Logging Truck Accident Attorneys


August 08, 2020

The logging industry is vital to the growth of America. Logging trucks are often encountered on many of the Interstate highways that crisscross the country. Sadly, many fatal and catastrophic logging truck accidents happen every year.  The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration provides specific regulations regarding logging trucks.

Logging truck crashes occur in a variety of ways. Fatigued driving, driving on unfamiliar roads, speeding, carrying oversized loads or loads that are excessively long threaten the safety of people on the road. Logging trucks that are too heavy often crash because they cannot stop in time. Additionally, a shifting load can move the balance of the entire truck away from the centerline of the bed. 

Logging trucks can leave a field of debris behind as well. Falling branches and other debris can strike passing vehicles and force drivers to take evasive action, which could force drivers to lose control and crash. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to debris falling from a logging truck. 

Logging truck accident victims may be entitled to a multitude of damages depending on the particular facts of the incident. A person or family of a person who was injured or tragically killed in a logging truck accident might be eligible to receive a damage award that includes compensation for injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.   In order to correctly determine what damages you may be entitled to, call Montlick & Associates, Injury Attorneys, for your free consultation today.
