Investigating Your Accident Promptly

Logging truck accidents often involve negligence by the driver, the logging company, a contractor or someone else involved in the logging operation. Unfortunately, trucking companies and their insurance companies will do almost anything to avoid liability. The sooner you contact our lawyers, the sooner we can take steps to collect and preserve the evidence we need to hold the responsible parties accountable.

Examples of negligence in logging truck accidents include:

  • Fatigue caused by drivers who drive too long without taking required rest breaks
  • Truck speeding caused by unrealistic delivery schedules
  • Unsafe passing or truck operation
  • Hiring unqualified truck drivers
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded logging trucks
  • Accidents caused by improper maintenance or defective equipment
  • Rear-end accidents caused by inattentive or distracted driving

The civil justice system can provide a strong motivation for logging companies to put safety first. While the logging industry is important to West Virginia, employers who put profits ahead of safety should be forced to pay.
