Common Causes of Truck Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), crashes with large commercial trucks in the US cause catastrophic injuries to passenger vehicles because of:
- Driving under the Influence - If the truckers involved in an accident, law enforcement will often perform a test at the accident scene to determine if the truck driver consumed alcohol or took illegal drugs.
- Failure to Adjust the Correct On-Ramp Speed - Commercial vehicles have a challenging time when entering the highway. Many accidents at the on-ramp could have been prevented had other drivers adjusted or speed accordingly and allowed the truck to merge. The law requires the motorist to move to the next lane to provide additional space for the truck to enter the freeway.
- Drowsy Driving - Operating a commercial vehicle over long hours can cause drowsy driving, which could lead to catastrophic harm to innocent victims.
- Aggressive Behavior - Aggressive movement, including traveling at excessive speeds or reckless driving, could result in severe injuries of the wrongful death of innocent victims.
- Distracted Driving - There are many distractions inside a commercial vehicle, including quick access to a mobile device, changing the radio station, or looking at a GPS device.
Sometimes, a commercial vehicle driver will cause an accident because of erratic movements, or they were fatigued, having worked too many hours on a tight schedule. In these cases, lawyers can obtain financial compensation for their clients because they proved the trucker, and the trucking company failed to maintain a safe environment for those sharing the roadway, which led to an accident.
Filing a Compensation Lawsuit for Personal Injuries Related to a Truck Accident
All victims suffering injuries from a cargo van, semi-tractor-trailer, or commercial truck can file a lawsuit or claim and seek financial compensation from each party responsible for the accident. Successfully resolving your case requires abiding by Illinois tort laws when filing a claim with the insurance company or presenting a case in front of a judge and jury. The rules involving compensation cases are complex. In nearly every circumstance, the injured victim can file a lawsuit or submit a claim for compensation against every responsible party to ensure they can negotiate their case out of court or litigate evidence in front of a judge.
Trucking accident claims for monetary recovery provide an avenue for victims to obtain financial compensation for their damages involving:
- Hospital costs, medical expenses, and bills associated with rehab and therapy
- Lost income because of missed work: Loss of future earnings due to temporary or permanent disability
- The cost of rental expenses while your truck is being repaired
- The cost of replacement of your total car or truck
- Emotional anguish and mental stress
- Pain and suffering
