More and more truck / 18-wheeler accidents happen each year. As the demand for goods of all sorts grows, the need to transport ever increasing volumes of these goods grows, and with it the number of these enormous trucks on our already crowded road system becomes ever higher. Statistically more trucks mean more accidents, and these are rarely trivial. The enormous weight and the fact that they cannot stop or maneuver very fast means that if the chance of a collision presents itself a truck / 18-wheeler accident is almost inevitable.

The transportation business is highly competitive, and often a truck accident will occur because commercial pressures lead to transportation companies, and truckers, taking shortcuts or cutting corners in an attempt to meet tight deadlines and reduce operating costs. Truck transport is highly regulated, this is a good thing because it means that when a truck/18-wheeler accident occurs, there is often a detailed a paper trail to follow. At The Goolsby Law Firm we know how to follow that trail, properly investigate your accident, and gather the facts necessary to present a strong case to achieve the maximum compensation for you.

Injuries caused in truck / 18 wheeler accidents are often very severe, with many suffering devastating neck or back injuries that can lead to a very long term need for care and rehabilitation. This coupled with loss of earnings, damage to your property or vehicle, and many other costs can mean the compensation you need is quite substantial. All too often these accidents can lead to loss of life, and in these circumstances the relatives left behind can also claim for the wrongful deathcaused.

There are increasing pressures on companies to make on-time speedy deliveries, while at the same time maintaining the cheapest rates possible. Many companies achieve this by streamlining their operations, and become more efficient. Unfortunately some achieve cost savings by encouraging their drivers to break speed limits and spend too much time at the wheel, or even by letting the standards of their vehicle maintenance drop. A fatigued driver going too fast in a truck that isn’t in top condition is a very dangerous thing, and an accident is inevitable.
