Causes of Truck Accidents
Commercial trucks are large, carry heavy loads, and cannot stop as quickly as other vehicles. The federal and state governments heavily regulate the safety of the trucking industry, but accidents still happen. To avoid truck accidents, it is helpful to know their causes, such as:
- Drowsy driving. Some truck drivers will drive beyond the point of safety due to delivery deadlines and traffic delays. Drowsy driving may slow down the truck driver’s reflexes or result in a driver falling asleep at the wheel.
- Mechanical failures. Faulty equipment or improper maintenance of a truck, including tire blowouts and tread loss, or faulty brakes, can easily lead to an accident involving one, or multiple vehicles.
- Distracted driving. Truck drivers must meet a schedule and may regularly eat, text, talk on the phone, use their GPS, and the CB radio while driving.
- Lack of training. Inexperienced drivers may not have the skills needed to maneuver a truck in inclement weather or make difficult turns.
- Blind spots. Commercial truck drivers cannot see always see vehicles positioned in front of the cab, behind the driver’s window, on the right side of the truck, or directly behind the driver.
Truck Accident Injuries and Compensation
Commercial trucks weigh significantly more than passenger cars, sometimes twenty to thirty times as much. This difference often results in catastrophic injuries to other motorists.
Truck accident injuries may include:
- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Back and neck injuries, including whiplash
- Broken bones and fractures
- Spinal injuries and paralysis
- Wrongful death
Due to the nature of truck accidents and the severity of injuries incurred by those involved, compensation may be significantly more than in other types of vehicle accidents. Compensation demanded generally includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Nursing care
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
