What is a Commercial Truck Accident?

No matter what you call them, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, big rigs, and commercial trucks are the highway's big powerhouses. These monstrosities weigh substantially more than other passenger automobiles. And as a result, even a very "mild" collision can quickly spiral out of control when a big truck is involved.

It doesn't matter how massive a passenger car, truck, or SUV is; no passenger vehicle could survive the weight of a commercial truck in an accident. Any big truck accident with a passenger car will likely be bad, no matter how full the truck is.

A common trucking accident is when a commercial truck driver has become preoccupied, loses control over the vehicle, or slams on the brakes. Any mixture of these elements can result in skidding or coming to a dramatic stop or even flipping over. And unfortunately, these events occur with remarkable regularity on our roads and highways every day.

Other common causes for wrecks with big trucks are as follows:

 - Speeding
 - Driver Fatigue
 - Reckless Driving
 - Distracted Driving
 - Cargo Failure
 - Driving Under the Influence
 - Inadequate Training
 - Inadequate Maintenance

Which Injuries Are the Most Common in Truck Accidents?

A tractor-trailer truck, fully loaded, can easily weigh around 80,000 pounds! On the other hand, most passenger-size SUVs weigh somewhere between 2,000 to 6,000 pounds. Can you see the problem?

Basically, this means that some relatively small crashes with automobiles and other motor vehicles can lead to catastrophic and possibly fatal injuries whenever a big rig truck is involved. So let's talk a bit about common injuries in these wrecks.

Several of the most common injuries sustained in commercial vehicle accidents include the following:

   > Fractures or broken bones
   > Back and spine injuries
   > Whiplash
   > Neck injuries
   > Concussions
   > Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
   > Spinal cord injuries such as spinal stenosis
   > Partial or permanent paralysis
   > Fatalities
   > And many others

You must take care of any injuries or symptoms right away after the truck crash and get treatment from a doctor. Visit the emergency room, your family practice doctor's clinic, or an outpatient treatment clinic as quickly as possible. This will help document your condition immediately after the wreck and make sure that you do not have any internal injuries.

Who Is at Fault in a Big Truck Collision?

In contrast to car accidents, where usually only one driver is to blame, trucking accidents often include numerous accountable parties. Among them might be the following:

Truck Drivers
No matter if a truck driver was drunk, speeding, distracted, or participating in other reckless behavior, professional truck drivers could be found responsible for a crash caused by their carelessness.

Carriers for Big Rigs
In fact, the trucking firm that hired the driver may be held indirectly liable for their actions. Julie Moore and her team can research whether or not the driver was safe to be driving, if they had met the rest/sleep requirements and if their license and certifications are up to date. Trucking companies may also be punished if they hire an incompetent driver or don't remove a dangerous driver from the road.

Cargo Loaders
If a truck's cargo is not packed or bolted down securely, it could roll off and hit pedestrians or cause some other kind of accident. Poorly balanced or excessive freight could force the truck's center of mass to fluctuate, causing the driver to lose control. There is a chance that the company that packed the truck could also be to blame.

Other Vendors
Suppose a trucking company hires a partner to do repairs and maintenance on a truck and an accident happens because that vendor neglected to execute their responsibilities properly. In that case, the vendor might be held partly accountable too.

Trucking companies sometimes work with leased vehicles. And when a court decides that a truck rental business failed to inspect or repair the truck on a routine basis and an accident occurred, the rental company may also be held liable.
