What Causes Truck Accidents?
It is a terrifying thought, having to face an 18-wheeler on the highway, but the fact remains that truck accidents do happen. As you can imagine, they more often than not do not end well for the occupant of the other vehicle. While the truck driver may walk away unharmed, the driver or passengers of the other vehicle may sustain catastrophic or fatal injuries. Whether you were rear-ended by a pick-up truck or hit an 18-wheeler head-on, you may have suffered considerable trauma. Determining the cause of your accident will help us determine who is at fault.
Some possible causes of truck accidents include:
- Equipment failure
- Inexperienced truck operator
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Overloaded trucks
- Imbalanced truck loads
- Hazardous roads
It is essential to get on top of your legal options if you are ever involved in an accident with a commercial truck. As a Waco truck accident attorney, James Rainey knows just what to do when dealing with your case. Trucking accident cases can get tricky due to the state and federal laws that regulate commercial trucking. It’s different than, say, filing an injury lawsuit over a “regular” traffic accident because truckers are obligated to follow different rules.
Did you know, for example, that federal regulations allow for a trucking log to be destroyed after six months? This is important to know when filing a lawsuit. Your attorney needs to act quickly in order to access important information regarding the truck and trucker. Otherwise, that information is in danger of being lost for good. A good truck accident attorney will know this and will act accordingly.
There are many other regulations and procedures that come with lawsuits involving truck accidents. Here at Rainey & Rainey, we will fight tirelessly to get you your just compensation for any injuries you may have sustained.
