Wilmington Truck Accident Lawyers
Seasoned Trial Lawyers Fighting for the Injured in Delaware
Being involved in an accident with a large, commercial truck is unlike any other type of traffic accident. Chances are, as the driver or passenger in a smaller car, you will sustain devastating injuries and property damage, well beyond that of the trucker and his vehicle. The weight and size of commercial trucks, up to 80,000 pounds, far exceeds that of passenger cars. The impact of such a massive vehicle can wreak extreme damage.
When negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the trucker or other third parties has resulted in such an accident, you deserve full and fair compensation for all your injury-related damages. This can be difficult to obtain due to the challenges presented by trucking companies and their insurers whose priority is to pay out as little as possible. That is why you need the services of Bifferato Gentilotti LLC in your corner as soon as possible. Our firm of experienced litigators can level the playing field against the aggressive legal teams of trucking and insurance companies.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can occur in many ways. Common causes include:
- Driver fatigue—this can occur when truckers violate federal regulations concerning their hours of service
- Driver error
- Distracted driving, including cell phone usage
- Overloaded trucks, making it difficult to stop
- Improperly loaded trucks, whose cargo will shift
- Improper or poor truck maintenance/inspections
- Defective parts or equipment on the truck
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Reckless driving
At Bifferato Gentilotti, we have developed an internal process and system for handling trucking accidents that has proved to be efficient and effective. Our Wilmington truck accident attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into the causes of the accident to determine liability and into the extent of all damage. This can include investigating the driver, the trucking company and their compliance with safety regulations, federal rules and traffic laws.
