Advocating For Your Tractor Trailer Accident Injuries

The insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying you fair compensation for your injury. They may offer to send you to their own doctors and try to convince you to take a settlement. They will also tell you that you don’t need a lawyer. Don’t listen to them. In fact, don’t even talk to them at all before seeking legal representation.

How Do Tractor Trailer and Commercial Vehicle Accidents Happen?

Some of the common causes of truck accidents include the following:

  • Truck driver fatigue — Drivers may fail to follow federal regulations concerning driving hours and rest breaks, resulting in tired drivers and slow reaction time.
  • Truck driver carelessness — Some drivers operate laptop computers or other hand-held devices or even watch videos while driving. Others are simply careless when passing, turning, or changing lanes.
  • Driver’s use of alcohol and drugs — Some drivers take over-the-counter or illegal medications or consume alcohol before driving.
  • Road Hazards — These days, there are many potential dangerous terrains that truck drivers are sometimes prone to endure on the road. Trucking companies may also fail to keep their vehicles in top running condition to withstand these hazards.
  • Defective truck components — A tire, brakes, or another critical truck component can fail due to defects in design or manufacture.
