Liability In Truck Accidents
Truck drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles with a high degree of caution. One of the major issues with commercial trucks is that they have very large blind spots. They are big enough to make an SUV disappear and if a truck driver is not careful they could easily cause an accident if they make a dangerous turn. As it turns out, fatigue is one of the leading causes of serious truck accidents.
Trucks are equipped with event date recorders (EDRs). These devices are similar to the “black boxes” that are found in airplanes. These can be used to help determine liability following a crash. Any person that is injured may be able to recover damages through a bodily injury claim. Injuries in a truck accident may include:
- Head injuries
- Internal Injuries
- Seat-belt injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bone fractures
A truck accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are. It doesn’t cost anything to hire an attorney and they only get paid if they are able to win or settle your case.
