We often think of 18 wheelers as the danger on the roadway. But, 18 wheeler drivers can be just as vulnerable to severe injury and death. When tragedy struck the family of this 18 wheeler driver, they reached out to CMZ to help get answers. Our client’s husband was tragically killed in a wreck on an Arkansas highway when he was struck head on by another 18 wheeler. Initially, law enforcement believed the other vehicle was simply traveling too fast in a construction zone and lost control of his vehicle. But, after employing several experts, it became clear defects in the roadway and poor signage played a role in causing the wreck. The 18 wheeler driver did not realize the pavement was uneven as he went through a curve until it was too late. And, scientific analysis of the trucks “black box” proved he was not traveling too fast. 18 wheeler drivers can be victims of poor highway design, improper lighting, and defective safety features of the trucks they drive. At CMZ, we have experience helping truck drivers who are injured through no fault of their own.
