There are many causes of moving truck and U-Haul truck accidents. Some of these can be attributed to the negligent actions of other drivers on the road, while some may be due to the lackluster or absent inspection by U-Haul itself. A few of the most common factors contributing to serious truck accidents are as follows:

If you were injured in a U-Haul truck accident, you should take legal action with the assistance of our firm.
A common question asked by many of our clients is whether the rental truck company can be held at fault (liable) for injuries in an accident involving the rented truck. Rental truck liability can be limited by the waiver in the terms and conditions that are signed by individuals renting the vehicle. Other restrictions on liability may be placed by specific California and Federal laws limiting the liability of truck rental companies. In general, though, it is very difficult to hold U-Haul or any other truck rental company liable, as they merely provided the vehicle and not the driver. If the driver behaved negligently, the company could not control that because he is not an employee. In situations where the U-Haul company provides a vehicle to someone who legally should not have been on the road, such as an underage driver, a driver without a license, or a driver lacking sufficient auto insurance, then the company can be held liable. All drivers must have these basic qualifications in order to rent. U-Haul must also not rent a truck to anyone who appears to be visibly intoxicated. As such, possible unorthodox avenues of litigation may be available against truck rental companies for the renting of defective trucks, and against parts manufacturers for defective truck trailers and hooks.
In many instances, defective auto parts are the chief cause of truck accidents. Generally, there are three way attorneys for an injured client to prove the existence of a defective product. They are:
Some U-Haul trucks may not have stickers on them that warn of wide turns or that implore other drivers to not pass on the right. There may also not be signs for wide loads and caustic materials being transported. If you are involved in an accident with such a truck, you can take legal action.
Accidents are possible also when dropping off or picking up the rental truck – or even walking onto the dealer for information. These dealer locations are everywhere. One of the most common types of personal injury accidents that could occur on any premise, including moving truck dealer locations, includes slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents are possible any time that there is a slip hazard present on the premises; typically, if an unsuspecting party on the property steps into a slip hazard, like a wet floor, or slippery floor, for instance, a slip and fall could occur and could lead to injuries. In U-Haul Dealer locations, a common hazard is oil on the floor. In fact, this is a common hazard anywhere were vehicles come and go; oil spills can be hard to avoid and can quickly cause unsuspecting parties to fall.
Some of the injuries that could result from slip and falls caused by oil on the floor of U-Haul Dealer locations include the following:
Some of the injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents can cause permanent damage. Some of the injuries caused by slip and falls can be fatal. Regardless of the harm suffered, it is important for victims ad their families to know that they could sue based on the concept of premise liability – and they could fight to be compensated.
Recovery for your damages in a traffic accident involving a U-Haul rental truck and moving vans is dependent on many factors. The insurance agent responsible for handling your case will determine the value of your claim by measuring different parts of it. He will look at the extent of the injuries you suffered and consider how much of an impact they had on your daily life, extended life, and present and future career opportunities. Minor injuries that are not too afflicting will lead to small settlement offers, while major damages will naturally net higher rewards. A dedicated and experienced abogado de lesiones personales will be able to establish a claim for compensation to receive restitution for the following:
Victims of personal injury are allotted a specific time period for filing a lawsuit in the court of law. The statute of limitations for filing a case is determined by the jurisdiction where the case will be tried. For example, the statute of limitations for filing an injury lawsuit in civil court in two years from the date of the accident, while it is six years in the state of Maine. California law dictates that the plaintiff has 2 years to sue. To find the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in your state see here. There are a few ways in which the statute of limitations can be extended. This is possible in scenarios where the victim is underage (minors can sue when they turn 18 and follow the statute then), physically or mentally compromised (individuals in comas or who suffered mental breakdowns can wait until the return to health before adhering to the statute of limitations), or is not able to locate the defendant in the state (the statute will resume when the defendant returns).
