Truck Driver Error Accident Attorneys in Salt Lake City

Truck Driver Error Accident Attorneys in Salt Lake City

Operators of tractor-trailers have a higher duty of care to drive safely than noncommercial drivers of passenger vehicles. When a truck driver fails to obey speed limits, drives tired or aggressively, or commits other errors, the result can be deadly for other motorists.

At Feller & Wendt, LLC, our attorneys understand the effect that truck driver errors can have on the lives of other people. If you or a family member has been injured in an accident involving a semi truck, we will work tirelessly to help you recover full compensation for medical expenses, lost income, mental and emotional anguish, and other damages. With offices in Salt Lake City, Layton, North Logan and St. George, we represent clients throughout Utah. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Truck Driver Negligence and Truck Accidents

Many accidents involving 18-wheelers involve errors by truck drivers. Examples include:

Truck driver speeding: A driver who is driving too fast has less time to react to stopped traffic or other road conditions.
Inadequate safety checks: Truck drivers are required to perform a pre-trip inspection of safety equipment such as lights, brakes and tires.
Overloaded trucks: An overloaded truck is harder to maneuver and stop than one that is carrying a legal load.
Driver fatigue: When a driver fails to take required rest breaks, he or she can put other drivers at risk.
Failure to maintain lanes: When a truck driver allows his rig to drift into the lanes of other vehicles, devastating collisions can result.

When an accident occurs, our lawyers will go to work immediately to review the accident scene and preserve evidence of truck driver errors. We work with several private investigating companies that regularly investigate accidents involving tractor-trailers.
