Oklahoma Semi Truck Accidents

By Car Accident Help on August 22, 2015

Oklahoma City Truck AccidentAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), accidents with tractor trailers are responsible for one in nine highway deaths. While tractor trailer traffic is important to the economy of Oklahoma and the nation as a whole, the sheer size and weight of these trucks can make them especially dangerous to the drivers of passenger vehicles.

Drivers of tractor trailers and other large trucks operate under strict guidelines set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. These rules dictate such things as how many hours a commercial driver can drive without rest, how much weight a truck can carry, etc. While the majority of independent drivers and trucking companies stick to these rules, there are times when they don’t. Many truck accidents occur when a driver is speeding or going too fast for conditions in order to meet a delivery deadline, hasn’t had enough sleep or rest, is relying on amphetamines or other drugs to combat fatigue, or is on a cell phone.

If you or a family member is injured in a collision with a large truck, it is important that you’re represented by legal counsel that is familiar with local trucking regulations and statutes. Commercial truckers have large and powerful insurance companies backing them up, so you need savvy and aggressive attorneys to fight for the rights and compensation you’re entitled to. If injured in an accident with a truck, you may be entitled to damages for the following:

*Medical bills     *Loss of income     *Chronic pain     *Post traumatic stress     *Permanent injury     *Pain and suffering
