Truck drivers and commercial truck drivers are usually on a shipment deadline. They travel across the state or even country to deliver goods. With that being said, some drivers will drive through the night to ensure their shipment is delivered on time. Fatigued or drowsy drivers have delayed reactions and cause many truck accidents. However, there are rules that prohibit drivers to drive more than eleven hours at a time without a break. Trucks and semi-truck drivers do tend to speed on the highway and freeways. It is common for speeding truck drivers to cause accidents due to their delayed breaking reaction in critical times. Reactive accidents are common as well. Truck drivers tend to react and break quickly due to an accident that occurred in front of them. They react and crash into nearby cars that were able to slow down in time. Distracted driving is negligent driving. It is your right to seek financial compensation for the damages and injuries you’ve suffered from a negligent driver. Fact is, most accidents today are caused by distracted driving.

Hire a Truck Accident Attorney:
Why should I hire a truck accident attorney to settle my injury claim? A question we hear too often. It is crucial to know that most trucks and semi-trucks are owned by commercial companies who have larger policy limits. To seek maximum compensation, you will likely need a personal injury attorney representing you. If equipment failed on the truck which caused the accident and caused your injury, multiple parties could be at fault. Not all truck accident attorneys know the ins and outs of dealing with commercial insurance companies. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have successfully settled over 5,000 cases and recovered over $200 Million for accident victims. We take pride in giving our injured victims the same quality legal representation that large insurance corporations have. Truth is, most accidents could have been avoided. It is our duty as legal representatives to determine liability, and help get you the maximum compensation for your accident.
Do Not Suffer From a Trucking Accident!
Without seeking legal representation, insurance adjusters will offer a settlement and will likely give you an offer that is not enough for the injuries you’ve incurred. The job of an insurance adjuster is to diminish the value of a claim and settle a claim as soon as possible. The truck accident lawyers will help facilitate treatment with top notch doctors and medical professionals in your area. If you cannot afford treatment we can facilitate treatment with doctors that work on a lien basis. There is no risk for hiring one of our San Jose truck accident lawyers. We work on contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid unless there is a settlement for your injruy claim. Let us fight for your rights!
