Massachusetts Truck Accident Lawyers
There are an estimated 15.5 million trucks on the road across the United States. Whether you’re driving on the highway or just around town, every driver encounters an 18-wheeler truck on a daily basis. And while all automobile accidents have the potential to cause devastating injuries, significant property damage, and lasting emotional trauma for anyone involved, when accidents occur between passenger vehicles and large commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers, the effects and consequences can be disastrous. Because 18-wheelers significantly larger and longer than standard motor vehicles (including pickup trucks), the devastation they inflict on unsuspecting passenger vehicle motorists is unmatched. And while it isn’t always the case, it is often the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles who suffer the most in these types of accidents because of the mismatch in size and weight of the vehicles involved. In fact, an estimated 72% of all truck accidents result in a fatality. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a truck, Crowe & Mulvey, LLP is here to let you know your legal options.
Truck drivers and their employers have a responsibility to every motorist on the road to operate their vehicles safely in order to avoid causing harm. When drivers fail to obey traffic laws, drive under the influence, or drive at excessive speed, they are putting innocent lives at risk. Truck driving accidents are currently one of the leading causes of death on the road, with almost 4,000 deaths annually. Being involved in a truck accident can upend every aspect of your life, from the quality of your personal relationships to your ability to work and earn a living for your family. You don’t have to suffer alone, and you don’t have to experience financial turmoil because of a reckless truck driver.
At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our Massachusetts semi-truck lawyers know all too well how much innocent motorists can suffer because of accidents involving large trucks. Frequently, victims of these accidents are left suffering from ongoing pain and suffering, significant medical bills resulting from their treatment, and enduring emotional trauma. Fortunately, however, legal action can be taken against those responsible for causing these accidents. This compensation is often critical to helping victims secure the financial compensation and closure they need.

Liability for Truck Accidents
Like any motor vehicle accident, large truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, and many accident victims are unsure as to who is ultimately responsible for the accident that caused them harm. And while driver error is the cause of the majority of all motor vehicle accidents, in some cases the wreck is due to a negligent trucking company or careless manufacturer. Depending on the details of an accident caused by a large truck, it is possible for responsibility to rest with any of the following parties:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company that hired, trained, and employed the driver
- The company responsible for maintaining the truck
- An auto manufacturer/parts manufacturer
Determining who is responsible for the accident that harmed you can seem overwhelming, but fortunately, the team at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP is here to help.
