A truck accident can involve all manner of heavy and large commercial vehicles that causes damage to you or a loved one. Any accident involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, log trucks, chemical or tanker trucks might constitute a truck accident claim and therefore requires the assistance of an attorney.
These types of accidents are handled differently than a common motor vehicle accident due to the many factors at play. You need help navigating the claim process because oftentimes the vehicle that is involved is owned and operated by a company. Also, federal and state agencies work to regulate the trucking industry which can have significant implications on a claim.
If you’ve been hit by a truck or other large company vehicle, we can help you on your road to recovery and get you the compensation that you deserve. However, sadly, many people do not survive a truck accident. With all of the state and interstate highways crossing through it, Little Rock has been labeled as one of the top five cities for fatality accidents in the country. The reported total fatality rate per 100,000 population is nearly 18. If one of your loved ones is apart of this number, you might be able to pursue a claim on their wrongful death or the grief you have suffered.
The aid of one of our knowledgeable attorneys can help make a difference in the claim of the surviving family members, as well as those that have been injured in a truck accident. We advise anyone seeking to place accountability upon those responsible for causing harm to contact us.

Major causes of truck accidents
Semi-truck accidents oftentimes include a violation of the Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (“DOT Regs”), including:
- Driver tiredness or fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Faulty maintenance practices
- Brake failure or out-of-service brakes
- Driver error
- Override accidents
- Runaway trailers
- Overloaded trailers/ semi-trucks
- Tire blowouts
- Highway conditions/weather
- Trying to make on-time deadlines
A survey of Arkansas accident cases reveals that dangerously overloaded trucks that are driven with poor, unmaintained braking systems, questionable tires, and other unsafe maintenance practices are a major reason for truck accidents. By choosing to ignore or delay necessary maintenance, the operators of the vehicles unknowingly shift the risk onto the unsuspecting public. The law provides all of the tools necessary to hold the operators and their insurance companies accountable. All you need is a lawyer who can help navigate the claim!
