Semi Truck Accident Lawyers
Due to their nature, most truck accidents result in either death or a serious injury, such as brain trauma, spinal cord damage, or loss of an appendage. For those who survive such catastrophe, victims can expect extensive rehabilitation and lengthy and sometimes painful medical treatment. The wages that add up from this necessary medical care can quickly add up, as can the debt accumulated by no longer being able to earn income due to an inability to work. Combine this with the emotional toll a crash can take on you and your family, and the longterm damage inflicted becomes readily apparent.
What makes this even more devastating is the fact that so many of these accidents can be prevented. Negligence or wrongdoing by the truck driver, trucking company, or some other entity is the cause of most accidents. Common causes include:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver recklessness
- Under the influence driving
- Improper maintenance
- Overloading, failure to secure or failure
to properly balance the load
- Defective vehicle components
- Jackknifing brought about by any of the above
Knowing that they or their driver could be held responsible for an accident, trucking firms will typically put their team of lawyers and insurance experts to work at once. These persons will immediately begin collecting evidence, speaking to witnesses, and more. Because of this, and because of the complex nature of such accidents, you need someone on your team doing these same things.
