Truck accidents are serious and traumatic. An overworked driver may fall asleep at the wheel. A distracted trucker might hit the brake just a few seconds too late. A hurried mechanic might take a shortcut when repairing an unstable trailer.
But, no matter the reason, truck accidents cause serious injury and property damage due to the massive size of large trucks. A simple fender bender between vehicles could easily escalate into a life-threatening situation when large rigs are involved.
If you or a loved one become involved in a truck accident, do not hesitate to seek help from the Jaklitsch Law Group that represents victims involved in Trucking Accidents in Upper Marlboro.
Proving The Case
Many accident cases are tough and toilsome to prove. This is why hiring an attorney is often the best choice because it assures the affected individual will be given the attention needed during a strenuous time. Also, the attorney will defend what is in the best interests of the client. The injured individual can then spend time healing.
Trucking Accidents Versus Car Accidents
Trucking accidents are typically more complex than car crashes. These cases involve the trucker, the trucker’s employer, and the trucking company’s lawyers as well as local, state, and federal traffic laws. One of the biggest issues in commercial truck and 18-wheeler accidents is proving liability.
Trucking accidents typically cause severe injuries, but victims face unique challenges when pursuing compensation from powerful commercial carriers that typically employ a team of legal experts to fight these claims.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
Many common causes of truck accidents involve various types of truck driver negligence, from speeding to following too closely to failing to signal while changing lanes. Other acts of driver negligence include driving under the influence, cell phone use, improper lane changes, and unsafe highway exit and entry.
Besides defending clients against trucking accidents, there are some other services available, including but not limited to auto accidents, back and neck injuries, medical malpractice, metro/train crash, wrongful death, and motorcycle accidents.
