Causes of Truck Accidents

Stuart Truck Accident Attorney

Unfortunately, there are many causes to tragic truck accidents. In a recent year, there were nearly 5,000 trucks involved in fatal accidents. Trucks are far more likely to be involved in fatal accidents than cars due to their massive weight and size. Unfortunately, in order to comply with the needs of faster shipping, many truck drivers are pressured to make deliveries on time. In many cases the trucking industry can encourage trucking violations by offering bonuses to those that arrive on time or early.

This can cause a host of situations that predispose truck drivers to causing accidents such as:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Driver fatigue from driving over the limit of hours
  • Drug abuse to stay awake
  • Skipping maintenance appointments in order to keep driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Inattentive driving

Truck accident injuries, when they are not fatal, are usually extremely serious. Cars were not designed to take the impact from a truck, which weighs over 100,000 pounds. The injuries sustained can include:

  • Spinal injury
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Involuntary amputation
  • Broken bones

These injuries are costly and you need the help of a skilled Stuart truck accident attorney on your side to ensure you have the best chance of receiving the compensation you are due.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Martin County

When trucking companies become negligent, and no longer comply with their own safety standards or fail to ensure that their drivers are following regulations, the result can be a tragic truck accident with catastrophic injuries. Severe injuries such as brain and spinal injuries are the most difficult and costly to treat. Many times you must seek treatment for the rest of your life. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help you establish the liability of the trucking company or truck driver so that you can receive the compensation you are due.
