Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?
Sadly, many truck accidents are the result of preventable factors. Because they are larger and heavier than other vehicles, trucks often cause serious physical damage to innocent motorists and their passengers. Some of the most common factors that contribute to truck accidents include the following:
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Fatigued or distracted truckers
- Faulty brakes and negligent maintenance
- Improperly loaded cargo

Truck accidents often involve complex investigations, and many require accident reconstruction. Important factors in your case may also include industry regulations, weather conditions and potentially liable third parties. It is not often easy to determine fault, and trucking companies or insurance providers are reluctant to admit any liability.
Mr. Freeman knows how to navigate these difficult situations, and he will represent your interests at every step. He knows how insurance companies work to minimize or deny claims, and he will tenaciously pursue fair compensation on your behalf.
