Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are often the result of several factors or parties' negligence. In some cases, it is the trucker themselves who are to blame for the collision. However, in many cases, it is actually the trucking company that is at fault.

Trucking companies are notorious for pushing their drivers to the absolute limit, often forcing them to work long hours and to skip mandatory rest breaks. This is done in an effort to increase profits and to ensure that shipments are made as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, this puts other motorists at risk.

The most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Truck driver negligence
  • Trucking company negligence
  • Defective truck parts/equipment
  • Improperly secured cargo
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Truck maintenance issues
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Aggressive driving

Truck accidents can also be caused by other negligent motorists, as well as defective roads. In any case, it is important to consult with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Magee to learn about your rights and legal options.

Seeking Compensation for Your Injuries

Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks, the injuries caused by truck accidents are often catastrophic and life-altering. In many cases, they are fatal. Those who survive truck accidents are often left with debilitating and permanent injuries that require lifelong medical treatment and care.

The most common injuries caused by truck accidents include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe head injuries
  • Amputations/loss of limb
  • Burn injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash

These injuries often require extensive medical treatment, including multiple surgeries, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and more. In many cases, injured individuals are unable to return to work and are therefore left without a source of income. This can put significant financial strain on them and their families, making it difficult to pay for their medical bills and other expenses.

If you or your loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is important to consult with a truck accident attorney in Magee about your rights and options. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, one of the first things that must be determined is liability. This is because, in order to recover compensation, you must be able to prove that the other party was negligent and that their negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries.

In some cases, determining liability is relatively straightforward. For example, if the truck driver was drunk at the time of the accident and caused the collision, they would likely be considered liable. Similarly, if the trucking company failed to properly maintain the truck, causing a mechanical failure that led to the accident, they would likely be held liable.

However, in many cases, multiple parties are at least partially to blame for a truck accident. This is why it is so important to work with a Magee truck accident lawyer who can conduct a thorough investigation into the crash and help you identify all potentially liable parties.

Some of the parties that may be liable for a truck accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • A truck manufacturer or distributor
  • The truck's maintenance crew or company
  • Another negligent motorist
  • A government agency responsible for maintaining the roads

If you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, you can still recover compensation. However, your total recovery will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for the accident and you are awarded $100,000 in damages, your total recovery would be reduced by $20,000.

This is why it is so important to work with an experienced truck accident attorney who can help you build a strong case and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
