Logging Trailer Accidents

family members may be entitled
Fatigued drivers, narrow roads, and overloaded or over-length trucks all create situations that lead to tragic accidents involving logging trucks. Overloaded trucks can’t stop efficiently, which leads to high-speed wrecks; meanwhile, drivers following behind over-length logging trucks often can’t see unmarked tree trunks extending beyond the bed of the truck, causing deadly rear-end collisions. In addition, unsecured debris from these trucks can cause serious injury to motorcyclists and other drivers who are hit by sticks and branches.
The injured victims of these logging truck accidents and their family members may be entitled to damages and wrongful death benefits from the trucking company, the maintenance provider or other contractors, and even the lumber company itself depending upon the facts of the case.
Logging Companies Try to Avoid Responsibility
Lumber companies and landowners sometimes hire “fly-by-night” logging truck operators who lack the proper training and qualifications, leading to the dangerous conditions described above. These companies and individuals have the financial resources to employ teams of defense lawyers whose sole job is to defeat personal injury claims arising from logging truck accidents. The lumber companies and landowners frequently attempt to deny and minimize their own liability while blaming the person who has suffered an injury as a result of a logging truck accident.
