Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

Truck Accident Statistics

A fully loaded 18-wheeler can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Consequently, the ability of trucks to maneuver on the highway is limited by their size and speed, and the driver’s ability to see other vehicles. In fact, it can take a fully loaded truck traveling at 55 mph up to 200 feet to stop and 450 feet if the brakes are hot. Trucks also need extra space to execute turns, often veering into an oncoming lane to negotiate intersections and turns. When speeding, driver fatigue, or improper training is added to the mix, negligence on the part of a truck driver can have fatal consequences.

Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents

Trucking companies are under pressure to deliver cargo faster and cheaper. In order to meet customer demand, tired truck drivers, improperly loaded semis and poorly trained new employees can be put on the road.

At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, Todd Leonard has been committed to providing outstanding representation for over 25 years concerning all types of trucking accidents. We know you may be suffering, so we fight to protect your rights and assist you in receiving the compensation you deserve in your time of need.

Some of the most common injuries individuals face after devastating truck accidents can include:

Important Safety TipsCommon Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck drivers have a legal duty to operate their commercial trucks, big rigs, or 18-wheelers carefully at all times, since they pose a significant risk to others if they become involved in an accident. Truck drivers must constantly be aware of their surroundings and exercise caution, knowing the potential danger trucks have to other vehicles.

This is why even the slightest mistake, such as failing to turn on the signal to indicate a lane change or having a broken brake light, can have devastating consequences for trucks traveling on the road. This can be particularly true when the trucker is driving in a high-traffic zone.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

Abrupt lane changes and merging improperly into oncoming traffic, or making an abrupt left turn in front of a truck

Driving between large trucks or unsafely passing another truck or vehicle

Failing to adjust speed when a truck is merging or changing lanes

Improper judgment of a truck’s speed

Unsafely passing another truck or vehicle, or driving in a “No-Zone,” which is the area of a truck where the driver has very little or limited visibility

Driver fatigue, a poorly maintained truck, or inadequate training
