Common Causes of Truck Accidents and Injuries
There are a variety of factors that can cause an accident involving a large truck. In some cases, the driver may not have received proper training, weight and size may fail to meet regulations, or equipment may not have been properly maintained. Some companies impose tight deadlines, which can cause a driver to speed and forego making stops to rest, creating dangerous conditions for themselves and other vehicles on the road. In some instances, an accident is simply due to recklessness on the part of the driver. Speeding, taking drugs or alcohol, and disregarding weather and road conditions can all result in serious accidents.
Accidents involving large trucks usually result in far more serious injuries than those involving smaller vehicles. Vehicle occupants may suffer injuries including:
- Broken bones or fractures
- Spinal cord injury
- Head, neck, or brain injury
- Damage to internal organs
- Loss of limbs
Benefits of Working with an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer
It can be difficult to know what to do after an accident in order to protect your best interests, especially when you are trying to deal with the physical and emotional distress these accidents cause. At Hepworth, Janis & Kluksdal, we can help you through this stressful time and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. We can communicate with insurance companies on your behalf, and conduct our own investigation to determine precisely where fault lays in your case.
We thoroughly understand Idaho trucking industry laws and how those laws affect your case. In most cases, you will receive payment for the damage done to your vehicle well before you receive compensation for your medical expenses and other losses because, by law, these expenses do not have to be paid until the entire claim is resolved.
During the discovery period, we will determine precisely what went wrong and who is at fault, so that the responsible party can be held accountable. Modern semis and large trucks automate many processes with computer software, making true expertise essential to determining what caused an accident. Additionally, many truck drivers are independently contracted for a job rather than employed by a single company. Parties that could be held responsible for your injuries include:
- Truck drivers
- Driving schools and other training entities
- Companies that impose unrealistic deadlines
- Software or parts manufacturers
- Truck manufacturers
- Truck mechanics
