Truck accidents don’t just happen. In fact, many personal injury attorneys for plaintiffs take issue with the fact of calling them “accidents” at all because that implies it was something random that couldn’t have been avoided. The reality is truck accidents happen for a reason, and that reason is usually negligence on behalf of the truck driver or parent trucking company.
At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we know how to conduct thorough investigations into truck accidents. Our goal is to determine the cause with exactness that makes it hard for the defendant to challenge later.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Truck driver exhaustion, often worsened by long shifts.
- Speeding, often to complete a route in less time.
- Unsafe lane changes like failing to signal and not giving drivers time to move out of blind spots.
- Unsecured cargo and trailers, which can drop cargo into the road or cause a tip-over accident.
Liability in Truck Accident Claims
In a personal injury claim, like a truck accident claim, liability or fault can make the biggest difference in a plaintiff’s case. The higher the defendant’s liability, the more compensation you can demand from them. To prove liability and that it shouldn’t belong to you, our team can use a variety of evidence types and back them with skilled arguments from our settlement negotiators and litigators.
Evidence that we can use in a truck accident claim could include:
- Commercial truck hours-of-service log
- Photographs and video footage
- Eyewitness statements
- First responder accident reports
Furthermore, liability in trucking accident claims is rarely placed on the truck driver alone. An investigation can reveal that the trucking company that employed or hired the truck driver is liable for the crash, too. For example, if a truck driver without a commercial driver’s license crashed into you, then the trucking company could be liable for employing someone unfit for the job.
Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents
The injuries caused by truck accidents are often catastrophic or life-changing. A collision between a heavy commercial truck and a passenger vehicle is devastating to the smaller vehicle. Even with great safety systems in the vehicle, the passengers can be severely injured.
Catastrophic injuries often associated with truck accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Whiplash and neck injuries
Truck Accident Claim Compensation
Losses caused by a truck accident can be pursued through an injury claim. This process is more complicated than it seems in wording, though. The defendant is sure to deny liability and try to pay as little as possible to you. To confidently pursue the full amount of compensation owed to you after a truck accident, you should leave the detailed work up to our team.
We can see if you are owed compensation for:
- Past and future medical treatment costs
- Lost wages and reduced future income
- Pain and suffering
- Costs associated with permanent disabilities
FMCSA Regulations for Commercial Trucks
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is the government agency in charge of setting and enforcing safety regulations for commercial trucking companies and their drivers. A truck accident case can be complicated by these regulations if the crash happened because one or more regulations were violated. Our Dallas truck accident drivers have a detailed knowledge of FMCSA regulations and how they can be relevant to your case.
Important FMCSA regulations include those related to:
- Scheduling hours
- Break times
- Truck weight limits
- Speed limits
