Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

When you understand how truck accidents can happen, it makes it easier to understand why many cases involve multiple defendants and can become complicated, especially when serious injuries or deaths are involved. Many 18-wheeler accidents are caused by the following:

  • Vehicle issues: 18-wheelers have to undergo frequent and thorough maintenance. Mechanics should check, for starters, brakes, filters, suspension, batteries and oil. If a truck lacks proper maintenance, it could lead to a collision.
  • Driver inexperience: With the trucking industry suffering from a shortage of workers, new drivers are being rushed into driving positions without proper experience or training. Without the necessary experience and training, many of these new truckers do not know how to safely operate these large vehicles without causing harm to themselves and others.
  • Driver’s health: Driving an 18-wheeler takes a lot out of employees. Many truckers experience physical and psychological illnesses during their employment. A trucker’s health may decline because of short deadlines imposed by trucking companies. These medical conditions can compromise an employee’s ability to drive safely and avoid accidents.
  • Weather: A trucker’s performance on the road can be heavily impacted by weather conditions. Heavy rain or snow can obscure a driver’s view and make it harder for them to slow their vehicle to a stop, for example.

By understanding what caused a truck accident, attorney Ryan Nguyen can pinpoint who is liable for his client’s injuries and losses.

What Can Be Recovered After A Truck Accident?

Every case is different, and there are a lot of complex issues that have to be considered. In general, you can recover money for your:

  • Medical expenses, including hospital care, rehab therapy and medications
  • Property losses, including the damage to your vehicle and personal items
  • Lost wages, both for the time you’ve been off work and for future lost work
  • Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and permanent scars or limitations

Attorney Ryan Nguyen works hard to hold those responsible for his client’s injuries accountable for their actions, whether through a negotiated settlement or at trial.
