Common questions victims have after a truck accident

Any motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injuries. But if an 80,000-pound commercial truck is involved in this accident, the severity of any collision is multiplied considerably. 

If you or a loved one have been involved in this type of accident, chances are that you are scared, hurt and overwhelmed by the situation you are now facing. Victims and their families are often dealing with some life-threatening illnesses and have a number of questions that they want answered. In this post, we will look at some of the common questions truck accident victims and their families have and shed some light on some potential answers.

Truck accidents, like any motor vehicle accident, can be caused by any number of reasons. There are instances when a passenger vehicle contributes to a crash, but there are also cases where the truck or the trucker is responsible for the crash. This could involve a reckless trucker, negligent trucking company, faulty truck parts, inadequate maintenance or violations of trucking regulations.

Who is at fault?

In cases when an accident is not caused by a passenger vehicle, the trucker, trucking company, parts manufacturers or shipper of hazardous cargo could each be to blame.

How long will it take to recover?

Injuries stemming from a truck accident are often catastrophic. Those who survive can have a lifetime of recovery ahead of them, while others will require intensive rehabilitation and surgical procedures as part of their recovery. In any case, the recovery from a truck accident can be lengthy and expensive.

Can I pursue compensation?

Victims of a truck accident and their families have the right to speak with an attorney to determine whether they have grounds to pursue compensation from a reckless or negligent party. As we mentioned above, there can be a number of parties named in a lawsuit when a commercial truck is involved, and an attorney can help those affected by a truck accident identify these parties and file a legal claim if appropriate.
