Belleville Speeding Truck Accident Attorneys

Semi tractor-trailers and other large commercial vehicles pose significant risks to other motorists. This is the main reason that operating one of these large vehicles is so strictly regulated. Many factors that are part of the trucking industry are regulated at either the state or federal level, including:

  • Driver training requirements
  • Number of hours a trucker may drive at one time (mandated rest periods)
  • Maintenance

One simple factor still causes, or is a partial cause of, so many trucking accidents: speeding.

Too many truckers regularly ignore speed limits to devastating effect. Truck drivers may be under pressure from their employers, whoever they are carrying cargo for or their own desire to end a run more quickly. No matter the cause, speeding is a major factor in a large percentage of trucking accidents.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a trucking accident, you need to have an attorney on your side who is skilled in these types of cases. Trucking accidents can be factually very complex and can require extremely thorough investigations in order to overcome the vast legal resources that insurance companies will use to limit their liability.
