Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Federal laws regulating the trucking industry exist to keep everyone on the road safe. There are laws about how many consecutive hours a driver can be on the road, how frequently maintenance must be conducted on trucks, and more. When these rules are not followed, they can lead to dangerous situations.
Truck accidents caused by drivers or trucking companies can be the result of:
- Driver negligence, including driving while intoxicated or texting and driving;
- Insufficient training about how to operate the truck;
- Failure to conduct proper and regular maintenance on the truck;
- Failure to properly secure cargo; or
- Operating a vehicle for too many consecutive hours.
When you work with us, your Waco truck accident lawyer will carefully review your case and even bring in experts to help demonstrate that an accident was caused by the other driver. We strive to present your story — including the hardships you are now facing — in a way that is effective in getting you the compensation you deserve.
How a Truck Accident Claim Works
As your law firm, we will guide you through every step of the claim process. The first step is determining who is at fault and liable for the accident: the truck driver, the trucking company, the trucking company's insurance company, the truck manufacturer, or others. It may be just one of these or all of them.
Next, we will assess the damage done to you. We will look at your past medical bills, your expected future medical bills, property damage, whether the accident affected your ability to work, and other costs you incurred.
Then we will file a personal injury claim against the liable parties seeking compensation for the expenses you incurred. It is our goal to achieve a fair settlement on your behalf. If the insurance company or other liable parties refuse to be fair in their approach, our Waco truck accident attorneys will be ready to fight for you in a trial.
