Who Is Liable In a Truck Accident?

Large-truck crashes that involve passenger vehicles are increasingly common in the United States, and Arkansas is no exception.

The number of commercial trucks involved in fatal collisions has increased 42 percent since 2009, according to recent data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and the majority of those killed were passenger vehicle occupants.

A 2014 report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that large-truck accidents accounted for more than 11 percent of all traffic-related fatalities in Arkansas.

Semi-truck crashes—including those involving logging trucks—are common in the greater Little Rock area due to the interchange of major interstates and the heavy commercial traffic that use these highways.

Recovering compensation for injuries suffered in a crash with a semi, log truck or other large commercial truck can be difficult because multiple parties—including the truck driver and trucking company—may be liable.

If you were hurt or a loved one was killed in a collision with a large truck, the Little Rock truck accident lawyers at the Minton Law Firm are ready to help.

Factors in Arkansas Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents are an unfortunate and relatively frequent occurrence in the Benton and Little Rock thanks in part to Benton’s location along with Interstate 30 and Little Rock’s position amid a network of bypassing interstates and state highways, all of which bear heavy commercial truck traffic.

Because Arkansas relies on its freight economy, it’s important to understand both the rewards and risks of our state’s trucking industry.
