What Caused My Truck Accident?
Like all auto accidents, there are many different factors that frequently cause big rig crashes. However, these causes can often be even more complex and involve numerous at-fault parties. These are some of the most common truck accident causes:
- Dangerous actions taken by truck drivers, such as driving drunk, speeding, or improperly handling their vehicles.
- Truck drivers who violate state and federal regulations, including the Hours-of-Service rules and guidelines regarding work schedules.
- Trucking companies who incentivize or threaten drivers into breaking the law, leading to dangerous behavior on the road.
- Failing truck parts that cause the driver to lose control or the big rig to break down on the road. This can lead to major incidents like a jackknife or a runaway trailer.
- Dangerous roads that are either poorly designed or that have been seriously damaged and left unrepaired by responsible government agencies.
- Other passenger vehicle drivers who act recklessly, leading to a chain reaction on the road that involves a tractor trailer.
By investigating your crash and collecting both evidence and eye witness testimony, you can better understand the chain of events that led to the incident.
How Do I Prove Fault in a Big Rig Crash?
Once you have fully understood how your crash happened, you can determine who or what caused it. The evidence and testimony collected will not only help you understand the cause of the accident, but also be used to form a legal case and prove your claim.
During your case, you and an experienced attorney will set out to prove that the at-fault party, such as a truck driver, trucking company, or truck manufacturer, acted negligently or recklessly and that this is what caused the accident. Photos of the crash, police reports, testimony, expert opinions, medical records of injuries, and crash reconstruction will combine to successfully prove fault.
What Compensation Could I Receive?
Because of the severe damage that is easily caused by a large truck crash, victims can suffer devastating injuries, disabilities, and the deaths of loved ones. When medical bills, lost work capabilities, and the emotional toll of the crash combine, it is easy for victims to sustain hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in damage. Thankfully, the compensation given by at-fault parties and their insurance providers can cover the severe debt caused by injuries, as well as any future needs and losses, such as rehabilitation or a continued inability to work.
Medical records, evaluations, and projections of the cost of continued car should be combined with all bills that have already been caused by the accident. This will give an accurate representation of how much compensation you should be given.
