Framingham MA Truck Accident Lawyers

When a truck merges onto the highway in the lane next to us, most of us feel slightly nervous, or at least watchful. That is because the semi might weigh 80,000 pounds, is being pulled by a powerful tractor, and the cargo inside might be stacked as high as 13 feet and tip as the truck turns. Contact a Framingham, Massachusetts, truck accident attorney.

An accident with a tractor trailer is likely to kill or severely injure someone in a passenger vehicle. These accidents, sadly, are not rare. They happen every day in Massachusetts. Serious, common injuries include:

  • Burn injury
  • Face and eye injuries
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Head, neck and back injuries

Causes of Truck Accidents

The most disturbing cause of truck accidents is the companies' drive for maximum profit. They pressure their drivers to speed, drive for long hours, make deadlines better than their competition, and keep the trucks moving. Drivers should not be encouraged to drive when they are exhausted, or to use stimulants to keep awake. They should, of course, not use drugs or alcohol while driving. But many do.

Truck accidents are different from auto accidents in that there are so many parties involved in loading the truck, maintaining the truck, driving the truck, and insuring the truck, etc. It takes an experienced attorney to investigate the accident and identify any and all parties that may be held accountable and pay compensation to you, the victim.
