Common Truck Accident Causes in Calhoun

Truck drivers must always operate their vehicles with heightened caution. If they do not, then they could unfairly put everyone on the road at a greater risk of a truck accident.

When we accept a new truck accident case, one of the first questions we ask is, “What did the truck driver do wrong?” An investigation into the circumstances can reveal what happened and why. Indeed, it is not unusual for our team to then ask, “What did the trucking company do wrong?”

Causes of truck accidents can vary, such as:

  • Truck driver exhaustion
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Unsecured cargo

What It Takes to Determine Fault

Fault in a truck accident claim is important. We want to prove that none of the fault falls on you, so you can demand the fullest amount of compensation possible. The same investigative skills that help us figure out the cause of a truck accident can be used to determine fault or liability, too.

For example, if a truck driver crashed due to falling asleep behind the wheel, it might make sense to blame the truck driver. Yet an investigation could reveal that the fault also lies on the trucking company that made the truck driver work such long, unreasonable hours. No matter how complicated liability becomes in your truck accident case, we will be ready to handle all related questions and concerns on your behalf.

Common Injuries in Truck Accident Cases

A commercial big rig can weigh up to 80,000 pounds without violating federal shipping regulations. Such a massive vehicle traveling at highway speeds creates a tremendous amount of force. In a collision, that force is imparted mostly to the smaller vehicle, which is why truck accident cases involve catastrophic injuries so often.

Injuries that are often listed in truck accident claims include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
  • Whiplash and neck injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Amputations

Damages in a Truck Accident Claim

What damages are owed to you as the survivor of a truck accident? This question is one of the most important that will arise in your truck accident claim. We want you to recover as much as possible from the collision and its consequences. This is only possible if we know with a high degree of accuracy how much you have suffered or lost due to the crash.

We can work with medical experts who can tell us about the permanent or semi permanent symptoms of your injuries. We can also talk with financial analysts to understand how badly your finances and income-earning capability have been damaged due to related complications. With this information in hand, we will be better prepared to calculate your damages and demand them from the defendant.

Damages in a truck accident claim could help pay for:

  • Past and future medical treatment costs
  • Lost wages, including future unearned wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability complications and hardships

Truck Accident Case Complications

When working on a truck accident case, we need to keep an eye on anything that could cause a complication that doesn’t occur in most other case types. For example, commercial trucks are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which sets rules regarding weight, speed, hours of service, and even specific routes for different types of cargo. If the truck accident happened because an FMCSA regulation was violated, then it could add to the complexity of your case while also giving us another avenue to explore when proving liability. Make sure that you work with a legal team that will know how to approach these specific situations.
