Maryland Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents are among the most catastrophic vehicles collisions that can occur; this is because commercial trucks can weigh about 20 times or more while fully loaded compared to what passenger cars weigh. This implies that passenger vehicles and their occupants have a significantly higher chance of being seriously injured or killed when truck drivers are negligent and crashes result.

Negligence and Truck Accidents: The Main Causes

Similar to regular vehicle accidents, we find that truck accidents occur most often as a result of human error as compared to some outside reason such as mechanical failure. These errors arise commonly because of the driver’s negligent failure to take specific actions to avoid creating a dangerous situation wherein an accident cannot be avoided.

Note that according to Government truck driver statistics, truck drivers more often than not are found to be at least partially responsible for causing a significant number of road accidents. There are various reasons why a trucker may be involved in an accident. They include:

·Truck driver fatigue, this is a factor that is responsible for about 13% of all the truck accidents

·Truck driver intoxication, which prevents the trucker’s ability to maneuver a truck safely as well as his or her response to the changing driving conditions

·Truck driver distraction, which impairs the trucker ability to see and respond appropriately to the driving conditions in a particular circumstance

·Non-compliance of truckers with Federal or state truck rules and regulations, which can lead to truck malfunctions as well as other problems and risks

Who’s Liable For Truck Accidents

The details of the collision are pivotal after a truck accident when identifying the liable party. In general, however, those who are held liable for truck accidents most often include:

  • Truck drivers when their negligence leads to truck collisions
  • Other motorists on the road when their distraction, impairment or failure to abide by traffic regulations contributes to truck accidents
  • Trucking companies when they fail to hire or retain qualified truckers, maintain their trucking equipment and/or ensure they comply with trucking laws that lead to truck accidents
  • Other third parties, such the manufacturers of trucking equipment can be held liable when they sell defective equipment that plays a role in causing truck collisions or municipalities when they fail to maintain good road conditions that contribute to accidents
