Personal Injury Representation You Can Trust
Hundreds of thousands of truck accidents occur in the U.S. each year, resulting in many fatalities and serious injuries. Because trucks are so much larger than average-sized vehicles, the damage that results from a truck accident is often devastating. 18-wheelers can virtually destroy cars, motorcycles, and other smaller vehicles. No one should suffer from an auto accident as a result of another person’s negligence. Given just how great the potential for serious or long-term injury is following a truck accident, it is imperative that you hire a skilled lawyer if you or someone you know has recently been injured in a collision with a truck. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, our Plano personal injury attorneys have made it our mission to fight for individuals who’ve been seriously injured in a trucking accident. Backed by decades of experience, we are ready to litigate for maximum compensation on your behalf.
What You Need to Know About Truck Accidents
When arguing for compensation in a truck accident case, it is key to determine the cause of the accident. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Road conditions
- Lack of driver training
- Lack of maintenance
- Faulty parts
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
Fault in a trucking accident may lie with various parties, so establishing who was responsible in addition to the conditions that led up to the accident is crucial. Parties that may be held accountable in a truck accident include:
- The truck driver: This would apply in cases where driver error is evident, and factors like drunk and distracted driving are established.
- The truck company: In cases where a truck driver is working for a larger company, that company may be at fault if you can prove they failed to train the driver properly or outfit their truck with proper maintenance and upkeep.
- The truck manufacturer: In cases where a truck accident resulted from faulty or defective vehicle parts, it may be possible to hold the manufacturer of the truck accountable, if you can prove that they failed to ensure their product was up to the latest safety standards.
