Morgantown Truck Accident Lawyers

Attorneys Who Fight for Your Recovery, Also Serving Clients in Clarksburg

Accidents involving large semi-trucks or other heavy vehicles have the potential to result in greater harm than other accidents, both to people and to property. For this reason, there’s a responsibility on the operators of this heavy equipment to be very careful and considerate of other drivers.

Most do their best, but if someone makes a poor judgment call, the consequences can be severe.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, call (304) 244-4433 for a free consultation with our experienced Morgantown truck accident attorneys.

Attorney Sam Madia is a former defense attorney who represented several national trucking companies. In fact, one of the last cases that Sam took to trial as a defense lawyer was a truck collision case. Sam’s experience as a former “trucking company attorney” works to his clients’ benefit. Sam knows the “ins and outs” of these national trucking companies.

Sam knows the pressure points and weaknesses of the national trucking companies. If you have been injured by a trucking company’s conduct or a loved one has lost their life due to a trucking company’s conduct – you need Sam on your side.

Preventing Accidents

A truck may weight 20-30 times more than a passenger vehicle and can take 40% longer to stop. This means your average car or SUV is much more likely to take significant damage in an accident with a truck—and your injuries are likely to be more severe than the other driver’s.

It’s always a good idea to take extra care around trucks or heavy machinery.

There are several precautions you can take around large trucks:

  • Stay out of blind spots. Don’t linger to the side of a truck when passing on the highway.
  • Drive far enough behind trucks that you can see the vehicle’s side mirrors.
  • If possible, don’t pull all the way forward into an intersection if a semi is turning into the lane next to you. This leaves room for wide turns.
  • Do not quickly decelerate after pulling in front of a truck.
  • Always wear a seatbelt.
