Semi-Truck Accidents in Alabama

Creola, AL - Injuries in Semi Crash on Gen WK Wilson Jr Bridge

When you share the road with a large commercial truck, there is a significant risk of life-changing injuries. These massive vehicles contribute to hundreds of thousands of crashes each year, resulting in thousands of fatalities. Alabama roads and highways are commonly traveled by commercial vehicles. According to a recent University of Alabama research on semi-truck accidents, in a single year, 7,782 tractor-trailer incidents resulted in 2,184 injuries and 89 fatalities. Many of these accidents involve drowsy truck drivers who are pushed to work long hours on the road, increasing the risk of a serious collision. If you or someone close to you is injured in a trucking accident, you need to partner with a skilled lawyer who has a proven history of handling these types of cases. 

A truck accident may result in very serious injuries. Additionally, there are a number of state and federal standards that truckers and trucking businesses must abide by. Even with these in place, occasionally, these regulations are disregarded, which leads to an accident that could have been prevented. You cannot just trust any auto accident lawyer because of these factors. You require an experienced legal team that has a track record of winning damages for victims of 18-wheeler accidents. It can be hard to get the full recovery you are owed when you pursue a case alone, and it is important that you are ready to get the most out of your case by working closely with a trained lawyer.
