Truck accidents almost always cause injury, extensive damage

It's easy to believe that a truck accident and car crash are one in the same. However, due to the weight and size differences, there's a good chance that a collision between a truck and smaller vehicle will result in injury, death and extensive property damage.

There are more than 10 million large commercial trucks registered in the United States. When West Virginia drivers head out on the roads, they're certain to encounter all sorts of big rigs criss-crossing the state. In order to remain as safe as possible, it's imperative that drivers understand some of the common causes of truck accidents and what to do to avoid a crash.

Here are some of the many things that often result in truck accidents:

  • Poor maintenance of the truck
  • Improper loading
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Driver errors, such as speeding, distracted driving or driving under the influence of alcohol

At our law firm, we know that truck accidents are serious. We also know that it can be a challenge to determine who was at fault. Fortunately, we have enough experience to pinpoint exactly what went wrong, thus helping our clients understand their rights and decide on how to proceed.

You never want to think about being part of a truck accident, let alone actually finding yourself in this position. If this happens to you, seek immediate medical care before you turn your attention to any other detail. Once you're stable and understand your injuries and long-term prognosis, you can then focus on the cause of the accident and the action you can take.
