Truck Accident Laws

Every year, over 400,000 accidents occur in the US involving commercial trucks. With almost ten percent of these proving fatal, commercial truck accidents cause a significant portion of road-related fatalities.

As with any other vehicular accident, fault for the accident might lie with either party. If the fault lies with the truck driver, though, any attempt to gain appropriate compensation could become very complicated.

Situations under which a truck driver might be found liable for an accident include:

  • Driver impairment
  • Driver fatigue
  • Insufficient vehicle maintenance
  • Improperly secured vehicle load
  • Driver distraction or reckless driving

Because commercial trucks and drivers perform their jobs under regulations specific to their industry, pursuing litigation in cases of commercial truck accidents is often more complex than dealing with other types of vehicular accidents. Also involved in the proceedings are negotiations and interaction with large commercial companies and the bureaucracy that naturally comes along with them.

  • Rental car expenses while your car is being repaired
  • Compensation for trauma and mental distress
  • Lost wages
  • Cost of car repairs
