Adept Handling Of Catastrophic Trucking Accident Cases

Trucking accidents are unfortunately common and can result in disastrous consequences. Because of the size of the vehicles, an 18-wheeler crash can result in catastrophic injuries involving a large number of victims. Such injuries can include head trauma and brain injury, paralysis, severe burns, broken bones, lacerations and death. Many crashes resulting in such injuries are entirely avoidable.

Attorney Raul Rodriguez has extensive experience handling tractor-trailer accidents. With more than 30 years of personal injury representation, he has handled over 10,000 cases, so Raul understands the court process and what steps you will need to take to recover compensation. In every matter he handles, he provides one-on-one representation for his clients.

How Truck Accidents Occur

Truck accidents usually happen due to a number of factors. Truck drivers may be untrained in operating such large vehicles. Speed often plays a role in crashes as trucks can be difficult to stop. Trucks are also difficult to maneuver while negotiating turns. Trucking companies may fail to maintain the vehicle properly. And employers sometimes ask their drivers to work long hours and drive hundreds of miles during shifts. This can lead to fatigue.
