Our Latest Verdicts and Settlements
Some Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can be caused for a number of reasons, which can include the negligence of truck drivers, the negligence of the drivers of normal passenger vehicles, the negligence of trucking companies, and even the negligence of road agencies, for example. Speeding, tailgating, cutting drivers off, swerving in and out of lanes, brake-checking vehicles, poorly lit roads, and mechanical failures in trucks can all contribute to these dangerous accidents.
Possible Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can cause many different types of injuries. These injuries can include the following:
Head injuries (including traumatic brain injuries and concussions)
Spinal cord injuries
Scrapes and bruises
In many truck accidents – specifically, those in which the passenger vehicle hits the truck in the rear or in the side – an underride occurs. An underride crash is a crash in which the vehicle ends up sliding under the truck. Side underride truck accidents and rear underride truck accidents often result in fatal injuries. Underride incidents are so severe that trucks are actually required by law to have underride guards to prevent the underride.
Can I Sue for Injuries Caused by a Truck Accident?
Yes – you could have grounds to sue for injuries caused by a truck accident. Your right to sue is based on the concept of negligence. The question is who you can sue. Can you sue the driver? Can you sue the driver’s employer (the trucking company)? Can you sue the truck manufacturer? Can you sue the manufacturer of a defective underride guard? Can you sue the road works agency? Depending on the specific details of your accident, you could have a claim against these parties/entities. In some cases, multiple of these parties can be named as defendants in a truck accident lawsuit. Based on the details of the accident, these parties could be found liable for the accident and the harm that you or a loved one suffered.

Can I Recover Compensation?
Yes, you could be entitled to recover compensation. In general, truck accident claims are high-value claims; this is due to the fact that injuries resulting from truck accidents are often severe and that trucks are required to carry large insurance coverage. Your truck accident case can potentially be worth anywhere from $500,000 to $3 million. Some cases may be worth even more.
The compensation available for recovery can include the following:
Pain and suffering
Wrongful death benefits
