Accidents caused by large Trucks can cause serious damage to other vehicles and serious injuries to passengers of those vehicles. Despite this there are more trucks on the road every year. There are various factors which may lead to accidents with large Trucks. One such cause is that trucking companies may be trying to save money by hiring fewer drivers and having their current drivers work longer hours which means drivers could be exhausted while driving through traffic in their large commercial trucks. Other factors such as congestion and lack of road maintenance can cause hazardous conditions increasing the chance of accidents with these trucks. At Chuck Franklin Law we have the experience necessary to help you get compensated after an accident with large trucks.
Truck accidents are more likely to be fatal than any other type of automobile accident. Crashes with trucks also tend to cause more damage to vehicles and more injuries to their passengers. Because Truck Drivers are commercial drivers, the causes of accidents can vary drastically from other accidents. Factors such as driver fatigue, poorly secured loads, overloaded trailers and improper vehicle maintenance are all causes of truck accidents on top of the usual causes of accidents such as driver distraction and unsafe driving.
Because of the fact that most trucks on the road are owned by large companies, they generally have insurance and multiple parties can become involved in a case. The driver of the truck can be held responsible for any negligence on his part, as well as the trucking company and any others involved in the maintenance Large Trucking Companies may have various kinds of insurance which could be used to help compensate you for your injuries.
