Causes and Injuries in Truck Accidents

There are numerous circumstances which can lead to a trucking accident, however, some of the common causes we are aware of include distracted, drunk, drugged, and fatigued drivers. Poor road conditions, weather conditions, and improperly loaded trucks or cargo can also lead to serious collisions. The most common types of truck accidents are jackknife accidents, rollover accidents, and under ride accidents.

Consequences of trucking accidents may include:

• Back injuries
• Neck injuries
• Brain injuries
• Head injuries
• Spinal cord injuries
• Amputations
• Wrongful death

Holding the Responsible Party Accountable

Regardless of the cause of the accident, we believe that the driver who behaved negligently should be held accountable for their actions. A trucking company must be extra careful about which drivers they hire, especially considering the grave consequences of a truck driver’s negligence. When trucking companies fail to properly screen their employees, they can be held liable alongside their drivers using the legal theories of negligent hiring, supervision, vicarious liability, and other legal theories.
