1. How Truck Accidents Occur?

The trucking business is one of America’s most competitive industries. That competition pushes many carriers to place undue pressure on their workers, resulting in fatigued drivers. Truckers carrying various kinds of cargo, such as coal from mines in the west and containers carried from ports in the east, take on a huge responsibility for carting their loads safely. Their trucks’ massive size and weight can lead to devastating motor vehicle accidents.

In such accidents, trucking companies can be held responsible for placing their drivers on impossible schedules. The companies that maintain trucks may also be liable for allowing hazardous trucks out on the road when they knew dangers existed. Whether a relatively small delivery truck, a commercial truck, an 18-wheeler or any other truck carrying containers hits someone in a much smaller passenger car, the results can be devastating, leading to:

Head injuries
Injuries to the head may affect the central nervous system and other bodily functions. Not always immediately apparent, head injuries include traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and concussions.
Spinal injuries
Catastrophic injuries to the spine affect more than mobility — they can alter your home life, employment and family dynamics and require lifelong, 24-hour care.
Fatalities
Approximately 11 percent of all traffic fatalities involve commercial vehicle crashes. If a loved one was killed in an accident, you may have a wrongful death claim.

2. What Costs Can Your Receive Compensation For?

If you have been in a truck accident, you and your passengers may have been seriously injured and your vehicle may have sustained major damage. You are also likely to have many questions about what to do after a truck accident.

3. Why Should You Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer?

I was in a very severe and traumatizing vehicular accident. I contacted Jim from Cooper and Hurley law offices and they assisted me throughout my entire process. I spoke with Nichole so much, she literally felt like family! Reassuring me that things were being taken care of and informing me of every step that occurred. I am very pleased with their services.
