Truck Crashes in Utah

Truck operators have a tremendous duty of care when it comes to moving heavy and oftentimes hazardous payloads. They are subject to rigorous and methodical training in order to learn the different parts of their truck and how to safely transport the goods they carry. 

We know that the healing process that follows a Utah truck accident injury typically takes months or even years depending on its severity. 

Some forms of negligent conduct that often lead to serious truck accidents include: 

  • Distraction
  • Fatigue/Lack of sleep
  • Drunk and/or drugged driving
  • Speeding/Reckless driving
  • Vehicle defects/Improper maintenance

Most people believe that, due to their specialized training, truck operators act more responsibly and safely than those who drive passenger vehicles. This is, at least in theory, true. Sadly, several hundred people are still seriously injured or killed every year in Utah because of a truck driver’s irresponsibility. 

If you were injured in a Utah truck accident, the law says you are due compensation for your injuries and other damages. Our Utah truck accident lawyers will review the police report, investigate the driver, and question any eyewitnesses to develop a full understanding of how the accident happened.
