Catastrophic Truck Accident Injury

Truck Accident Lawyer Every year, more than 8 million registered trucks are involved in numerous accidents that result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. Pedestrians, drivers, bicyclists and passengers stand little to no chance against the massive size and weight of trucks. As such, even a little impact with a truck may lead to a catastrophic injury for the victim.

 

Causes of Catastrophic Truck Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), every 16 minutes an accident involving a truck or commercial vehicle kills or seriously injures a person. Regardless of whether the truck accident is caused by an act of negligence or a reckless disregard for human life, the resulting damage may forever change the life of the victim and the lives of their loved ones.

Even though the majority of the factors that cause truck accidents are similar to those causing car accidents, the trucking industry is more susceptible to the following unsafe practices that are often the culprit of accidents:

  • Unsafe speeding
  • Aggressive driving or road rage
  • Losing sight of other vehicles in the truck’s “blind spots”
  • Fatigue and lack of sleep due to meeting unreasonable deadlines
  • Use prescription or over-the-counter drugs that may cause drowsiness
  • Unfamiliarity with the road

 Get the Legal Help That You Deserve

Catastrophic truck injuries affect every member of the family, not just the victim involved in the truck accident. Moreover, the road to recovery for catastrophic injuries can be long and very expensive.

If you suffered catastrophic injuries in an accident involving trucks, you need to hire an attorney who is experienced in handling such types of cases and is familiar with the special rules affecting the trucking industry. Without the right legal help, you may not get the full extent of damages that you and your family members deserve.
