Truck Accident Lawyers Malden, Boston

Commercial trucking is a booming industry. Thousands of large semi trucks travel the roads each day, delivering products of all kinds nationwide. Unfortunately, the more trucks are on the road, the more accidents they cause. Additionally, because trucks are larger, heavier, and less maneuverable than passenger vehicles, they tend to cause more damage when there is a wreck. Expert legal representation is imperative if you or a loved one is involved in a truck accident. Our lawyers have practiced in Malden, Massachusetts, near Boston, for over five decades, so we have the resources and experience needed to make the most of your case.

Truck Accident Causes

When truckers and their employers take these risks and put other motorists in danger, our truck accident lawyers hold them to account for the damage they cause. Truckers who drive too fast and violate other traffic laws take risks with their own lives and those of others. Though some trucking companies encourage responsible behavior among their drivers, others encourage them to push the limit in order to maximize profits. They may also skimp on maintenance in violation of the law, leaving vehicles unsafe and prone to malfunction.

Because trucking is a business that places a premium on speed, drivers are under pressure to push themselves beyond the limits of their endurance. Despite regulations limiting the number of hours a trucker can stay on the road, many accidents are caused by truck drivers who are too fatigued to operate their vehicles safely. Some may fall asleep or fail to react. Still others rely on powerful drugs to stay awake, which may be even more hazardous.

Liability in Trucking Accidents

Commercial truck drivers who take these risks are responsible for the consequences of their actions like anyone else. When a reckless trucker injures you or someone you love, the consequences can be dire: large trucks tend to cause more serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, with effects that may last a lifetime. At Rodman, Rodman & Sandman in Malden, Massachusetts, our truck accident lawyers are forceful advocates for Boston-area injury victims. We will defend your rights vigorously to ensure that you get every dollar to which you are entitled.

Winning a Truck Accident Lawsuit

Truck accident cases are often more complicated than auto accidents. This is partly due to the sheer destruction at the site of a truck accident. Often, sophisticated reconstruction techniques are required to determine exactly what happened. We have the resources to ensure that your accident is reconstructed completely and accurately.

Another factor complicating truck accident lawsuits is the number of potential defendants involved. In many cases, multiple parties are liable for your injuries, including the driver, the company that employed the driver, and other employees of the company. There will also be negotiations with the insurance companies. If you or a member of your family has been seriously injured, you should be focused on recovery. Our truck accident lawyers will work hard on your behalf, doing everything possible to maximize the value of your case so you can focus on getting better.
