Although car accidents can result in serious injuries and property damage, collisions involving semi-trucks and tractor trailers are even more devastating. Due to the massive size and weight of these commercial vehicles, many truck accident victims suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries that result in substantial medical treatment, rehabilitation, disability, or even pain which could last a lifetime. However, trucking companies are back by powerful legal teams who will do whatever it takes to deny legitimate personal injury claims to protect their best interests.
If you have been injured in a trucking accident in Alaska, our experienced legal team at Lowe Low Group wants to help you recover the most favorable settlement possible to cover past and future medical expenses, lost wages and earning potential, as well as pain and suffering. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients by providing knowledgeable and personalized legal solutions. If you are concerned about payment, you don’t have to pay us anything unless we succeed in your case.
Who is Liable in a Truck Accident?
When it comes to car accidents, fault can easily be determined since the drivers involved are typically the only possible liable parties. By contrast, there could be multiple parties responsible for a truck accident. Aside from driver negligence, the trucking company could be held liable if the employer forces its truckers to break state and federal driving regulations (i.e. driving over the hours-of-service limits or skipping vehicle inspections) in order to increase profits.
Truck part manufacturers could also be held liable if the cause of the crash was a defective auto part. If the shipping company improperly secured the cargo or went over the legal weight limit, it will be liable for any damages and injuries caused by incorrectly loaded cargo or excessive weight.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver error
- Intoxication from alcohol or drugs
- Driver fatigue
- Lack of driving experience and training
- Traffic violations
- Reckless and negligent driving
- Failure to inspect or maintain the vehicle
- Unsecured cargo or excessive cargo weight
- Faulty truck parts
