Anyone who drives in Maine knows the hazards posed by commercial trucks. Whether it’s a logging truck on a narrow rural road, a cement truck in the city, or a tractor-trailer on the interstate, these vehicles pose unique risks to smaller vehicles and pedestrians. Even low-speed collisions can result in serious injury or death.
Driver fatigue, lack of proper training, speeding, excess loads, and poor vehicle maintenance are some of the top reasons why commercial trucks are involved in hundreds of accidents each year in Maine.
Maine law entitles truck accident victims to financial compensation. But many fail to recover for their losses because they aren’t represented by lawyers with the experience, resources, expertise, and proactive approach needed to win their case.
