Our Alabama Attorneys Help With 18-Wheeler Accident Cases
Because truck drivers often drive long distances for upward of 12 hours, there is an increased likelihood that they are drowsy while operating their vehicle. In some cases, this produces a greater risk than inebriation, and the effects can be deadly. Truck accidents are horrifying experiences that often leave those involved seriously injured. If you are in need of a truck accident lawyer in Alabama, Cartee & Lloyd Attorneys at Law serves clients who have been involved in collisions with any of the following vehicles:
- Big rig
- Semitrailer truck
Damages Commonly Incurred During Big Rig Collisions
An attorney may be able to help you seek compensation for the medical costs and other damages incurred. Many different physical injuries may be incurred in addition to the mental anguish and trauma that typically occurs. Some of the most common physical injuries that can happen in these kinds of accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Back and neck sprain
- Soft tissue damage
Large Truck Accidents
Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and deadliest in the United States. At Cartee & Lloyd, we recognize that handling these cases requires a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level. Trucking companies are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations concerning their equipment and their drivers' hours.
