When there is a commercial truck accident, chances are that multiple people will be injured or killed. Due to their enormous size, tractor-trailers can hit multiple cars, block several lanes and cause subsequent car accidents. If you have been injured in a truck accident, I, Ken Nunn, and my team of trucking accident lawyers, will fight for the money settlement that you and your family deserve.
What causes collisions between cars and trucks? Many truck accidents here in Indiana occur due to negligence on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company.
According to a federal study, key factors that lead to trucking accidents include:
- Brake problems
- Traffic congestion
- Prescription and over-the-counter drug use
- Cell phone use
- Unfamiliarity with local roads
- Driver fatigue
- Negligent hiring of the driver
- Negligent maintenance of the truck
- Driver is poorly trained
- Violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
- Numerous other acts of negligence.
Brain injury, broken or fractured bones, severe burns, spinal injury, permanent disabilities, and even death are not uncommon at the scene of a truck accident. When you have been injured in an accident like this, you’ll be forced to deal with physical and financial hardships while you recover from your injuries or losses. You’ll face pain and suffering from your injuries, and large medical bills or lost time from work can cause additional stress and anxiety. If you have lost a loved one, you will have to deal with funeral expenses, loss of earnings, and matters of your loved one’s estate. In addition to those pressures, you will have to deal with insurance companies, truck company representatives, and the extensive paperwork of a complex legal matter.
98 % of the fatalities in truck accidents were people in passenger cars.
