Get The Help You Need With A Tyler Truck Accident Lawyer

Experiencing an accident with a similar sized vehicle is stressful enough, but when you are in an accident with a semi truck, the damages, injuries, and entire recovery process is significantly more difficult. When in an accident with a truck, there are more parties that can be held responsible other than the driver and insurance company. Depending on the cause of the accident. the manufacturer of the truck, the manufacturer of the freight/cargo, the driver’s employer, or even the loading company can all be held responsible.

Trucking insurance companies understand and exploit this as a difficult process to navigate. They know the complexities and are hoping you do not hire representation to get fair compensation. These insurance and trucking companies take advantage of the fact that you do not have a truck accident lawyer to represent you during this vulnerable time. Trucking companies, their drivers, & their insurance carries know that you have medical bills, loss of wages, and no vehicle. They are hoping you will be eager enough to accept a settlement that they deem as fair, only for you to discover, too late, that the compensation doesn’t cover everything you need in order to recover from this traumatic and life changing truck accident.

Having an experienced Tyler truck accident lawyer means you have someone in your corner, navigating the complexities, and fighting for your recovery. If you have sustained injuries and/or property damage due to a truck accident, it’s crucial that you contact an experienced Tyler truck accident lawyer to get the fair compensation that you need to fully recover. Don’t try to negotiate this alone. Begin your recovery process now. Call the Cain Firm and get the compensation you deserve.

Most Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

  • Driver Fatigue

Truck drivers are subject to working hours just like the rest of us. The federal government has laws limiting the number of hours a truck driver may drive depending on the amount of sleep obtained and the amount of breaks taken. Truck drivers may not drive beyond 14 consecutive hours after coming on duty and only following a 10 hour consecutive off duty period. Drivers are also required to take 30-minute breaks at least every 8 hours.* 

Truck drivers are most often paid by the mile and are dictated by tight delivery deadlines. Combine this with their deliveries being hindered by road construction, production delays, and loading issues, truck drivers are often pushing the limits when it comes to making deadlines to ensure full pay is received. Lack of sleep causes poor motor skills and slowed reaction time. 

  • Overweight Loads

Heavy, unsecured or loose cargo, improperly loaded, and overweight payloads are all too common when it comes to semi trucks. If a truck load is very heavy, the driver must be cautious when maneuvering on a fast-traveling interstate and even turning corners. Sometimes, truck drivers are either too inexperienced or reckless when it comes to their heavy load and cause tipping accidents as a result. 

Improperly loaded, unsecured, or loose cargo on semi trucks are more common than the average driver is aware. If a loading company doesn’t take care to properly distribute the load on the trailer, the unbalanced cargo can fall off or cause the trailer to tip over, resulting in an accident with surrounding vehicles.

Every means of transportation has a weight limit to ensure the safety of the load, the trailer, and other drivers on the road. If a load is too heavy, it compromises the balance and overall structure of the trailer and truck. 

  • Speeding

No matter the vehicle type, speeding is never a safe choice. When a truck driver chooses to speed, they increase the weight on impact when an accident occurs. Oftentimes truck drivers speed to meet their deadlines and increase the amount of miles traveled in order to make more money. 

When a large truck that weighs 80,000 pounds, 40 tons, attempts to move lanes, turn corners, or brake suddenly, the immensely heavy load does not allow for quick maneuvering. This results in traumatic, and even sometimes, catastrophic accidents.

  • Poor Maintenance

Just like any other vehicle, semi-trucks need to be maintained in order to run efficiently and safely. When a truck does not get proper brakes installed, new fluids, or have a certified professional maintain the mechanics, the results will be detrimental to those involved in the accident. 

  • Reckless Driving

As with most drivers, distracted driving results in reckless behavior. Most common these days are drivers who are on their phones. However, any type of distraction is dangerous. Most truck drivers spend 11 hours per day on the road, resulting in their meals, snacks, and drinks being consumed all while driving. Any distraction while driving can result in a terrible truck accident.

In addition to being distracted, truck drivers are often in a hurry to get to their final destination in order to pick up another load and get back on the road. When driving in a hurry, truck drivers often neglect to check their blind spots. As a result, truck accidents occur when a truck driver moves into a different lane or tries to turn.
