Alabama Fatal Truck Accident Lawyers

Losing someone close to you is arguably one of the toughest challenges a person or family can experience in life. When a life is lost prematurely, at the hands of another person’s negligence, then dealing with this loss can be all the more difficult. Truck accidents, when ending fatally, generally result in the loss of life to the victim in the smaller passenger vehicle. The physical characteristics of large semi-trailer trucks make it very difficult for victims to survive these tragic accidents.

If you have lost someone close to you in a fatal truck accident, seek the service of the experienced Alabama fatal truck accident lawyers here at Wettermark & Keith, LLC., today. Our compassionate attorneys understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for you and are here for you in any way they can help.


Data compiled by the Alabama Department of Public Safety shows that for the year 2008, there were 93 fatal truck accidents across the state. Within these fatal accidents:

  • 75 trucks had semi-trailers attached
  • 12 trucks had a form of utility trailer attached
  • 2 trucks carried a utility pole attachment
  • 3 trucks were attached to tanker trailers
  • 3 trucks were pulling double trailers

The addition of a trailer leads these commercial vehicles to be even more dangerous to other motorists on the road. Large vehicles with trailers or hazardous cargo take longer to stop and add to the vehicle’s already large mass. On average, a fully loaded truck pulling a semi-trailer can weigh in as much as 80,000lbs. Compare this to the average weight of a typical passenger vehicle, typically 2,000 – 3,500 pounds and it becomes clear why so many of these accidents end tragically.
