Relentlessly Fighting for Our Clients

Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson Attorneys at Law can call upon a network of experts, such as accident reconstruction specialists, automotive engineers, and safety engineers to have the tractor and trailer inspected and to shed light on the condition of the truck and its freight prior to the crash.

From over-the-road tractor trailers (18-wheelers) to delivery vehicles, dump trucks, logging trucks and heavy machinery, we know how to proficiently guide the investigation. We have won damages by revealing neglected repairs and upkeep, falsified maintenance or inspection reports, and violations of trucking regulations.

The following are all common causes of truck accidents:

  • Bald tires, worn brake components, or faulty air brakes
  • Slippage of the fifth wheel trailer hitch
  • Exceeding federal or local weight restrictions
  • Failing to secure freight per DOT specifications
  • Illegally transporting or improperly securing hazardous materials
  • Loose or broken mud flaps, tarps, tie-downs, or rear latches
  • Insufficient reflective tape, reflectors, or running lights

Overweight trucks require substantially greater stopping distance. Shifting cargo makes a truck dangerously unstable. Falling cargo or debris is a grave hazard to trailing vehicles. We have handled every manifestation of maintenance and cargo negligence, from rear-end and head-on collisions to jackknifed semis and multi-vehicle pile-ups.

Our lawyers have the experience and resources to sort it out and trace it back to the trucking company and any third parties, such as manufacturers, truck repair shops, freight consolidation companies, or customers who loaded trucks.

If you suspect an overloaded, poorly loaded, or poorly maintained truck is to blame, contact Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson Attorneys at Law for aggressive and thorough representation. Schedule a free consultation with one of our truck accident lawyers in Salt Lake City.
