Common Trucking Accidents

semi truck driving on the highwayBecause of the devastating injuries often sustained in trucking accidents, trucking companies implement strict regulations in hopes of minimizing the occurrence of them. Among other regulations, truck drivers must follow rules regarding how often they take breaks and what the weight limit is for their cargo. Despite these standards, trucking accidents still take place and can significantly alter the life of those involved.

Common types of trucking accidents include:

  • Swinging turns  Accidents often result if a truck swings to the left before making a right turn, makes too wide of a turn, or makes a turn that isn’t wide enough.
  • Tire blowouts — Because of the long distances and the heavy cargo loads, wear and tear on tires is common.
  • Improperly loaded cargo — If a driver loads too much onto the truck or does not ensure cargo is secured properly, it can result in serious accidents.
  • Blind spot accidents — Truck drivers have blind spots on their left and right sides.
  • Rollovers  Due to the heavy weight of trucks, when drivers lose control, the entire truck often rolls over.
  • Malfunctioning brakes — With the sheer weight of a big rig, the brakes must be in proper working order to stop the truck as necessary.

Determining Truck Accident Liability

Sometimes it can be hard to know who to put the blame on when filing a truck accident lawsuit. Is it the truck driver who should pay for your injuries? Or the trucking company?

West Virginia allows for claimants to hold trucking companies vicariously liable for the actions of their truck drivers. The best way to determine who you should be filing your lawsuit against is to speak with a West Virginia truck accident lawyer about the details of your case.

What Will My Truck Accident Settlement Cover?

Following your accident, we will work to obtain a settlement for you that helps cover any of the following costs:

  • Medical treatment expenses (both present and future)
  • Lost wages if you are forced to miss work while recovering
  • Pain and suffering
  • Compensation for any permanent disability resulting from your injuries

If you find yourself suffering the loss of a loved one as a result of the truck accident, we are here for you. While no amount of money can right a wrongful death, we can help you obtain compensation to help offset some of the unexpected medical or funeral costs, as well as punitive damages if your loved one’s death was a result of the trucking company’s negligence.
