Truck accidents are some of the worst motor vehicle accidents that can occur. Due to the size and nature of trucks, those traveling in passenger vehicles are very likely to be seriously injured and, in many cases, killed. Truck drivers are often under heavy pressure to get things delivered as quickly as possible. Sometimes, trucking companies push drivers to their consecutive driving hour limits, or even beyond, which can lead to unsafe driving conditions. When that happens, it is usually someone else in another vehicle that ends up being seriously injured. If that happens to you, it’s time to call an attorney.
There are thousands of truck accidents every year, and those accidents are responsible for thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of injuries. There is no question that truck accidents are serious, and that many times truck drivers and the companies that employ them are to blame. Truck accidents are bad in and of themselves, but they can also cause other problems because of the freight they are carrying. Trucks often carry hazardous materials, which can spill out and cause severe damage to anyone who is nearby, thus increasing the possibility of those who could seek restitution for injuries.
Truck accidents are different from passenger vehicle accidents in that trucking companies begin investigating and preparing for a defense immediately after the crash. In other words, when passenger vehicles are involved in a crash, the investigation and all of the different procedures that come with it can take a few days or even longer to get started. However, when truck accidents occur, truck drivers notify their dispatchers right away, which immediately initiates the investigation process. Once that process starts, the trucking company and its insurance companies immediately begin preparing a defense strategy in order to protect themselves. That means that, many times, truck companies, their insurance companies and their legal team are ready to proceed at a moments notice to keep the damage at a minimum.
