You have the responsibility to use the road with other motorists, including truck drivers. Unfortunately, you can find yourself involved in accidents with trucks. If you are a truck accident victim, hiring experienced lawyers to help you with the case is recommended. At The Rezvani Law Firm, The Accident Duo offer injured victims legal counsel and representation following a truck accident. Before you book an appointment, here’s all you need to know about truck accidents and how we can be of help.
Every 15 minutes, a person is seriously injured or killed in a truck accident. About 500,000 truck accidents take place every year in the United States, leading to the death of more than 5,000 people per year. Trucks are at a higher risk of getting into fatal crashes than passenger vehicles. According to the Insurance Institute for Highways Safety, about 98% of fatalities in accidents involving trucks and passenger vehicles occur to individuals in the passenger cars.
Accidents involving trucks are attributed to various causes. Some causes include driver fatigue, careless driving, improper loading that makes trucks unstable, poor truck maintenance and truck defects. Common truck defects that result in accidents include defective brakes, transmission issues, defective steering wheel and defective wheels and tires.
A truck accident case is more complex than conventional car accidents. Unlike car drivers, truck drivers and trucking businesses are regulated by special state and federal trucking laws. In addition, there are many potential parties legally involved in a truck accident apart from the responsible driver. Working with The Accident Duo can help you navigate these complexities and receive compensation for your injuries.
