What Causes Truck Accidents?

Truck accidents can have a variety of causes. In some cases, multiple parties are responsible for the crash. Our firm conducts thorough investigations into the cause of the accident to determine who can be held liable for your injuries.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Drug-impaired driving
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Unsecured cargo
  • Defective truck parts
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver inexperience
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Improper lane changes
  • Blind spots

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?

In many cases, the truck driver is liable for the accident. However, this is not always the case. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the trucking company that employs the driver may also be held liable. Additionally, in some cases, a trucking company may be held liable for the negligent actions of its driver even if the driver is an independent contractor.

Other parties that are frequently held liable for truck accidents include:

  • Truck owners
  • Truck and truck part manufacturers
  • Truck maintenance companies
  • Third-party maintenance crews
  • Shippers and loaders
  • Government agencies

What Damages Are Available in a Truck Accident Lawsuit?

If you were injured in a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Compensatory damages are available in truck accident lawsuits. These damages are intended to make the injured party “whole” again.

Compensatory damages in a truck accident lawsuit may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Punitive damages

In Michigan, the statute of limitations for truck accident lawsuits is three years from the date of the accident.
