West Virginia Truck Accident Lawyer Getting Justice for Injured Victims

Trucks are massive, dangerous vehicles.

They make wide turns, stop slowly and are prone to rolling over. Trucks have massive blind spots and low visibility.

While they are essential for our economy, they present an ever-present danger to everyone else on the road. The truck accident lawyers at the Prim Law Firm, PLLC represent victims injured in West Virginia tractor-trailer wrecks.

We fight to get our clients the largest settlements or awards possible. We take on drivers, trucking companies, parts manufacturers and insurers to help our clients get justice.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck wrecks happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes of tractor-trailer accidents include:

  • Negligent drivers. Driver negligence is a major cause of truck accidents. Drivers may be distracted, or they may fail in their duties to make sure the truck is properly loaded and inspected. Drivers may also operate their rigs while tired or fatigued.
  • Poor maintenance. Trucks that are not properly maintained can lose the ability to steer or brake. Parts can also fall off, causing a major hazard.
  • Defective parts. When truck parts are defectively designed or manufactured, they can break or malfunction.
  • Speeding. Trucks can’t stop as quickly as cars, and they are clumsy when it comes to switching lanes or avoiding obstacles. When a truck driver speeds, these factors become even more problematic and accidents become harder to avoid. Trucks that can’t slow down are likely to rear-end and run over a car in front of them, causing massive damage.

When you have been hurt, your focus should be on recovery. Our truck accident lawyers will piece together events that led to your injury and craft a legal strategy to help you get any damages you are entitled to by law.

Responsibility in cases of truck accident injury or wrongful death

When a driver or passenger is hurt in a truck accident, responsibility can lie with many parties. The driver of the truck may have been negligent. In some cases, another driver could be responsible. This is especially likely in cases where an injured passenger is seeking to hold someone responsible for their injuries.

A trucking company, a manufacturer or even a mechanic can be held liable in a wrongful death or personal injury claim. Our attorneys can help you understand which parties can be pursued for damages in your case. Each accident is different, and small factors can play a large role in determining your legal rights.
