Representing people injured in all types of truck accidents

Large trucks have limited visibility and are difficult to maneuver, making it hard for them to safely share the road with smaller vehicles. Our attorneys assist clients injured in truck accidents involving almost all types of trucks and other large vehicles:

  • Tractor-trailers
  • Big rigs
  • Semis
  • Commercial trucks
  • 18-wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Fire trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Back hoes

Causes of truck accidents

All drivers on the road have a duty to drive with ordinary care. When they fail to do so, this is considered negligence, and they can be held liable for any resulting accidents and injuries their negligence causes. At Cunningham & Mears, our Oklahoma City truck accident lawyers offer assistance for the injured in recovering compensation for truck accidents caused by all types of negligence and wrongdoing:

  • Driver negligence
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding, sudden lane changes or other reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Employer negligence
  • Negligent hiring of truck drivers
  • Negligent training by employers
  • Improperly loaded or oversized vehicles
  • Failure to properly maintain truck
  • Dangerous or defective truck parts or truck design
  • Negligent road design

Laws governing commercial trucks in Oklahoma

Oklahoma state and federal laws govern all aspects of the operation of commercial trucks including:

  • Size and weight
  • Loading of vehicles
  • Driver training
  • Commercial drivers licensing
  • Rest stop and maximum hour requirements
  • Truck maintenance
  • Vehicle safety
  • Transportation of hazardous materials

These laws were created to protect truckers and other drivers and to minimize the number of truck accidents. If a truck driver, commercial employer or other employee fails to follow these regulations and this results in injuries to you or your family, an personal injury lawyer at Cunningham & Mears can help you seek the compensation you need.
