Most Common Types Of Truck Accidents & Their Causes
Truck accidents are all too common in Texas; the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) reported an estimated 5,620 collisions involving a semi in Texas in 2022 alone. Rollovers, rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, jackknifing, t-bone accidents, sideswipe crashes, and wide-turn accidents are some of the most common forms of accidents that involve commercial vehicles, with rollovers consistently happening the most frequently.
There are a variety of reasons why truck accidents happen. Sometimes, other drivers on the road aren’t aware that a truck needs more time to brake or react, and merge lanes or brake too quickly. However, the overwhelming majority of the time, truck accidents happen because truck drivers fall asleep at the wheel (due to driving long distances for long days), or are distracted, or are intoxicated. Sometimes, the trucking company will be at fault for pressuring them to make deadlines and ignore federal guidelines, or for not properly maintaining the vehicle. Sometimes both parties are at fault! Our Arlington truck accident lawyers will take the time to investigate your crash and help you understand who can be held responsible.
Being Injured In A Truck Accident Can Be Expensive
Because trucks are so much larger than other vehicles on the road, any collision with a passenger vehicle or a singular person (walking, on a motorcycle, on a bicycle, etc.) is likely to be catastrophic and result in severe injuries. Depending on how badly you were hurt, you could end up facing astronomical medical costs for items related to:
- Ambulatory transport or air transport to a nearby hospital
- Imaging tests like X-rays, CTs, MRIs, etc.
- Surgery or multiple surgeries (including emergency dental surgery)
- Dental work
- Medications (prescription and over the counter)
- Medical devices (boots, crutches, braces, casts, etc.)
- Physical therapy and or chiropractic care
- And more.
Even if you have great health insurance, this can add up to be tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars that you face paying out of pocket. If your injuries require lifelong treatment and/or leave you permanently disabled, or if you have to take time off work without pay until you fully recover (or if you have to switch careers entirely or become unable to work at all), the total costs of your accident can be staggering.
We Can Help You Recover Fair Monetary Damages For Your Injuries
When the accident was caused by a negligent truck driver or trucking company, you shouldn’t have to bear the full burden of the expenses incurred, and you also deserve to be compensated for the trauma the accident caused. It is likely that you had to endure a lot of pain and suffering, miss out on activities you otherwise would have enjoyed participating in, and lose sleep, among other things – while those may not be as easily quantifiable as medical bills are, you still should be paid fairly for them.
The truck driver’s insurance company or the trucking company (or their insurance company) should cover all of those costs. However, insurance companies are notorious for refusing to pay out full claims to injured accident victims. They will typically attempt to either avoid paying altogether or will make a much lower offer than what your injuries are actually worth – that’s where our Arlington truck accident lawyers can come in. We can review your case, and help you understand how much your injuries should be valued at, and what your options are. We can help you file a claim or communicate and negotiate with the insurance company to win the best settlement possible. We will even go so far as to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes to recover successful damages!
