Fighting For Victims After Serious And Fatal Truck Accidents
As a motorist in Little Rock, you have witnessed the heavy traffic of Interstate 30, I-40, I-430, I-440, I-630 and I-530 and other highways across the region. While on these roads, you have certainly been in the company of semi trucks hauling goods or heading to perform services. These trucks can be intimidating on the road because most people realize that accidents with 18-wheelers can be incredibly devastating.
Experience You Can Count On
At McDaniel, Richardson & Calhoun, our lawyers understand the causes of truck accidents and know how to deal with the aftermath. Driving a commercial truck is much different from driving a car. As a result, truck accidents can happen for a variety of reasons.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Improper load balancing
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Reckless driving or speeding
- Inexperienced and improperly trained drivers
- Failure to check blind spots
- Lane drifting
- Failure to signal lane changes
- Failure to accommodate wide turn radius
- Failure to account for increased stopping distance
Due to the sheer size and weight of trucks, accidents involving these massive vehicles often result in severe or catastrophic injuries. Victims may suffer traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, severed limbs and organ damage. These catastrophic injuries often require extended, complex treatment. Recovery may take years, and victims’ lives can be drastically altered as a result. Not all accident victims are lucky to survive. In more violent collisions, passengers in smaller vehicles often suffer fatal injuries.
Victims of truck crashes who do survive, however, may find themselves out of work and their finances draining as medical bills pile up. Trucking companies and their insurers should help cover these costs. A knowledgeable attorney can help ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.
