Seeking A Lawyer After A Truck Accident In Maryland

Box Truck Accident Crash With Car

If you've been involved in a truck accident, our car accident lawyers can help you get justice. But why is it important to find an experienced truck accident lawyer?

There are many characteristics that make truck crashes different from other automotive accidents or collisions. For this reason, seeking out a specialized truck accident attorney can make a significant difference when it comes time to file a legal claim.

How Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help

Victims of truck accidents, whether they occurred on the road or because they work with them on a daily basis, need to understand that their case is completely different to a stand car accident claim.

For example, construction workers are usually working with or surrounded by different types of trucks. It's no surprise that construction work is also one of the most dangerous in the entire country.

Trucking accidents tend to produce very severe injuries and in many cases can even result in death. An experienced truck accident attorney understands this, and also understands that grave injuries are generally not resolved in short periods of time.

These types of injuries tend to require up-front surgical intervention along with months of rehabilitative care. In many instances, ongoing physical therapy is also required if victims hope to return to their old selves. Your legal team should know to take all of these into account when seeking compensation on your behalf. They should also consider any wages you may have lost, and which may also be considered when a settlement is being reached or arguments are made in court.

Types of Truck Accident Injuries

As we mentioned, truck accidents can result in permanent physical injuries; here are a couple of examples:

  • bone fractures
  • head trauma
  • concussions
  • internal bleeding
  • nerve damage
  • pinched nerves
  • dislocated joints
  • sprains

Truck Crash Causes

Truck accidents can be incredibly devastating, both for the driver of the truck as well as the passengers of other vehicles involved. But what leads to these terrible auto accidents? here are only some of the more common causes:

  1. Driver fatigue - Truck drivers are generally compensated for trip completed as opposed to on a per-mile basis. This means that the sooner they complete a haul, the sooner they can collect payment and begin working on the next one. Unfortunately, this aspect can push drivers past the limits of their bodies, ultimately leading to inattentive driving that can end in tragedy.
  2. Mechanical failure - Trucks have become familiar vehicles on the road, but this does not mean that they are not complex machines. Any one of a multitude of components can break or stop working unexpectedly, which can then cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. It is once a truck driver has lost control of their vehicle that it truly becomes a deadly weapon.
  3. Distracted driving - Most drivers on the road today will admit to using their cellphone or other devices at some point in their drive. The same is true for truck drivers, though the consequences of this mistake can prove much deadlier than those faced by regular drivers.

These are only a few examples of truck accident causes; by no means is it an exhaustive list. Likewise, the law does not have an exhaustive list of truck accident causes that allow victims to be compensated. For this reason, we suggest discussing your truck accident with our attorneys.
