There Are Many Causes of 18-Wheeler Trucking Wrecks
Regardless of the cause of your trucking accident, if it was caused by negligence you could be entitled to significant compensation for lost wages and medical expenses. We handle a variety of big rig truck crashes caused by:
- Unsecured cargo
- Overloaded cargo
- Drowsy drivers
- Large blind spots
We investigate these accidents thoroughly to determine the cause, often working with accident reconstructionists and engineers to determine how fast a truck was going and how quickly the brakes could have been applied to stop the vehicle.

Investigating The Accident Scene
Succeeding in a truck accident case requires a thorough and painstaking investigation. Your case for compensation depends on this investigation.
In serious accident cases, we routinely involve an accident investigator, engineer, traffic safety expert, and other professionals. We visit the scene, examine the vehicles, and determine how the accident happened and who is responsible. Our investigation can include:
- Witness interviews
- Safety histories of both the truck and the truck driver
- History of alcohol or drug problems
- Trucker’s driving log
- Breathalyzer and drug test analysis
- Security camera footage
- Electronic onboard recorder and GPS
- Truck and trailer maintenance records
- Accident reconstruction and analysis
- 911 recordings
Why such a thorough investigation? Because trucking companies enjoy certain advantages in injury cases. Their risk managers usually arrive first on the scene. They have first access to all recorded information. Consequently, they are in a good position to deny, delay and obstruct.
At Musleh Law Firm, we have the experience, resources and advocacy skills needed to win these challenging cases. We will advocate for you in court and in settlement negotiations, seeking the best possible result.
Did They Break the Rules?
There are many rules and regulations that govern trucking company hiring practices as well as how many hours truckers can be on the road in a given time period. If regulations were ignored, we will go after the driver and the trucking company to secure the compensation you deserve.
