Each year, tens of thousands of victims suffer injuries as a result of truck accidents across the United States. Quite often, there are many instances where people are hurt as a result of negligence. We see countless truck accidents take place as a result of speeding drivers. Distractions, impairment, and fatigue are other common causes of these accidents.
Unlike other types of vehicle collisions, truck accidents tend to be more complex due to the fact that there are several parties who can share liability. In addition to seeing a significant number of truck accidents take place as a direct result of negligent drivers, we also see many accidents take place as a result of careless cargo loading companies, inadequate training and hiring on behalf of trucking companies, and even failing to maintain vehicles on behalf of maintenance companies.
When innocent people are hurt in truck accidents as a result of negligence, they often have legal options that can help them secure financial compensation. Filing a personal injury claim against all of the responsible parties can help you get the money that you need to cover your medical costs and a variety of other losses and expenses you face.
