Let a skilled Oregon semi truck accident lawyer put brakes on your Oregon losses
Authorities estimate that yearly this country suffers 500,000 accidents involving a large truck or semi truck. Such accidents cause 5,000 traffic deaths and many more injuries. The enormous toll is due in part to the massive size of a semi truck, big rig, 18 wheeler or tractor trailer. Often, drivers and passengers of far smaller vehicles such as cars have scant chance when hit by a semi truck. These victims and their families may need a knowledgeable Oregon semi truck accident lawyer for support.
Each year, thousands of Americans are injured and killed in traffic accidents involving semi trucks and other large trucks such as 18 wheelers, tractor trailers and big rigs. Such tragedies often are due to negligence by the semi truck driver or the semi truck owner. Victims have a legal right to pursue compensation in a semi truck lawsuit with help from a skilled Oregon semi truck accident lawyer.
Some of the chief reasons for a semi truck accident are operator weariness and driver inattentiveness. Semi truck operators often work lengthy hours so that they may meet delivery deadlines, and such long hours can cause sleepiness, which many times leads to a traffic collision. In addition, semi truck operators may be distracted because of using cell phones to call or text, while others have been determined to be using alcohol or other drugs, and are guilty of tailgating and other reckless habits. Your Oregon semi truck accident lawyer can attack such wrongdoing in a semi truck accident legal action.
As well as operator mistakes, semi truck collisions may arise because of a large truck's maintenance or repair inadequacies. A semi truck, big rig, 18 wheeler or tractor trailer also may be overburdened, making it unsafe and more difficult to operate. These huge trucks also are prone to blow-outs of tires, creating traffic calamities. Whatever the cause of a semi truck accident, your Oregon semi truck accident attorney can seek just and full economic recovery for your semi truck accident costs.
