Common Causes of Truck and Tractor-Trailer Accidents

The nine most common truck accident causes are:

  1. Distracted Driving
  2. Truck Driver Fatigue
  3. Lane Shifting
  4. Speeding, Load Shift, Cargo Overload
  5. Dangerous or Defective Road Conditions
  6. Collision in Truckers Lane
  7. Improper Truck Maintenance or Vehicle System Failure
  8. Mechanical Failure
  9. Driver Inexperience

The devastation of being involved in a commercial truck accident does not go away immediately after the accident. The damage linked to the accident often requires those injured to have a strong support system long after the crash.

This system of support should include a personal injury attorney who can play a vital role in helping recover damages you may be entitled to under the law.

If you are injured in a Kannapolis-area truck accident and want to pursue an injury claim, there are a few steps you can take to help your case.

The following are important things to do immediately after a truck accident:

  • Call 911.
  • Seek immediate medical attention if needed.
  • Never admit fault.
  • Never give a statement to the insurance company without first consulting with a truck accident lawyer.
  • Take photos of the accident and talk with potential witnesses, making sure to collect their contact information.
  • Talk with the officer handling the accident and make sure you are honest as well as accurate. Remember anything you say can be used against you.
  • Gather all important documents and make a list of any damages. Get all medical bills and other documents related to the wreck. Be sure to document any issues affecting your life that are the result of your accident.

A personal injury lawyer is probably the most important ally you can have in taking on a commercial truck carrier and truck drivers who may deny responsibility for their wrongdoing.

  • $2,000,000 – Truck Accident: Attorney’s Gene Riddle and Jonathan Smith represented the sons of a lady who suffered debilitating injuries as a result of an accident involving an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer.  She later succumbed to her injuries.  Riddle & Brantley hired experts to help establish liability and ultimately negotiated a $2,000,000 settlement with the defense counsel.
  • 750,000 – Truck Accident: Our client was a passenger in a vehicle when it was hit by a tractor-trailer.  The accident totaled the vehicle and our client was seriously injured.  In the end, we had to press the truck’s insurance company by filing suit and pursuing mediation.  The mediation finally concluded, awarding our client $750,000
