Eugene Truck Accident Attorneys for Collisions Involving Tractor Trailers, 18-Wheelers, and Other Large Commercial Trucks
When a large commercial truck is traveling at highway speeds, there is a lot that can go wrong. From driver mistakes such as harsh braking and distracted driving to issues with the truck itself, all types of issues have the potential to cause serious and fatal collisions. Even at slower speeds, mistakes such as turning errors, failing to check blind spots, and driving while distracted or fatigued can lead to accidents as well – and, when they do, victims and their families are entitled to just compensation under Oregon law.
We Handle All Types of Truck Accident Cases in Eugene, OR
OurEugene truck accident lawyers have decades of experience helping truck accident victims and families recover just compensation. We handle all types of commercial trucking accident cases in Eugene and throughout Oregon, including:
Backing Up/Reversing Accidents
A significant number of commercial truck accidents occur, not when the truck is moving forward, but when it is moving in reverse. When backing up, truck drivers must exercise extreme caution to avoid hitting any vehicles or pedestrians that may be behind them. From backing up too fast to failing to use a spotter when necessary, various forms of negligence can lead to dangerous truck reversing accidents.
Highway Truck Accidents
The majority of serious and fatal truck accidents occur on highways such as Interstate 5. When traveling at highway speeds, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, and other large commercial trucks need a significant amount of braking room, and even minor mistakes and malfunctions can lead to major accidents.
Merging and Lane-Changing Truck Accidents
Before merging or changing lanes, truck drivers must ensure that they have enough room to do so safely. Unfortunately, they do not always exercise the care that is required. From failing to check their blind spots to driving aggressively and forcing other drivers to attempt evasive maneuvers, truck drivers regularly make mistakes that lead to merging and lane-changing accidents.
Multi-Vehicle Truck Accidents
In many cases, truck drivers’ mistakes and truck defects will lead to multi-vehicle accidents. These accidents can present unique challenges when it comes to recovering financial compensation, and this makes it especially important to choose an experienced truck accident law firm. At D’Amore Law Group, our Eugene truck accident lawyers have the experience required to help our clients recover after multi-vehicle truck accidents.
Spilled Cargo Accidents
When a truck’s cargo spills onto the road, the consequences can be devastating. Yet, failure to properly secure cargo is one of the most common safety violations committed by trucking companies and their drivers. Our firm has significant experience handling truck accidents involving safety violations, and we can use our experience to prove fault and secure the financial compensation you and your family deserve.
Truck Accidents at Intersections
Truck accidents occurring at intersections are typically the result of truck driver negligence. Distracted driving, tailgating, running red lights, and making unsafe turns are all common factors. However, truck defects (e.g., brake failures) can play a role as well. When investigating these accidents, it is imperative to thoroughly assess all potential factors.
Truck Rollovers and Jackknives
Truck rollover and jackknife accidents can result from driver negligence, truck maintenance issues, truck defects, issues with the road or, as is often the case, some combination of the above. As with all types of commercial truck accidents, when we investigate these accidents, we work to gather all available evidence from all sources, and we use the evidence to prove our clients’ claims for damages.
