We serve clients in all types of accident matters in North Little Rock, Conway, Hot Springs, Pine Bluff and Cabot and throughout the surrounding areas of Arkansas.

Our lawyers represent clients injured in truck accidents caused by:

  • Fatigue: Due to the pressures of the job to cover more miles more quickly, many drivers violate trucking laws by driving many hours straight without sleep. Obviously this type of fatigue slows reaction times and drastically increases the probability for accidents.
  • Improper loads: To fulfill their intense delivery demands, drivers often overload their trailers above regulation weight and size limitations, limiting maneuverability and increasing the chance of an accident.
  • Drugs and alcohol: Obviously, combining drugs and alcohol with driving is extremely dangerous. With the pressures and loneliness of the truck driving profession, however, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to drive under the influence.
  • Dangerous driving: General poor driving, exceeding the speed limit, driving too fast for conditions and other forms of dangerous driving are the cause of many trucking accidents.

Most of the causes of truck accidents involve direct violations of the strict state and federal laws regulating the trucking industry. Our lawyers know the laws in this area and we can uncover logbook violations, evidence of drug or alcohol use and other violations. We know how to build a winning case.
