Morgantown Truck Accident Lawyers

Attorneys Who Fight for Your Recovery 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 truck accident attorneys in Morgantown.

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.
