Why Do Car Vs. Truck Accidents Happen?


As the driver of a passenger vehicle, you know that sharing the road with commercial trucks is something you have to do on a regular basis. While this is all part of driving, it can also increase the risk of an accident.

Get this: Even if you're following the rules of the road, a trucker may not be making sound decisions. As a result, you could be involved in a serious accident.

Here are some of the primary reasons why car-truck accidents occur:

- Overloaded trucks

- Unsecured loads

- A trucker who is driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol

- Distracted driving

- Drowsy driving

- Defective roadways

- Equipment failures

As you can see, there is a lot that can go wrong on the road. Unfortunately, it only takes one mistake by a truck driver to cause a serious accident.

If you find yourself involved in this type of crash, your first priority is to receive medical treatment. From there, you should follow the advice of your medical team to give yourself the best chance of making a full recovery.

At our law firm, we know that motor vehicle accidents happen every day of the week. We also know that many of these could have been avoided.

If you were the victim in a car-truck accident, you should also take the time to learn more about your legal rights. You may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party, such as a truck driver or trucking company, in an attempt to receive compensation for your injuries and other damages.
