Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer - Big Rig Injury Collisions

Roadway safety is a concern to all Americans. The Bill Connor Law Firm handles Commercial Trucking Litigation. Trucking litigation involves claims against careless truck drivers and the companies who hire them.
Collisions caused by the truckers' negligence often leads to disastrous and catastrophic injuries on the road, such as brain injury or even death. There were 3,021 Fatalities caused by truck collisions in 2012. In 72% of all accidents involving a truck that year, the fatality victim was in the other vehicle involved.


There are many types of truck accidents:


  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Broadside collisions
  • Right-hand (when a driver attempts to pass a Commercial truck on the right side, not knowing the truck is making a wide right turn)
  • Crossing the center line or "bump collisions"
  • Changing Lanes
  • Trucks stopped or stalled on busy streets
  • Jack-knifed trucks
  • Truck drivers losing control of the vehicle
  • Hit and Run

There is a unique set of laws and regulations that are designed specifically to protect motorists from the negligent actions of a commercial truck driver. Federal and state regulations require truckers to keep detailed journals about breaks and rest to prevent driver fatigue on the highway.

There are also other specific rules for heavy trucks including the correct way to materials the truck is carrying as well as rules on traveling speeds - and safety when passing other vehicles.
