Navigating The Aftermath Of Preventable Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are among the most devastating collisions that can occur, particularly when they involve passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders and/or pedestrians. What can be as catastrophic as the results of truck accidents is knowing that, in many cases, these collisions could have been prevented if it had not been for the negligence of truckers and possibly even trucking companies.

Understanding Common Causes Of Truck Accidents: Truck Driver Fatigue
Truck driver fatigue is one of the most common causes of truck accidents, especially among commercial drivers who may:
- Be trying to deliver the cargo they are hauling within strict time frames
- Violate federal hours-of-service regulations in order to get bonuses for delivering cargo ahead of schedule
The fact is that when truck drivers are fatigued, they are impaired, and the effects of this impairment can be the same as if they were driving drunk. When truck driver fatigue contributes to accidents, attorney Reed is ready to stand up for victims’ rights and hold the negligent and reckless truckers responsible for their roles in causing accidents.
Truck Driver Negligence
Driving while fatigued is not the only form of truck driver negligence that can increase the risk of truck accidents. In fact, other forms of truck driver negligence that can trigger serious collisions can include (but are not exclusive to):
- Truck driver intoxication
- Truck drivers failing to obey traffic laws and/or any trucking regulations
- Truck drivers failing to maintain their trucks
In some cases, if trucking companies previously knew about their truckers’ recklessness behind the wheel and failed to do anything about it, they may also be on the hook for compensating accident victims.
Fatal Truck Accidents
After fatal truck accidents, families who have lost loved ones in these collisions can rely on our lawyer to stand up for their rights to justice and compensation. We know that no amount of money can ever negate the loss of a loved one. However, we are also aware that, in many cases, obtaining compensation from the negligent parties who caused the fatal truck accidents can be critical to:
