Causes of Trucking Accidents

Truckers haul large, potentially dangerous loads and often push themselves beyond acceptable limits. Common causes of trucking accidents include rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, T-bone accidents and under-ride collisions.

In addition, rollover accidents account for over half of trucking accidents nationwide. Rollovers typically happen when truck drivers do not adjust their speed to compensate for the roadway. Rollover accidents are also attributed to improperly secured loads, malfunctioning braking equipment and road conditions. Driver impairment accounts for a significant portion of collisions as well.

In many cases, truck drivers may claim that the driver made sudden lane changes, drove in the “no-zone” or otherwise created unsafe conditions. If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, you need an experienced injury attorney on your side.

The Impact of Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents at any speed can be severe, leading to serious injuries and heavy financial burdens. The inability to work due to trauma can lead to significant decreases in income. Insurance companies may not cover healthcare expenses.

Physical injuries can last for weeks, months or years. Trucking accidents can cause lifelong disability, spinal damage and traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI and damage to the spinal cord can cause permanent disability and lead to years of costly rehabilitation.

A personal injury lawyer experienced with trucking accidents will work to determine responsibility.

Determining Responsibility in Trucking Accidents
