Experienced Kentucky Trucking Accident Defense Attorneys Represent Businesses
Kentucky law firm helping limit your exposure after a tractor-trailer wreck
Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving trucks may cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. People injured in truck accidents often try to hold the driver or the trucking company responsible for their injuries whether or not it is actually the case. In reality, the driver of the car or other vehicle involved is often the one who is truly responsible for the accident. Cars drive in trucks’ blind spots, cut truck drivers off, or hit trucks as they turn. The attorneys at the Banks Law Office, PLLC help you dispute liability and the amount of damages in cases involving:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- Unsafe road conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
- Unlicensed or untrained drivers
- Truck rollovers
- Oversized trucks
- Tire blowouts
- Brake failure
- Truck maintenance
- Mechanical defects
- Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers
Our attorneys defend even the toughest claims and seek to limit your liability.
