Iowa Truck Driver Error Attorney

When Truckers Act Like They Own the Road ...

A fully loaded tractor-trailer weighs up to 40 tons. If the driver is careless or aggressive, anything in the truck's path is at grave risk. The majority of truckers are conscientious professionals, but it only takes one negligent truck driver to change some family's life forever.

Over-the-road truckers must have a commercial driver's license (CDL), which in turn means that they have been trained in trucking regulations and safe operation of an 18-wheeler. Thus there is little excuse when truck driver error is the primary factor in a crash.

Our personal injury lawyers know what to look for in investigating truck wrecks, and we have the means to hire accident reconstruction specialists, human factors engineers and other experts. We are skilled at tracing the driver's careless actions or reckless driving prior to the collision:

  • Speeding or driving too fast for weather conditions
  • Tailgating
  • Changing lanes
  • Illegal or dangerous passing
  • Road rage or aggressive driving
  • Failure to yield when turning
  • Running a traffic light or stop sign
  • Texting while driving or other distraction
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

No amount of money makes up for a loved one's death or catastrophic injuries. However, we can hold the trucker and the trucking firm accountable for years or a lifetime of medical care, lost income, disability, and pain and suffering, or for the survivors' losses from a wrongful death.
