Wyoming has one of the highest rates of per capita fatalities due to trucking
accidents, according to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).
Throughout the United States, trucking accidents are responsible for countless
deaths and injuries each year. Because of their immense size, the high
speeds at which they tend to travel, limited visibility, and other factors,
large trucks present a serious hazard for other motorists on the road.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
In Wyoming and throughout the country, commercial vehicle companies and
operators are required by law to follow certain safety standards designed
to keep others safe. When a company or truck driver fails to do so, it
can lead to devastating consequences. Such negligence can result in
catastrophic injuries and
even death for other motorists.
Some common causes of trucking accidents that may constitute negligence include:
- Trucking companies encouraging unrealistic schedules
- Truck drivers required to travel for unadvisable lengths of time
- Distracted driving, speeding, fatigue, or other driver negligence
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Inadequate training for commercial truck drivers
- Improper vehicle/equipment maintenance
- Failing or defective truck parts, including tires or breaks
- Overloaded trucks leading to loss of control and other problems
At The Spence Law Firm, we look at all of the details of your unique situation
in order to determine liability. We may find that multiple parties, such
as the driver
and the truck company, are responsible for the accident. In every case, we
will seek the maximum compensation you are owed for your damages.
Compensation for Truck Accident Victims
Since trucking accidents typically result in higher levels of destruction
and can expose trucking companies to extreme financial liability, it is
not uncommon for these types of injury claims to yield higher settlements
motor vehicle accident claims. As such, you can generally expect a truck accident claim to be more aggressively
defended by the at-fault trucking company's insurance provider. Our team
of attorneys are prepared to go the distance to ensure you are fully compensated
for your injuries, even if that means going to trial.
We can help you seek compensation for the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and other income
- Pain and suffering
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Wrongful death (if a loved one was killed)
