Imagine sitting in your vehicle at a traffic light or stop sign waiting for your cue to go. You are dialing through radio stations, glancing at your phone, or chatting with a friend in the passenger seat when you glance in your rearview mirror and see an 18-wheeler barreling toward you at top speed. What do you do? Unfortunately, by the time most drivers realize they need to take immediate action; it’s too late to react. And that is why you need an experienced Nebraska truck accident attorney on your side.
Commercial transport drivers are no less susceptible to modern distractions than other vehicle drivers. Exhaustion tends to play a role in these types of accidents more so than others.
Tractor-trailer operators are now limited to no more than 11 hours of driving each day before needing a 10 hour break, and must log the required amount of driving and rest time. Regardless, some drivers falsify their logbooks in order to meet deadlines or earn more money. Many larger companies are now having electronic devices installed in their vehicles to ensure those regulations are upheld; however, laws regarding these measures are not yet all-inclusive.
Some other typical causes of a truck accident also include:
Loaded to their maximum legal limit, 18-wheelers can weigh upwards of 96,000 pounds. At a speed of 60 miles per hour, they require 250 to 330 feet to stop depending on their date of manufacture and other factors. Of course, that also assumes the driver is fully trained, alert, and well-seasoned in his or her profession, has finely honed reflexes, and the road is dry.
There are over 500,000 truck accidents a year and approximately 5,000 of those accidents result in death. Nebraska drivers are among those at risk of becoming victims of an 18-wheeler crash, but Nebraska truck accident attorney Larry Demerath and the legal team at Demerath Law Office are here for you.
In each of these situations, negligence is the prevailing factor. Whether this lack of appropriate action comes at the hands of a tractor-trailer operator, a trucking company, or a maintenance technician, you deserve compensation for your injuries or the loss of your loved one. Our legal team at Demerath Law Office has the experience and resources needed to help prove who is at fault, the exact type of injuries and damages you received, and to acquire reasonable compensation for all victims — with over 45 years of experience and a comprehensive understanding of this area of the law.
