TRUCKING ACCIDENTS AT HUGHES & MASHINSKI, P.C.
Truck accidents involve heavier vehicles than most other types of accidents. When these huge tractor trailers are being driven 70 miles per hour on the highway, they are more difficult to stop and even more dangerous when passing smaller vehicles. If you have been injured as a result of a truck driver’s negligence, contact Hughes & Mashinski. We have years of experience handling accident claims and we will fight for the compensation you deserve. Our Plains attorneys have the knowledge and resources to take on large trucking companies and their insurers.
What Qualifies as a Trucking Accident?
As a result of their size and weight, truck accidents often cause more disastrous injuries than a regular car accident. Because of this, federal law establishes strict and detailed standards that trucking companies and their drivers must meet. Most of these federal regulations are in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. In some cases, the negligent truck driver may have violated this regulation, and it is this violation that caused your accident. Regardless of how your accident occurred, if you were injured by a truck or tractor trailer, you need to speak with an attorney who is familiar with the federal and state laws that relate to trucking companies and their drivers. So call us today at 570-823-0101. We can help get you the compensation you are owed.
Types of Injuries Seen After Trucking Accidents
A tractor trailer can weigh anywhere between 12,000 and 80,000 pounds, around twenty-five times the weight of an average car. Truck accidents often result in devastating injuries to those riding in passenger cars or motorcycles. These injuries can include, but are not limited to:
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Partial/Complete Paralysis
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- And even Wrongful Death
