Truck accidents involve unique issues, and are often caused by truck drivers who fail to brake correctly, refuse to allow another vehicle to merge, drive too fast for the conditions, are fatigued, or swing too wide when making turns. Truck drivers also cause accidents when they shed tires or other objects on the road, drive a load which is too big, heavy or not properly secured, fail to properly inspect tires, brakes and lights, or are driving defective or poorly maintained rigs. Quite often, truck drivers work illegally long work shifts and have unrealistic schedules that make them drive negligently.
It is therefore important to hire an aggressive and knowledgeable truck accident attorney familiar with these issues, who will conduct a prompt investigation of the accident and your injuries, who has credibility with truck insurance companies, and who will work energetically to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
Accidents involving trucks more often result in severe injuries or death due to the enormous difference in the size and weight of trucks relative to passenger cars and other vehicles. As set forth in national government statistics, 24,000 people were injured in 2013 in crashes involving large trucks, and 691 were killed.
Anyone involved in an injury accident with a truck should contact a personal injury accident attorney as soon as they are able. Delay in speaking with a personal injury attorney can result in the loss or compromise of important information and hinder an optimal investigation from being conducted.
