A Skilled and Determined Truck Accident Attorney in Boston, MA
Big trucks can cause massive injuries. Truckers are held to exacting standards. For instance, they must have a valid commercial driver’s license, abide by strict federal trucking regulations, and take other critical measures to drive safely. The reason for such accountability is obvious: Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles have the capacity to cause tremendous devastation. Given the size and weight of such vehicles, tractor-trailer accidents often cause serious and even fatal injuries. That’s why you need an experienced truck accident attorney in Boston, MA, to stand up for your rights when you’ve been hurt.
Why Truck Accidents Happen
Despite strict laws and regulations, trucking accidents are still far too common. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 17,000 people were injured in large truck accidents in 2009. A significant number of those injuries were the result of truck driver negligence, including:
- Truck Driver Fatigue
- Failure to Check Brakes, Tires, and Lights
- Unsecured Loads
- Weight Violations
- Failure to Maintain a Safe Distance
- Unsafe Driving in Adverse Weather Conditions

Truck Driver Fatigue Accidents
One common cause of truck accidents is driver fatigue. Since truckers are paid by the mile and are expected to log significant miles, they often drive for extended periods of time without taking adequate rest breaks. Truckers know the risks of driver fatigue, but all too often they cut corners to make extra wages.
