Rhode Island Truck Accident Attorney

Sound Legal Representation for Injured Victims & Their Families

Commercial truck accidents are common on our roads. Unfortunately, due to the massive size and weight of these trucks, accidents are never minor. In fact, accidents with commercial trucks are often quite severe and result in serious and potentially permanent injuries. Unfortunately, truck accidents may also result in wrongful death. The United States Department of Transportation reports that nearly 5,000 people are killed each year by large trucks or buses, and nearly 100,000 are injured in accidents with commercial trucks or buses. Of those numbers, Rhode Island and Massachusetts have more than their fair share.

Victims of truck accidents may experience problems with mounting hospital and doctor’s bills, lost wages, and mental and physical suffering. Commercial trucks, often owned by large corporations, carry high insurance limits. If there is any silver lining, this is it. However, high insurance limits are of no benefit if you do not hire a truck accident attorney in Rhode Island who knows how to maximize what you receive. We aggressively pursue large cases, finding lawsuits right away and preparing for trial. Only in this manner do we ensure leaving no money on the table. If you have been seriously injured by a commercial truck it is absolutely imperative that you contact our office and find out why we have collected over ten million dollars in settlements in less than five years!

What Makes Truck Accidents Different from Car Accidents?

Truck accidents are increasingly common due to the number of trucks on the road. Commercial trucks due to their shape and weight are unable to stop quickly or maneuver around obstacles in the same way that a passenger vehicle might. As a result, commercial trucks are often unable to avoid a collision. Furthermore, commercial truck drivers are frequently trying to meet deadlines and, therefore, are driving too fast or are avoiding necessary stops to rest. This can create a dangerous situation which puts everyone on the road at risk.

Drivers of commercial trucks are operating very dangerous equipment and are obligated to drive with the highest standards of care so as to avoid injury. It is for this reason that commercial truck drivers are required to obtain a special (CDL) license. If they fail to drive their truck with the appropriate standard of care and cause an accident they may be liable for your personal injury claim.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Truck Accident?

Unlike regular passenger car accidents, commercial truck accidents present multiple parties that may be held liable for damages caused by the accident. Depending on what caused the accident, the below parties can potentially be held liable:

  • The Truck Driver
  • The Trucking Company
  • The Cargo Manufacturer/Loader
  • Third Party Drivers

Oftentimes determining truck accident liability can be a difficult and confusing process. Our truck accident lawyer is here to help you find the evidence needed to prove fault in the accident, and in so doing, get you the compensation you deserve.
