Dump Truck Accidents in Alabama

Rainsville, AL - Injuries in Dump Truck Crash on AL-35

Semi-trucks are well known for causing some of the most catastrophic accidents on Alabama’s roadways. Although a variety of factors might cause these collisions, the most common ones are irresponsible driving, poorly maintained trucks, tired truck drivers, and excessive traffic. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), 4,440 large trucks and buses are involved in collisions on American roads and highways every year. A University of Alabama study states that there were 7,782 tractor-trailer crashes in the state last year, resulting in 2,184 injuries and 89 fatalities. There are more than 6,000 trucking companies in Alabama, and semi-trucks are often seen driving around the state. When a serious trucking accident takes place, you need to be ready to defend your legal rights by working closely with a trained lawyer. 

Handling a personal injury lawsuit by yourself can be challenging, and these cases become much more complex when a large semi-truck is involved. You require the assistance of an experienced attorney to defend your legal rights. There will be more than just a careless truck driver to contend with. Trucking accident lawsuits involve multiple parties, such as the firm that owns the truck or hires the driver. These organizations will have legal teams ready to defend their interests, so you need someone fighting for you to level the playing field. This is often the only way to make sure your legal rights are protected and that you get the full recovery you are owed.
