Accidents Involving 18-Wheelers

Accidents involving semi trucks can be the most devastating kind of motor vehicle accident. A terrifying instant can have life-changing repercussions. When you or a loved one has suffered such anguish, you deserve all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

At Aldridge & Aldridge Law Firm in Elizabethtown, we understand that you are under incredible stress, financially, physically and emotionally. We aim to assist in all ways we can in ensuring that you can get back to the quality of life you deserve.

Not only do truck accidents often cause serious injuries, but it can be a more daunting insurance process because there is often a trucking company involved. Big rig accidents also involve a great deal of investigation to determine a cause and whether it was negligence.

Common reasons for 18-wheeler accidents in Kentucky include:

  • Training: In regard to safely carrying materials, including hazardous materials
  • Equipment: Weight limits, tire blowouts, improper straps
  • Driver fatigue: Often due to unreasonable expectations or policies by the trucking company
