Truck accidents are extremely dangerous because of the sheer size of commercial
trucks. Semi-trucks, tractor trailers and flatbed trucks can all cause
serious injury if they are involved in a collision with a passenger vehicle.
Truck accidents may not always be the fault of the truck driver. Many
things can go wrong with a vehicle of that size, so a mechanical failure
that caused an accident may involve a
personal injury claim against a part manufacturer. Truck drivers are also frequently subject
to fatigue because of long working hours and intense deadlines. In this
case, the trucking company may also be liable for the injuries caused by
tired truck drivers.
When trucks get in accidents they can cause a number of types of damage.
Trucks commonly are involved in rollover accidents. These are usually
caused by trucks stopping or turning too abruptly. Cars may be crushed
under the truck or if the truck was carrying hazardous material the surrounding
area may become contaminated or it may even catch on fire. The possibilities
are endless when it comes to the types of accidents and injuries that
can result from commercial trucks. If you were involved in an accident
