Head-On Collisions – Fatal Trucking Accident Lawyer
Vehicle accidents can cause extensive damage. But nothing compares to a violent head-on collision with a commercial truck. Loaded trucks can weigh in at around 80,000 pounds. When that much weight is traveling at even a moderate rate of speed and collides head-on with an oncoming vehicle, tremendous forces meet together to produce some of the most horrific truck accidents imaginable. Due to the terrible impact, fatalities normally occur, and even survivors can suffer serious, debilitating injuries.
Commercial truck drivers operate under a strict set of rules that govern how much and how often they may get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, many drivers and companies try to push those limits and drive farther and longer to raise their profit margin. Some factors that can contribute to head on collisions include:
- Drowsy driving
- Drug use
- Distracted driving
- Excessive speed
- Poor road / weather conditions
Negligence is at the root of all these factors. Stockbridge lawyer Darrell T. Farr has almost 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases, including head-on collision truck accidents.
