Knight Transportation Truck Accident Attorney

Knight Transportation employs more than 5000 workers in truck drivers. The publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (KNX) allows it to operate more than 4000 tractors pulling over 8800 trailers nationwide. The company offers numerous delivery solutions, including Drive van, intermodal, refrigerated, brokerage, dedicated, and rail & port services.

In 1991, the company generated $13 million in annual income. By 2018, Knight Transportation generated an annual revenue of $906 million. Currently, the company operates 25 locations nationwide from Oregon to California, Florida to Pennsylvania.

Knight Transportation is an LTL (less than truckload) carrier, meaning the company delivers mixed freight. This type of trucking is opposite a Truckload (LT) carrier that delivers trucks containing similar products, goods, and materials to multiple locations.

Accidents Involving Knight Transportation

According to statistics maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are approximately half a million trucking accidents occur every year in America. These accidents result in more than 5000 fatalities, including the deaths of truck drivers, other motorists, passengers, motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

Like all major trucking companies, Knight Transportation maintains tight schedules where truckers work long hours to ensure shipments arrive on time. This demand for optimal customer service places a significant burden and stress level on the truck driver who must meet their deadlines. As a result, Knight transportation deals with hundreds of accidents with and without injuries and wrongful death. A small sample of recent Knight Transportation accidents includes:

  • Accident on December 9, 2019 – The Laredo Police Department filed a report of a Knight Transportation-owned summary tractor-trailer involved in a two-vehicle crash during daylight hours on General Milton Dr., Laredo, TX. The accident resulted in one injury.

Common Causes of Semi-truck Accidents​

Statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed many of the common causes associated with large commercial vehicles in the United States that include:

  • Aggressive Behavior – Aggressively operating a vehicle could result in wrongful death or severe injuries of innocent passengers and motorists.
  • Driving Distracted – The trucker should never use their mobile phone, send text messages, or read their email while operating their commercial vehicle. Distracted driving could lead to severe harm or death.
  • Driving Drowsy – Maintaining tight schedules often means the trucker must drive for hours on end, which can lead to fatigue and drowsy driving.
  • Driving under the Influence – If the truckers involved in an accident, law enforcement will often perform a test at the accident scene to determine if the truck driver consumed alcohol or took illegal drugs.
  • Improperly Loaded or Overloaded Cargo – If the worker overloads or incorrectly loads the tractor-trailer, any shift in the cargo can cause a serious problem when in transport. The shipment may move unexpectedly and cause a rollover.

Sometimes, the commercial trucker is found to be responsible for causing an accident because of their erratic movements because they are tired, fatigued, or meeting the demands of the tight schedule. In these cases, lawyers can obtain financial compensation for their clients because they proved the trucker, and the trucking company failed to maintain a safe environment for those sharing the roadway, which led to an accident.

Financial Remedy for Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Truck-Related Crash

Any victim has suffered an injury or lost a loved one because of a large commercial truck accident can file a lawsuit and seek damages from every party at fault. Successfully resolving your case requires abiding by Texas tort laws when filing a claim with the insurance company or presenting a case in front of a judge and jury. The rules involving compensation cases are complex. Typically, injured parties have the right to file a lawsuit to litigate there to a judge or file a claim and negotiate an acceptable settlement with the insurance company to ensure that all responsible parties at fault pay damages.

Filing a truck accident claim for compensation ensures that the victim can receive economic recovery for their damages it, including:

  • Hospital bills, medical costs, and expenses of rehab and therapies
  • Past, present and future earnings because of a permanent or temporary disability
  • Car rental while your vehicle is under repair
  • Temporary or permanent loss of your truck or car
  • Mental stress and emotional anguish
  • Pain and suffering
