Commercial semi-trucks and the tractor trailers they pull are massive. In fact, they easily weigh up to 80,000 pounds without a special permit. As a result, anything that comes in contact with a commercial truck and tractor-trailer is at a significant disadvantage. Thus, injuries involving a semi-truck or commercial truck are often quite severe.
Because of the nature of the trucking industry, semi-truck accident injury cases are often extremely complex. One reason, for instance, is that insurance companies often heavily dispute such claims. Furthermore, there may be issues as to who will assume legal liability. Trucking and transportation companies may involve third party drivers, owner-operators, there may be a parent company, and so on. Finally, every entity associated with the truck accident may choose to pass the buck and push liability on other entities.
All things considered, if a truck driver is at fault for your accident, you have the right to seek compensation through civil litigation. When a trucking accident victim dies, the victim's family may seek restitution in a wrongful death civil liability lawsuit.
Common causes of commercial truck accidents can include:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver driving beyond the legally allowable period of time per day
- Texting or Talking on a Cell Phone
- Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
- Defective equipment and improper rigging on the tractor-trailer
- Poor maintenance record of the truck and or tractor trailer
- Lack of driver training and experience
- Driver being under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs
- Driver not maintaining due diligence in dangerous or hazardous weather conditions
- Excessive speed
- Negligent drivers of other vehicles
