Lexington Truck Accident Attorney
Millions Won by 40+ Years of Combined Representation
Whenever you drive anywhere, whether you are driving in a rural area or in the city, you are likely to be sharing the road with one or more tractor trailers. Because of their size and weight, semi-trucks must be driven by drivers who have been specially trained and licensed to drive them safely. State and federal laws also regulate the trucking industry and the activities of truck drivers, with the goal of making the roads safer for everyone. Most truck drivers take their work seriously; they obey the laws and drive safely. When truck drivers engage in behavior that compromises their ability to drive safely, accidents can occur which can cause serious injury, death, and large amounts of property damage.

Causes of a Truck Accident
When truck drivers fail to operate their commercial vehicles in a safe manner, it can result in permanent and life-threatening injuries and even wrongful death. Knowing the cause of a trucking accident is the first step in confidently seeking compensation for its resulting damages. Our team of Kentucky truck accident attorneys know all about the most common causes of trucking accidents in our state. We have seen many cases in which a trucker was racing down the I-75 to try to make a delivery, lost control, and crashed into another motorist, for example.

- Drivers that fail to drive at a safe speed
- Drunk or drugged truck drivers
