How an Alabama Accident Lawyer Can Help After You’ve Been Injured by a Big Truck
In a crash where the driver of a semi truck or tractor-trailer is at fault, the trucking company will send an adjuster or a response team to the scene to assess the damages and victims’ injuries. Their job is to limit the company’s liability — and evidence sometimes even disappears.
To fight back, you’ll need a skilled truck wreck lawyer. The truck accident lawyers at Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys understand the insurance company’s tactics, and we can help you navigate the complex process of filing your claims and negotiating a settlement.

We Understand the Leading Causes of Alabama Semi-Truck Accidents
Big rigs can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and passenger car drivers and occupants often suffer more severe personal injuries in truck accidents. According to 2016 data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 64% of those who died in fatal truck crashes were the occupants of cars and passenger vehicles.
Many different factors can contribute to an 18-wheeler accident. Some common causes of severe and fatal truck wrecks include:
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Overloaded trucks and incorrectly secured cargo
- Failure to drive safely in bad weather conditions
- Mechanical malfunctions, such as brake failure
- Poor truck maintenance
- Defective and dangerous truck parts and equipment
- Improperly trained and unqualified drivers
- Drunk driving and drugged driving
Truck drivers are sometimes under pressure to deliver cargo on tight deadlines, which can push truckers to cut corners and drive longer than the regulated hours.
