Truck Accidents Archives

Know what terms come with a settlement offer

The severity of the injuries that occur in a semitruck crash can devastate every area of a person's life. One thing that these victims can do is to seek compensation to try to get the trucker, trucking company, insurance company or another liable party to cover the costs associated with the crash. This isn't always easy, but it is one of the few ways that they can find relief.

Big rig crashes at highway speeds are serious matters

When you are on the interstate, you hope that other drivers are going to drive safely. Sometimes, you might see someone doing something that is dangerous. One thing that people tend to do on the interstates is speed. The open road without obstacles seems to just encourage people to drive faster.

Proper loading is imperative for all semi-truck cargo

Semi-truck trailers must be loaded properly, or the cargo can pose a safety hazard to the trucker and others on the road. Because of the possibility of shifting when the truck is moving, these loads have to be balanced and secured in a way that prevents them from being able to throw the truck off course.

Causes of semi-truck crashes can be difficult to determine

Looking into the possible causes of a semi-truck crash makes it evident that these cases aren't always clear cut. There are many different ways that these accidents can occur. Determining the exact cause can be a challenge, but this is one thing that is necessary when you decide to seek compensation for the crash.

Know what you must do after a semitruck crash

Motor vehicle accidents are difficult situations for the victims who weren't expected to be crashed into. When one of these vehicles is a semitruck, there is a good chance that serious injuries will occur. The next steps are crucial so make sure that you are carefully considering what you are going to do.

Catastrophic injuries after a semitruck crash

We recently discussed distracted driving and how it can be deadly when the person who isn't paying attention is driving a semitruck. These accidents can lead to horrible consequences for the victims. When the injuries are catastrophic, the person is likely never going to be the same again.

Distracted driving shouldn't derail safety for truckers

People who are on the roads on a daily basis shouldn't have to worry about commercial truckers driving while they are distracted, but this happens quite often. It is estimated that overall, around 87 percent of vehicle crashes have distracted driving as at least one contributing factor.

Your safety doesn't only depend on your actions

No matter where you drive, you are likely going to come across semitrucks along the way. Driving safely around these vehicles is imperative so that you can make it home safely. The ability to remain safe isn't always up to you. This also depends on the actions of other drivers, including the trucker.
