Oklahoma City Truck Accident Attorneys
The well-being of our nation’s entire economy is heavily dependent on interstate shipping. For this reason, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and tractor trailer vehicles flood our highways and inherently pose dangers to the rest of us on the road. These have the capability to weigh over 80,000 pounds and travel 80mph, but are highly limited in their abilities to maneuver and stop on command.
These characteristics of commercial trucks make them automatically dangerous, and this is even before human error has a chance to step in and increase the level of danger posed on ordinary highway occupants. If you or a loved one were injured in a commercial truck accident, our Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys want to help you recover the compensation you and your family deserve.
- Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Drunk driving or distracted driving
- Improperly balanced load
- Overloaded tractor trailers
- Fatigued driving to meet deadlines
- Malfunctioning parts on the truck
Truck drivers are under an enormous amount of pressure to meet deadlines, and this often influences their decision to violate the federal resting policies in place and fudge the information in their log books.
