Logging Truck Accidents

Charleston Logging Truck Accident Lawyer

Helping Victims of Serious Accidents in West Virginia

Logging trucks are a familiar sight on roads. While logging brings jobs and income to our communities, heavy truck traffic can also lead to deadly accidents.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, we understand how devastating a serious accident can be to a family. Our attorneys represent the victims of accidents involving logging trucks and other types of tractor-trailers.

In addition to representing injured people, we represent family members in cases of wrongful death.

Logging trucks often operate in hilly areas that have steep, narrow, and winding roads. These are dangerous conditions for any vehicle, but especially so for a logging truck weighing upwards of 80,000 pounds. There is no room for carelessness on the part of the logging company or the driver.

When an accident occurs, our attorneys will begin an immediate investigation to determine the cause. In doing so, our goal is to hold negligent operators accountable and ensure that victims are fully compensated.

The following are examples of negligence in logging truck accidents:

  • Unsecured or unbalanced loads
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Hiring unqualified drivers
  • Drug or alcohol use by drivers
  • Unsafe passing
  • Driver fatigue
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Blowouts caused by bald or retreaded tires
  • Brake failure
  • Runaway trucks

Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may be entitled to compensation if the logging truck driver or logging company violated safety rules that apply to heavy trucks on roads.
