Truck Accident Lawyer in Anchorage
40+ Years' Experience Serving Clients Throughout Alaska
Truck accidents are some of the most dangerous types of accident, often
causing catastrophic damages and injuries. Due to the immense size and
weight of 18-wheelers and tracker-trailers, the likelihood of
serious injuries increase. Because of these dangers, truck drivers and their companies are required
to follow rigorous standards in order to prevent negligent accidents.
However, many times these regulations are not followed properly, causing
innocent victims to pay the price. If you or a loved one has been involved
in a truck accident, you have the right to seek proper compensation for
your injuries and any physical damage to your vehicle or property.

Causes of Truck Accidents in Alaska
Trucks have very little room for error. They typically have blind spots
which make it very difficult for the driver to see surrounding vehicles.
Furthermore, the excessive weight of these trucks makes it extremely difficult
for them to stop or adjust to traffic quickly. Truck drivers are held
to a very high standard. They must obtain a special commercial license,
as well participate in random drug testing and daily maintenance of their
vehicle. If a driver is not following the required protocol, or the trucking
company fails to adhere to the
regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), accidents are sure to occur.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Reckless lane changing or speeding
- Driving under the influence
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Violation of the trucking regulations
- Improperly secure load
- Vehicle malfunctions
