether your accident was caused by a construction vehicle, commercial truck, 18-wheeler or delivery truck, you need an experienced personal injury and auto accident lawyer on your side.
Our Glendale truck accident attorneys at The Law Offices of John Phebus have more than 20 years of experience guiding injured clients through the legal process. We will diligently fight for the recovery of compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering. In the event that you have lost a loved one in a tractor-trailer accident, we can file a wrongful death case.
Peoria Trucking Injury Attorneys
Truck accidents can be caused by numerous reasons, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Unbalanced loads
- Overweight or oversize loads
- Driver inexperience
- Mechanical failure
While it is true that truckers are professional drivers and carry a special driver’s license, this does not make them infallible. Their pay and continued employment are often tied to making deliveries on time or early. Unfortunately, this can lead to speeding, driving through the night or taking chances on the road to cut precious hours off their delivery schedule. While we understand the enormous pressure they are under, this does not excuse them from reckless or dangerous behavior.
