Injured Truck Driver Lawsuit
It is not just the drivers of cars involved in trucking accidents that are injured; truck drivers can get injured in accidents as well. Some trucks can end up being top-heavy due to improper loading. If a truck is improperly loaded, the load may shift and cause the truck to overturn. These 18-wheeler turnovers are extremely dangerous and can be fatal. If an employer has had your truck improperly loaded and it caused an accident, the company or person who hired you may be liable.
Trucks and trailers that have not been maintained properly may cause accidents as well. A trailers brakes can get stuck or and they may fail to save you from a collision. The use of old or outdated equipment may rob a trucker of much needed modern safety features.
Truck driving accidents can cause a driver to suffer from whiplash, muscle pulls, head injuries, brain injuries, and in some cases, even death.
It is not only truck drivers that are responsible for driving safely on the road; other motorists have the same responsibility. Other motorist may cause an accident by making sudden lane changes, following too closely, or being distracted behind the wheel.
