The commercial trucking industry transports and delivers goods throughout the United States. Because the number of loads a trucking company delivers determines its profit, many companies impose deadlines on their drivers to increase the number of loads. Unfortunately, many of these deadlines force drivers to drive at dangerous speeds, drive over their daily maximum hours, drive while tired and fatigued or drive while under the influence of medications or other drugs. As a result of the pressure and unreasonable demands trucking companies place on their drivers, hundreds of collisions caused by commercial trucking companies occur every day resulting in serious injuries and often death.

Our attorneys have handled cases against trucking companies with issues including driver fatigue, driver distraction, drivers exceeding their federal hour restrictions, drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tractors that have been improperly maintained, trailers that have been improperly loaded and/or overloaded, speed violations and failure to use proper lights.



Traffic was halted on the highway when a tractor trailer suddenly struck the plaintiffs’ vehicle, resulting in multiple fatalities.


The plaintiff was a passenger in a vehicle that collided with the rear of a tractor trailer. The tractor trailer’s ICC bar (rear impact guard) broke, allowing the vehicle in which plaintiff was a passenger to underride the trailer, crushing the vehicle. As a result, the plaintiff sustained fatal injuries.


Severe injuries sustained when a tractor trailer failed to stop for a vehicle traveling directly in front of it; in an attempt to avoid the collision, the tractor trailer entered the oncoming lane of traffic, striking the plaintiffs’ vehicle.
