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.

I just left USCCA and signed up with AOR today after much research, and watching a gazillion... youtube videos from all of the various providers of CCW protection. I believe that by becoming a client of an actual law firm, I am on substantially more solid ground regarding the quality of legal assistance I will receive should I ever be involved in a self defense incident.From the first exploratory phone call that I made to AOR, to my signing on with them, all of the staff I spoke with were extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and informative. They spent time answering any and all questions that I had, without any sense that they were trying to rush through the conversation. Additionally, none of the staff attempted to apply any sales pressure to join AOR as if they were used car salesmen, they simply answered questions and provided information. That was greatly appreciated.I feel much more confident in my potential legal position following a self defense incident knowing that events that would end coverage under other programs, will have no affect on my legal protection with AOR.read more
