What Are Your Rights If Hurt In A Truck Accident?
Collisions with large trucks and semitrailers can result in serious accidents and injuries for individuals in smaller vehicles. Due to the larger size and heavier weight of these vehicles, even low-speed collisions with trucks can lead to catastrophic damage and grave injuries. If you are a victim of this type of accident, you do not have to walk through the aftermath alone.

Common Reasons For Truck Accidents
These types of accidents happen for many reasons. Often, they are the result of poor decisions on part of the trucking company, the truck owner or the truck driver. Some of the most common reasons for collisions involving large and heavy commercial vehicles include the following:
- Speeding to deliver load faster
- Driving after too many hours on the road
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Inattentive or distracted truckers
- Faulty maintenance, affecting tire or brake safety
Truck drivers may feel pressure to deliver loads faster, which results in drivers who are too tired and in too much of a hurry to be safe. Unfortunately, innocent motorists may pay the price in the event of an accident. Victims have the right to explore their legal options, which may include seeking recompense through a personal injury claim.
