Common Causes of Truck Accidents

There are a number of potential causes of truck accidents. Many are the result of negligence or recklessness on the driver’s part. However, in some instances, the trucking company or equipment manufacturer may also be held liable. Some common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue due to the driver skipping mandatory rest stops to meet deadlines
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
  • Defective or malfunctioning equipment
  • Poor maintenance
  • Lack of driver training or experience
  • Reckless behavior, such as using drugs or alcohol
  • Dangerous weather conditions, or a reckless driver who ignores road conditions
  • Excessive speeding to meet unreasonable schedules and deadlines
  • Negligent drivers of other vehicles

The Importance of Acting Fast

It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible following a truck accident. While most truck drivers must maintain logs regarding truck maintenance, rest stops, delivery schedules, and other information, they are only required to keep these logs for a short period of time.

This makes it crucial to contact us immediately so that we can obtain this information before it is destroyed. Additionally, Virginia has a statute of limitations on filing a lawsuit following a truck accident injury. For personal injury claims, the limit is two years from the date of the accident. We will help ensure that your claim is filed within this timeframe.

Choose an Experienced, Skilled Attorney

At Reinhardt Harper Davis, PLC, our truck accident attorneys will gather the necessary evidence to determine which party or parties are at fault. In many truck accident cases, more than one party is at least partially at fault, and therefore liable for your injuries and damages.

The experienced truck accident attorneys at Reinhardt Harper Davis, PLC are here to help you and your loved one during this difficult time.

As each of these parties usually has their own insurance plans through different companies, we can assist you with this process. After we determine who is at fault, we can seek damages to ensure you are compensated for:

  • Your medical bills and expenses relating to your injury, including any future care you may need
  • Any lost wages due to time off work to recover, or loss of income if your injury has rendered you unable to return to work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life

If your loved one was severely injured in a truck accident and his or her mental or physical capabilities have been seriously altered, we will also seek loss of companionship for you and your family. If your loved one suffered a fatal injury, we can seek damages to compensate you for funeral expenses, in addition to any remaining medical bills relating to the injury.
