Taking On Trucking Companies For You
Getting into an accident with a commercial vehicle is different from other motor vehicle accidents. Aside from the size of the vehicles and the potential damage they can cause to your vehicle, commercial trucking companies go to great lengths to protect themselves. They will do everything in their power to disenfranchise their victims to avoid paying the necessary compensation.
At Devlin, Cittadino & Shaw, P.C., our attorneys will not let your case be swept under the rug. Our personal involvement has a direct effect on the outcomes for our clients. We will not be intimidated by large companies, because we are there to advocate for you.
Commercial trucking accidents can lead to catastrophic damage. The size and power of the vehicles mean your car is at a disadvantage. The same is not true when confronting the companies responsible for the trucks. Call us today at 609-557-7876 to learn more about how we can help.
What Makes Commercial Trucking So Dangerous?
Commercial truck drivers are supposed to be highly trained individuals with the skills to handle these large vehicles. There are many training programs across the country, but still every day more accidents happen due to a variety of avoidable reasons. Reasons such as:
- Driver fatigue: Overworked drivers falling asleep at the wheel
- Overloaded vehicles: Trucks with loads that are too heavy to handle
- Unqualified drivers: A lack of rigorous checks on driver qualifications
- High-pressure schedules: Ignoring regulated roads to try and make better time
The pressure on drivers to perform often causes them to make mistakes. When those mistakes harm you or your family, you may feel alone in your struggles. We have the hands-on approach to help you through the aftermath of a collision with a commercial truck.
