The Complexities of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are more complex than car accidents for many reasons. Trucks are governed by federal and state laws and must follow more regulations than passenger cars. Trucks require special driver’s licenses and qualifications, annual inspections, and logbooks. These additional rules and requirements make truck accidents more complicated when determining liability.
Trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. This results in greater property damage and more devastating injuries. A car passenger may suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, or even death. These increased injuries mean longer recovery times and possibly lifelong disability for victims.
The severity of injuries caused by truck accidents leads to very costly medical bills or even the death of a loved one. An experienced Bergen County truck accident attorney can help to calculate current and future financial burdens and pursue sufficient compensation for any loss.
Causes of Truck Accidents
There are several reasons why trucks cause accidents. When a truck is involved in an accident with a car, motorcycle, or pedestrian, the accident is often deadly. Although truck drivers are required to obtain special licenses and operate under federal and state regulations, accidents still occur.
Unfortunately, the reason for truck accidents is often negligence or recklessness on the part of the truck driver or trucking company. These include the following:
- Aggressive driving
- Speeding and ignoring posted truck speed limits
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Failure to inspect equipment
Truck accidents due to negligence can result in serious injuries or even death. On top of a long and painful recovery, there are often expensive medical bills and possible funeral costs. Insurance rarely covers all of the costs resulting from a truck accident.
