Causes of Truck Accidents
In the United States, commercial truck driving – largely for transporting products and cargo – has become a trillion-dollar industry which now accounts for over 10% of our country’s gross domestic product (GDP). Unfortunately, accidents involving these large trucks do happen, and if you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Truck accidents are commonly categorized as “head-on,” “intersection,” “left-turn,” and “rear-end” accidents, and a study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) found some surprising statistics: in a study of over 120,000 accidents involving large trucks which resulted in a serious injury or death, a whopping 87% of those accidents were caused by driver-negligence; this can be further broken down into distraction, speeding, driver-fatigue, intoxication, and other forms of negligence. About 10% of the accidents resulted from maintenance problems and/or vehicle defects, such as worn-out tires or faulty braking systems, and the remaining 3% resulted from poor weather conditions and other environmental factors.
These accidents can be devastating and result in serious injuries and even death, and common injuries include bone fractures, back/neck injuries, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and even paralysis. We at Agruss Law Firm are proud to serve our fellow citizens in personal injury cases, especially when you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a large truck, and we are fully committed to protecting your rights and ensuring that the other party is held legally accountable when negligence occurs.
