The potential of a motor vehicle accident is an inherent risk taken by all drivers, passengers and pedestrians. The ensuing injuries can be significant and potentially life-threatening, depending on the circumstances surrounding the collision. The potential for severe injuries and fatalities is increased when commercial trucks are involved. The relative size of these vehicles compared to passenger cars, as well as their potentially dangerous cargo, often make the resulting damages worse than other accidents.
The elements required to establish liability in a truck accident case are the same as those in other accident cases. However, one of the unique aspects of a truck accident is that numerous defendants may be at fault in causing a collision. In addition to the truck driver, the trucking company, contractor or employer may share some liability as well. Drivers are often held to untenable schedules by their employer, which can lead to dangerous situations such as driver fatigue, distracted driving and exceeding hours of service restrictions. Additionally, the cargo that the driver is asked to transport may be toxic, hazardous or exceed weight or size restrictions, all of which may indicate negligence on the part of an entity other than the driver.
Drivers may also be considered negligent if they are speeding, driving while intoxicated, failing to properly secure their cargo or making inappropriate turns or lane changes. Each of these actions creates an unnecessarily hazardous condition for others on the road and can lead to serious injuries. Those injured as a result may sustain significant expenses and other damages. It is therefore important that they receive adequate compensation for their damages and involve all of the necessary defendants.
