Trucking Accidents

Trucks are among the most frightening road hazards and are a major risk to road travelers. Accidents involving trucks can have catastrophic consequences, resulting in serious injuries or even death. These incidents can occur due to various factors, such as driver fatigue, inadequate maintenance practices, or defective equipment.

According to the National Safety Council, a total of 4,965 lives were tragically lost in large-truck crashes in 2020, up 31% since 2011. The majority of fatalities resulting from these crashes are individuals occupying other vehicles (71%), followed by truck occupants themselves (17%), and non-occupants such as pedestrians and cyclists (12%).

In addition to handling tractor-trailer or semi-trailer accidents, we handle accidents involving common carrier trucks such as UPS, Fed-Ex, and Amazon delivery services. Litigation involving trucks, common carriers, and delivery services have their own unique set of rules, regulations and complex issues and require experienced counsel.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a trucking accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately and contact an experienced attorney. U&C can help you navigate the legal process and pursue compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

Working with a knowledgeable attorney can help you build a strong case and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
