Every truck accident is unique due to its conditions, there are some common types of truck accidents. They include:

  • Head-on or frontal collisions – This is the most disastrous kind of accident. The chances of surviving a frontal impact are slim.
  • Rear-end collisions – Driver fatigue or inattention, tailgating, and sudden brakes are a few reasons for these collisions.
  • Side collisions — This collision usually happens when either driver doesn’t yield to those who have the right-of-way leading to hitting another vehicle on the side. 
  • Center Lane accidents — Usually, while turning the trucker portion of the truck, it crosses over the lane, causing an accident.
  • Lane change accidents – There are a few lane-change rules to follow. Not following them can cause risky conditions especially for fast-moving cars.

What are the possible reasons for a truck accident?

There are several reasons for truck accidents from driver’s negligence to road maintenance. A few of the major truck accident reasons are mentioned below.

  • Poor maintenance of vehicles – Taking the truck off the road, buying new parts, maintaining vehicles take time and money. To save time and money, trucks are not maintained regularly, leading to accidents. 
  • Excessive loads – There is a load limit set according to the truck type by the federal agency. However, to transport more goods in less time, this limit is sometimes overlooked, creating accident risk.

Я был пассажиром UBER, и машину сзади сбил грузовой фургон. Я позвонил по номеру 1-800-HURT-511, так как друг уже имел с ними дело, и я был рад, что я это сделал. Мой адвокат был предельно профессиональным и агрессивным при необходимости . Он был прозрачен с самого начала и не усложнял дела без надобности.
