Atascadero Trucking Accident Attorneys

Getting you through an 18-wheeler accident

When a car has an accident with a truck, the damage tends to be much more devastating than a typical car-versus-car accident. Because of their massive size and weight, trucks are harder to control and can cause serious injury. Factor in other issues that come along with tractor-trailers, such as driver fatigue or faulty loading jobs, and you will come to understand that your accident with an 18-wheeler may not have been your fault. James McKiernan Lawyers can help you find out why this happened to you.

Our lawyers explain 18-wheeler accidents

Trucking accidents happen for many reasons. Many times, the accident isn’t even your mistake. If you suffer injury in a truck accident, call on our San Luis Obspo trucking accident attorneys to fully investigate the accident and discover if there was negligence involved. Examples of ways a truck driver, trucking company or other party can be at fault for your accident and injuries include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver inattention or distraction
  • Driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Improper truck or trailer maintenance
  • Improper tire maintenance
  • Negligent driving in bad conditions
  • Truck loaded improperly, causing balance issues

Any of these factors can cause a truck to suddenly switch lanes, slide or even jack-knife. As you can see, an accident may not always be the fault of the truck driver. It could be the trucking company, a maintenance worker or even the municipality in charge of the highway. Our experienced accident injury attorneys in Atascadero can assist you in recreating what occurred, and finding out who is responsible.
