Bigger trucks, failure to comply with trucking regulations, and hazardous driving conditions make trucking accidents an extremely common occurrence. Because of the size and weight of trucks, truck accidents are often much more serious than collisions involving passenger cars.
Many truck accidents are preventable and are a result of negligence on the part of the truck driver or truck company. Every year truck accidents are responsible for thousands of back, neck, spinal cord and brain injuries, as well as deaths.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
There are many reasons for trucking accidents:
- Tired drivers
- Aggressive or speeding drivers due to unrealistic schedules
- Large blind spots and failure to install blind spot mirrors
- Long-work shifts for drivers
- Driving while on a cell phone
- Truck jackknifing
- Mechanical failure
- Defective truck components
- Truck cargo overload
Do I Have a Case for a Trucking Accident Lawsuit?
To receive compensation for a trucking accident, it must be proven that the truck driver or truck/trailer company was negligent either in the operation of the vehicle or its maintenance.
There are several factors that can be looked at to determine if you have a case for a trucking accident lawsuit. One of the major factors is adherence to safety standards.
Trucks are required to meet stringent safety standards to ensure that each and every truck is driven, loaded and maintained correctly. If a driver or trucking company fails to comply with these safety standards, dangerous conditions may result. If you believe that the truck driver or trucking company did not follow the stated standards, you may have a case for a trucking accident lawsuit.
