When starting a truck accident case for a client, we need to get a full understanding of what caused the crash. Truck accidents don’t just happen. They are caused by negligence, recklessness, or intentional wrongdoing. More specifically, many truck accidents are caused by the mistakes of the truck driver and the company that employed them.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Exhausted driving
- Inexperienced truck drivers
- Intoxicated or impaired driving
- Incorrectly loaded trailers and cargo
- Defective truck parts
Determining Fault After a Truck Crash
The defendant in a truck accident case might not be the truck driver. Instead, it is common to name the truck driver’s employer as a defendant because employers can be held liable for the mistakes of an employee. Furthermore, an investigation might show that the trucking company acted negligently itself. If this is the case, then your case might involve multiple defendants and insurance policies.
For example, imagine that a trucking company hired a new driver without checking if that employee has a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Later, the same truck driver causes a truck accident. In this situation, it could be argued that the trucking company is partially liable for its negligent hiring practices that did not even bother to check for the applicant’s CDL.
Common Truck Accident Injuries
Commercial trucks, big rigs, and semi-trucks are incredibly heavy compared to the average passenger vehicle. As a result, it is not unusual for a truck accident to cause people in the smaller vehicle to suffer life-changing injuries. At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC in Adairsville, we have the experience, resources, and talents needed to handle truck accident claims that involve any type of injury, damage, or loss.
Catastrophic injuries caused by truck accidents can include:
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Head and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Sensory losses like deafness or blindness
- Serious bone fractures
- Permanent disfigurements
If you lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, then you could have the right to demand compensation from the party or parties that caused the crash. We are talented truck accident lawyers who can also handle wrongful death claims with sensitivity and compassion. We would be honored to help you explore your legal options, so you can focus on grieving.
Damages for Truck Accident Claimants
A truck accident claim can be linked to thousands and thousands of dollars in damages, if not more. It depends on how badly you were injured in the crash, and how those injuries affected your day-to-day life.
In your claim, the damages owed to you could help pay for:
- Past and future medical treatment costs
- Lost wages and future income
- Permanent disability complications
- Pain and suffering
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Reduced life expectancy
Our Adairsville truck accident lawyers can handle truck accident cases in conference room negotiations for a confidential settlement. However, when the situation calls for it, we can also take lawsuits to court for litigation. The bottom line is that we will stand by your side, no matter how challenging it might be.
What Makes Truck Accident Cases So Complicated?
Every personal injury case can get complicated for a variety of reasons. Yet truck accident cases tend to be among the most complicated of auto accident cases.
What makes a truck accident case so complicated?
- Size: The sheer size of a commercial truck makes it inherently dangerous to smaller vehicles on the road. The large size and weight also make a big rig far more likely to cause a violent accident that results in catastrophic injuries.
- Damages: The damages in a truck accident claim can be significant due to the likelihood that the impact causes serious injuries and vehicular damages. It is not unusual for a truck accident claim’s value to far exceed the typical value of a car accident.
- Defendants: The defendants in an injury claim will usually give you a difficult time and not accept liability. The same is true in a truck accident claim, except the defendants might be backed by massive insurance companies that represent trucking companies.
- Federal regulations: Truck accident claims are also complicated due to the federal regulations that can apply to the accident and related situations, such as weight and speed limits set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
