Honolulu Trucking Accident Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu Trucking Accident Attorney

Accidents involving large commercial trucks can result in more serious injuries due to their weight and size. The thought of being involved in an accident with a large truck with 18 wheels and possibly a load of cargo is frightening. But the fact is, according to NHTSA there are about 450,000 trucking accidents in the United States every year, and about 5,000 of these accidents resulted in death. Trucking accidents are usually the result of negligence from truck drivers and/or the companies that hire them.

Some of the factors for these accidents can include:

  • Inexperience – The truck driver simply may not have enough training and experience to be driving a large truck.
  • Truck Load – The truck may be carrying too much weight, or the cargo may not have been properly secured.
  • Truck Maintenance – The truck may not have been maintained properly and is in need of repairs.
  • Driver Fatigue – Many times drivers are under tremendous pressure to deliver the freight and may have quotas to meet. They could be in need of sleep and should not be driving.
  • Limited Visibility – Large trucks have limited visibility and restricted views from the truck’s mirrors. This can be a hazard for other vehicles on the road.
  • Weather Conditions – Bad weather conditions such as rain, snow or fog can affect stopping distance, and create road hazards.
  • Insufficient Stopping Distance – large trucks require a lot more stopping distance than other vehicles. The distance needed for a fully loaded semi-truck to stop is a lot more than a regular passenger vehicle.
  • Impaired Driving – This is a problem for anyone driving on the roads, but it is especially a problem when someone is operating a large truck because of the size and weight difference.

Trucking accidents can be much more complex than other vehicle accidents. Because these are commercial vehicles there are additional laws that may also apply. In addition, trucking companies are usually owned by corporations who have attorneys on retainer who are standing by ready to fight these types of lawsuits. That’s why you need an experienced trucking accident attorney who can stand up and fight the trucking company’s lawyers.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
