Truck or Commercial Vehicle Collision

Most truck wrecks come from negligence.
The sheer size and weight of an 18-wheeler can cause serious injuries and damage in a collision.
For this reason, trucks are regulated for safety throughout Idaho.
Some companies and drivers violate these regulations and crashes occur—often with tragic injuries and destruction.
When you are represented by our attorneys, we immediately send investigators to the scene and work with police and independent specialists to determine the facts of the case.
Skaug Law collision investigators uncover the causes of and responsibility for wrecks that injure our clients or kill our client’s loved ones.
Common truck accident causes.
Driving too many hours
There are strict rules about a driver’s hours on the road and mandated hours of rest. Many semi truck drivers bend these rules in order to make delivery deadlines and make more money. Our truck accident lawyers and inspectors are experienced in finding loose ends.
The legal blood alcohol limit for commercial truck drivers is half the legal limit for other drivers.
To save costs, some trucking companies overload their trailers. The extra weight makes it harder to control and stop the truck.
Trucks are expensive to maintain and don’t make money when they are in the shop. Constant driving under heavy loads stress the rig and can lead to mechanical failures and crashes.
Similar to overloading, high speeds increase stopping distance and make it harder to control the size and weight of a commercial truck.
Were you injured in a delivery truck crash?
Not all commercial trucks are large 18-wheel semi trailers.
Thousands of delivery vans, small construction vehicles and other commercial vans and trucks also crowd Idaho roads and highways.
Because many drivers are under pressure to meet delivery deadlines and production schedules, they put other drivers at risk.
