Richland Truck Accident Lawyer

Your life is now divided into two sections: before and after the truck accident. Before, you had a normal life, a good job, and could pursue activities that you enjoyed.

After the truck accident, your life consists of medical treatments and rehabilitation, and the stress of not knowing when or if you can ever return to work. You also do not know how you will pay your bills and provide for your family.

Truck accidents

A truck accident can happen to anyone. If a cargo company did not load and secure the semi-trucks freight correctly, the truck could jackknife. The contents of the truck spill out onto the roadway, impacting other vehicles.

If a tire blows out on an 18-wheeler, parts and fragments may fly into other vehicles, causing them to collide with each other.

Determining fault

Determining fault in a truck accident is usually more complex than in an accident between two automobiles. Fault may lie with the truck driver if distracted driving, alcohol or drug use, speeding, or lack of training or experience is involved, but multiple entities are often responsible.

For example, in a tire blowout, the manufacturer may have sold a defective product, or the trucking company did not maintain the vehicle properly. If improperly secured cargo caused the accident, the freight company might prove responsible for the accident.

Truck accident injuries

When a large truck strikes a small car, the results are often fatal for occupants of the automobile. Those who survive a collision usually suffer severe injuries causing long-term or permanent impairment or disability.

Common truck accident injuries include:

  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Multiple fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

Truck accident damages

Compensation in truck accidents, known as damages, may include:

  • Medical expenses, current, and future
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
