Serious Injuries From Trucking Accidents

Collisions with commercial-sized vehicles such as tractor-trailers and semitrucks are often catastrophic crashes that, sadly, can cause life-altering injuries. The sheer size difference makes it almost impossible for other motorists to be protected against a serious injury if a crash occurs on a highway.

After a serious crash, the team at The Law Offices of David L. Milligan, APC, is ready to provide guidance on your behalf. We are a respected personal injury firm in Fresno that represents individuals throughout the Central San Joaquin Valley who have suffered life-altering injuries in motor vehicle and trucking accidents.

Causes Of 18-Wheeler Accidents, Semitruck Collisions And Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Truck drivers are paid to be on the road for long hours. Carrying a heavily loaded truck requires cautious driving and pertinent attention to what’s happening on the road. If a driver fails to pay attention, he or she may not be able to brake in time to prevent an accident. Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
    • Use of cellphones, GPS or other electronics
  • Fatigue
  • Failure to brake in time
  • Overloaded trucks
    • Tire blowouts or other accidents caused by a truck being overloaded
  • Substance abuse
    • Use of drugs or alcohol while on the job
