Trucking Accident Attorneys
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.
Large trucks present a serious hazard for other motorists on the road because of their:
- Immense size
- The high speeds at which they tend to travel
- Limited visibility
- And other factors

We understand that such accidents have devastating consequences, which is why we offer compassionate assistance through every step of the legal process.
What Are the Most 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 are 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.
What Compensation Is Available 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 than traditional 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)
