Trucking Accident

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that there are more than 50,000 truck-related accidents on US highways every year with over 2,000 of them being fatal.

About Truck Accidents and Injury Law

Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks and tractor trailers, accidents involving these vehicles can be incredibly dangerous. They are also vulnerable to accidents given that they are difficult to control, have large blind spots, and take a long time to stop fully. There are numerous reasons that could cause a trucking accident, and it is a sad truth that many of these kinds of accidents can be avoided.

Among the many causes of accidents involving trucks, some common ones include:

  • Overloaded trucks
  • Fault truck components/improperly maintained trucks
  • Inadequately trained drivers
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Spilled loads
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
  • Breach of regulations

Abraham & Associates, P.C. possesses acute knowledge about trucking regulations and can help you seek compensation if your accident was caused by negligence.

Traumatic Brain Injury in Truck Accidents

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) results from either a sudden jolt or a violent blow to the head or body. A serious TBI can cause bleeding in the brain, permanent brain damage, long-term complications or death. A TBI can have profound physical and psychological effects such as:

  • Sensory problems
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Anxiety, mood swings
  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Agitation or combativeness
  • Coma and other disorders of consciousness

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, 3,921 people were killed in truck accidents, and another 104,000 were injured. While truck accidents represent a relatively small percentage of all traffic-related injuries and deaths, due to the size and weight of semi-trucks, not only do other drivers barely stand a chance, the likelihood of severe spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries are significant.

Who is liable in the event of a crash?

In the event of a truck accident, there are a number of individuals and parties that could be at fault. It is not always the truck drivers fault, and in many situations, the truck manufacturer or inspector could be held liable. Our Massachusetts truck accident attorneys can help you determine who is liable for your accident by reviewing the evidence and questioning those involved.

Our team can determine who is at fault be reviewing or examining:

  • A reconstruction of the accident
  • Log books of travel lengths and durations
  • Inspection reports and dates
  • Electronic data event recorders
  • The 18-wheeler braking system
  • The truck parts that failed or caused the accident

If you are not responsible for your accident, it is important to take legal action against those that are. By obtaining compensation for your injuries and damages, you can regain your financial footing after a serious incident.
