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.

Be wary of driving near tank trucks on the roads

Tanker trucks are important because they help to get liquid cargo where it needs to be. Things like gas and milk couldn't really be transported any other way. Still, tanker trucks are a serious danger to all vehicles around them because of the risk of liquid surge.

Pay attention to blind spots around semitrucks

Truckers on the roads have to take special actions to remain safe on the roads. Other drivers on the roads have to be sure that they are driving safely around semitrucks. There is a chance that a driver on the road can cause an accident between a semitruck and another vehicle.

Semitruck crashes might require reports to a government agency

The records that are associated with a semitruck crash are often important when the victim of the accident chooses to seek compensation for the damages of the crash. One thing that might come into the picture is the record from a report to the Department of Transportation (DOT).

Seek compensation for a big rig crash: Carefully plan your case

The reasons for semitruck crashes vary almost as much as the injuries that these accidents can cause. For the victims of these crashes, having to deal with the effects can be very troublesome. In the least severe cases, the person might walk away with some scratches and bruises but not much else. In the most serious, a person can lose his or her life.
