Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Cartersville

Truck accidents tend to happen because a truck driver or the parent trucking company acts negligently. Understanding the exact type of negligence is important while building your claim. We will want to conduct a thorough investigation to see what happened, why, and why that means you should be owed full compensation.

Common truck accident causes in Cartersville include:

  • Driving while exhausted
  • Intoxication or impairment
  • Speeding
  • Overloaded trailers
  • Truck part defects
  • Unsafe lane changes

When we are working on a truck accident case, we always want to see how the negligence can be traced back to the truck driver’s employer. Filing a claim against an individual truck driver is difficult and might not yield much due to limited insurance policies. If we can file against the trucking company instead or as a second defendant, then it could mean that we can get you more compensation for your losses, so we never rule this out. 

Federal Trucking Regulations

Truck accident cases can be more complicated than a typical car accident case for many reasons, including Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. The FMCSA sets rules that all commercial vehicles must follow, no matter where in the country they are operated.

FMCSA regulations set limits and rules for the following and more:

  • Truck total weight
  • Truck driver shift length and frequency
  • Truck speed limits
  • Proper ways to secure cargo

If the truck driver who hit you or the parent trucking company violated one or more FMCSA regulations, then it could be used against them and take any liability off your shoulders. Let us investigate the situation to see if the truck accident was caused or worsened by an FMCSA rule violation.

Common Injuries in Cartersville Truck Accident Cases

It is common for truck accidents to result in catastrophic injuries suffered by motorists in the smaller vehicle. Even at relatively low speeds, a massive commercial truck carries an enormous amount of force. In a collision, the force will be mostly imparted on the smaller vehicle, which is why the people inside are often seriously injured.

Catastrophic injuries reported in truck accidents often include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Back and shoulder injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Broken limbs
  • Permanent scarring
