Truck Accidents Archives

Struck by a truck? You have legal options

Semitruck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Others on the roads depend on this so that they can get to their destination without getting into a crash. When truckers aren't doing what they are supposed to do, which is pay attention to the road, there is a chance that people on the roads might be injured or killed.

Trucking crashes must be handled swiftly when there are injuries

When a semitruck slams into a passenger vehicle, the people in the vehicle will likely suffer from serious injuries. This is especially true if the accident occurs at interstate speeds. After the crash, anyone who was injured will need to seek medical care. This is important because victims need to ensure that any medical conditions for which they are being treated don't get worse.

Compensation might be in order after a big rig accident

We recently discussed distracted trucking and touched on how this can quickly turn deadly. There are some instances in which a trucker's distraction doesn't result in a fatal injury but it does end with an innocent victim having to deal with a life-altering injury like one that impacts the brain or spinal cord. In these cases, the victim might decide to take action in court.

Distracted truckers can turn a big rig into a deadly weapon

Many people acknowledge that driving while distracted is a horrible idea. No matter what type of vehicle you are driving, you are putting lives at risk when you aren't paying attention to the road. Truckers who opt to do things while they drive are putting many people in danger. The size and weight of those vehicles mean that they are potentially deadly projectiles when the driver isn't giving his or her full attention to the road.

Think about the factors affecting a semitruck crash

The risks that people take when they get on the roads each day are considerable. People who are driving on the interstates and highways are at risk of being stuck by a semitruck. When this does happen, there is a good chance that the victim is going to suffer very serious injuries.
