Preszler Injury Lawyers handles all kinds of truck accident claims 

The sooner you contact a personal injury lawyer from our firm, about your case, the quicker we can move to protect your interests and work hard to get the settlement to which you are entitled. Our Abbotsford personal injury lawyers have experience handling a wide variety of accident claims involving commercial trucks and semis, including:

  • Jackknife accidents – When the driver of a tractor-trailer or big rig slams on the brakes, the trailer skids out of control, stopping at a 90-degree angle with the cabin.
  • Underride accidents— A passenger vehicle slides under the truck, sometimes becoming trapped under the rear trailer, often causing catastrophic injury or death.
  • Wide-turn accidents — Due to their length, trucks make wide turns, and can inadvertently pin smaller vehicles in the process.
  • Brake or mechanical failures — Vehicle maintenance is of utmost importance in heavy tractor-trailers. Brakes that are worn out or improperly serviced can increase the likelihood of a fatal accident.
  • Fatigued truck drivers – An estimated 40 percent of all large truck collisions are attributed to driver fatigue. Truckers who are pressured into making long-haul trips without adequate rest breaks are likely to have slower reaction times, poor judgment ability, and fall asleep at the wheel.
  • Reckless driving – Speeding, especially when weather or road conditions are poor, reduces the driver’s ability to stop safely, maneuver around obstacles, or make sudden corrections on the highway.
  • Improper loading of freight – There are strict regulations for truck freight loads and weight. When these guidelines are ignored, and trucks are too heavy, or cargo becomes unbalanced, the risk of a preventable accident is much greater.

Truck accidents are horrific events, often resulting in dire health consequences for those who survive. Victims may experience anxiety, depression or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder for many months or years after the incident. As an experienced truck accident law firm, we recognize that psychological trauma and emotional distress are a very real part of your injuries, and we will remain a trusted ally throughout the claims process.
