18 Wheeler Accident Attorney in Dothan Alabama

What are some of the common causes of tractor trailer accidents?

  • Aggressive drivers

  • Unrealistic schedules

  • Failure to inspect tires, brakes and lights

  • Tailgating

  • Long work-shifts

  • Driver fatigue

  • Cell phone use

  • Failure to install blind spot mirrors

  • Jackknifing

  • Speeding and ignoring reduced truck speed limit

Added hazards include the absence of rear and side bumpers and high front bumpers that punch into automobile passenger compartments. Together, these factors account for the high percentage of serious injuries and deaths in these crashes.


The major trucking companies will immediately have lawyers hired and working for them. The scene must be secure. Photographs and statements must be taken as soon after the accident as possible. Many important pieces of evidence helpful to you can be lost, misplaced or be purposely destroyed.

You might be asking: "How do I deal with trucking companies or their insurance carriers after a truck accident?"

The best advice is not to deal with them.  The first thing you should do is contact an expert truck accident lawyer such as Attorney Bill Odum. The last thing you want to do is personally negotiate with a trucking company about your semi truck accident or semi rig injury. Most trucking companies are highly skilled at semi truck accident investigation and claims. Anything you say or sign may be held against you further down the road.
