When Trucks Cause Serious Accidents on Iowa Roads

Waterloo is located right at the intersection of several major highways — highways like 20, 218 and 380, among others. Because of our location, many large trucks pass through Waterloo on their way to other places. While these large trucks are a big part of business, they can also pose a danger to Iowans. Each year, they cause many serious accidents on Iowa roads.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, talking with the personal injury lawyers at Ball, Kirk & Holm, P.C., is a good way to protect your rights. Our Waterloo law firm has been helping the victims of serious injuries for over 40 years.

Semi Truck Accidents and Complicated Litigation

Truck accident cases often involve the truck driver's trucking company and its insurance company. These defendants are usually not local to Iowa. This means that taking legal action can get complicated.

At Ball, Kirk & Holm, P.C., we are well prepared to effectively manage cases that have out-of-state defendants — and we have the resources to handle even the most serious injuries, from brain injuries, to spinal cord injuries, to the wrongful death of a loved one.

Why Truck Accidents Happen

There are many reasons why truck accidents happen. Drivers are often pushed beyond their limits. They drive too many hours and they fail to take needed rest breaks in violation of federal laws. When they do, driver fatigue often leads to serious injuries.

Truck accidents also happen when drivers fail to use the right amount of care when driving in dangerous road conditions, like snow or rain. When drivers act carelessly, they can lose control of their trucks and jackknife.
