At Van Law Firm, we know truck crashes often lead to physical and psychological injury. Not only are the injuries challenging to deal with, but the stress of increasing medical bills, damages to your wages, both past and future, and disruptions to your daily life can pile up and make it seem as though it is impossible to sort out. 

With an experienced law firm such as ours, these issues can be handled professionally, neatly, and in a timely manner so that you get the compensation you deserve. Our staff of trusted truck accident lawyers is always accepting new cases — with millions of dollars won for our clients so far, our reputation of legal excellence and tireless service speaks for itself.

You Deserve Compensation for Your Truck Accident

When a truck collides with another vehicle on the road, serious damage can occur. Not to mention, the injuries accident victims suffer tend to be more severe than those sustained in other types of road collisions. The damage in a truck accident involving a cyclist or pedestrian is even worse.

You and your family shouldn’t have to pay for the physical, emotional, and financial toll of a truck accident. Van Law Firm can help you recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income and benefits
  • Reduced earning potential and career growth
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Disability, scarring, or disfigurement
  • Wrongful death of a loved one

Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our injury attorneys a call today at 725-900-9000.

You can focus on healing while we gather evidence, build a case, and fight to protect your rights.

Causes of Trucking Accidents

When it comes to accidents involving commercial trucks, there can be a wide range of potential causes. Truck drivers must obey traffic laws just as other motorists do, but the trucking industry also has strict regulations that drivers must follow at both the state and federal levels with regard to service time and vehicle maintenance. 

Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI)
  • Fatigue or drowsy driving
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Defective vehicle components, such as tires, brakes, brake lights, etc. 
  • Distracted driving, such as texting, eating, smoking, etc. 
  • Tailgating behind another vehicle
  • Failing to check mirrors for blind spots (or not having proper mirrors installed)
  • Unsafe driving in inclement weather situations 
  • Speeding 
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Cargo that is overloaded or improperly secured
  • Driving without proper license or training

Not only can truck accidents occur between a truck and a smaller vehicle, like a car, pickup, or motorcycle. But truck accidents can also occur between a truck and a bicycle or a pedestrian. If you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident as a motorist, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian, our truck accident attorney can help.

Steps to Take Following an Accident

Trucking accidents can feel much more severe than a standard auto crash, but there are still important steps that individuals should follow after an incident. 

  • Contact police: In the event of a trucking accident, police will most likely respond to the scene, but you should always contact them just to be sure. They will create an accident report that can be used as valuable evidence, and if the other party was under the influence, they can establish that on the scene. 
  • Seek medical attention: You should always seek medical attention for any injuries sustained in a crash, however small they may seem. By working with a medical professional, you establish a framework for your claim that insurance companies may use to gauge its potential value. 
  • Take pictures: Be sure to take ample photographs at the scene, including the scene of the accident and all vehicles involved. For a more in-depth photo checklist, visit here
  • Take notes: In addition to pictures, also remember to jot down any notes about the accident while they are fresh in your mind. 
  • Collect information: In a trucking accident, you should get the name, contact, and insurance info from the driver, as well as the name, contact, and insurance info from the trucking company. 

Do not, under any circumstances, negotiate or otherwise interact with any representatives from trucking companies, whether they be attorneys or insurance adjusters. Retain the services of a trusted trucking accident lawyer before speaking to anyone.
