Common Types of Truck Accidents
Due in part to their large size, commercial trucks can be more challenging to drive than your standard passenger vehicle, which is why all trucks must be properly designed, constructed, maintained, loaded, and driven. If anyone is negligent or careless in any of these things, they could be responsible for causing a serious accident.
Some of the more common types of truck accidents include:
- Head-on collisions
- Rollover accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Drowsy driving
- Brake failure
- Tire blowout
- Under-ride accidents
- Cargo spills
- Jackknife accidents
- Trailer-related accidents
- Accidents involving poorly secured cargo
In some cases, the cause of a truck accident may be obvious, but not always. Sometimes it can be very challenging to determine what caused your crash, which is why it is crucial to seek counsel from an experienced attorney right away. Our Hickory truck accident lawyers can assess your situation, investigate, and determine what caused your crash and who is responsible.
Who Could Be Liable For My Injuries?
Once our team has discovered what caused your crash, that should naturally indicate who is liable for your resulting injuries. If, for example, a truck crashed into your vehicle because it suffered a sudden brake failure, the vehicle manufacturer might be liable for producing faulty brakes. Likewise, if a driver falls asleep at the wheel, causing their truck to slide into your vehicle on the freeway, the truck driver and their employer, the associated trucking company, would likely be liable.
Liable parties may include:
Cargo loading companies
