Truck Accident Lawyers in Massachusetts & NH
Anyone traveling on Massachusetts and New Hampshire highways knows the anxiety and intimidation of being in a car and traveling along with an 18 wheeler truck. When tractor trailer trucks are fully loaded and barreling down the highway, they can weigh nearly 80,000 pounds; which is far more than the weight of the average car. Because of the sheer weight and size of 18 wheeler trucks, any accident they are involved in can be much more extensive and damaging. When you factor in certain variables such as, extreme winter weather, coastal storms, congested roads, road construction or defects and other factors, truck accidents can occur anywhere anytime on Massachusetts or New Hampshire roadways and with devastating consequences. A car or motorcycle is simply no match for a loaded 18 wheeler. If you have been the victim of a truck accident in Massachusetts or New Hampshire, Injury Attorney George C. Malonis may be able to help you get the settlement and damages you need.
Truck Accident Causes
Beyond outside conditions that can lead to Massachusetts and New Hampshire truck accidents, there are other factors that can contribute to the onset of a truck accident. The truck driver may be inexperienced or unprepared for the road conditions. They may be over worked and tired. There can also be a malfunction of truck components, such as the brakes. The load they are carrying may not be appropriate for the truck. Once an 18 wheeler loses control even slightly, the cars and motorcycles nearby are vulnerable and virtually helpless to escape what may come. The truck driver may also be at risk for injury or worse.
