The causes of semi-truck accidents are many and can range from impaired driving or driver fatigue to a blown tire and faulty maintenance. Truck accidents claims are generally more complicated than a standard car accident claim, and liability can be difficult to pinpoint. Truck drivers, the driver’s employer, the truck owner, and the freight shipper are all potentially liable, depending on the circumstances of the incident.
The weight and size of a tractor trailer can lead to severe injuries, many of which may have long recovery periods and have significant effects on one’s quality of life.
Common truck accident injuries include:
In case of a truck accident, immediately call 911. If possible, do not move any vehicles that were involved in the accident and take photos of the accident scene for your own records.
