18-Wheeler Accident

At the Z&P Law Group, we understand how devastating an accident with an 18-wheeler truck can be and we are dedicated to assisting you through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. Our attorneys provide answers and a variety of legal options to help you seek justice. 
We know that professional commercial truck drivers are expected to obey all laws such as exercising proper defensive driving, ensuring highway courtesy including proper use of headlights, avoiding blocking driveways and entrances, and preventing mistakes of others from becoming an accident. Regardless of why trucking accidents occur, they can cause horrible injuries and even deaths. These accidents can leave victims disabled, seeking costly medical treatments, rehabilitation, and possible lifetime care. Commercial drivers must take reasonable precautions to avoid hazardous situations and be prepared to keep out of the way of others who make mistakes.

The Most Common Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents:

  • Failure to properly accommodate blind spots
  • Brake failure
  • Exhaustion/fatigue on the part of the driver
  • Excessive speed
  • Failure to follow the rules of the road
  • Tire failure or separation
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Unsecured cargo or freight shifting in the payload section
  • Unsafe driving practices
  • Improper or inadequate maintenance of the vehicle
