TRUCK & COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Experienced Nebraska Truck Accident Attorneys
Large trucks and commercial vehicles are responsible for hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries every year in the United States. For victims and their families, even non-fatal truck accidents can result in long lasting consequences requiring extensive medical treatment and an extensive leave of absence from work.
Trucking companies should be responsible and pay for damage caused by their drivers, but in many cases they are instead looking for ways to limit their liability, thus lowering the amount of compensation victims receive. In other cases, trucking companies will try to settle with victims for much less than they deserve. Unfortunately, people who do not fully understand their injuries and how much money they will need to pay for medical care may accept these settlement offers and jeopardize the right to pursue additional compensation in the future.
The personal injury lawyers of the Cada Law Firm represent the victims of truck accidents on I-80 and other highways and roads in Lincoln and surrounding areas of Nebraska. We also represent family members who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents.
Causes of Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Truck accidents, like accidents involving other automobiles, have a variety of causes, many of which are the result of error or negligence on behalf of truck drivers or their trucking companies. These causes often include:
- Driver fatigue
- Drug or alcohol use
- Insufficient driver training
- Poor truck maintenance and inspection
- Unrealistic deadlines and driver schedules
- Aggressive driving
- Improper loading and failure to meet required safety regulations
In addition to accidents involving semi trucks, we also represent the victims of accidents involving commercial vehicles like delivery vans, construction vehicles, taxis, limousines, buses and many others.
Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your truck accident to determine how the accident occurred, what contributed to the accident and who is at fault. This includes looking at the scene of the crash, talking with witnesses and looking at other important evidence.
