Truck Injury FAQ
Understanding Your Rights After a Trucking Accident
Statistically, trucks cause accidents. It is shocking to hear that 12% of traffic-related deaths and 4% of traffic-related injuries involve an 18 wheeler or a tractor-trailer. Because of their sheer size, when a truck is involved in an accident, it usually puts other people in danger and causes significantly more damage than other passenger vehicle related accidents. Driving a truck carries with it more risks as well. Trucks are more prone to blind-spot related accidents as well as accidents involving fatigue. Truckers are often under pressure to make deadlines, and drive over their allotted time limit which causes them to fall asleep at the wheel. Whatever the cause of the truck accident, the damage it is likely to cause probably isn't minor.
You may be left with a lot of questions after your truck accident. Maybe you are wondering what you are likely to recover after your accident or what you can be compensated if you are partially at fault for your accident. Every question you are likely to have is complicated, differing from case to case. After being involved in an accident with a commercial truck, you may be unsure of how soon you can file or how long you can wait to file a claim. It is best to seek the help of a legal professional in these situations because they are familiar with trucking regulations and dealing with trucking companies.
