How Do Truck Drivers Cause Accidents?

There are many ways that negligent and distracted truck drivers contribute to and cause catastrophic Chicago truck accidents that victimize individuals and their families.

Unfortunately, the majority of these collisions are the result of dangerous driving practices or simply due to the negligence of the driver and could have been prevented.

Some of the most common causes of a truck accident include:

Mechanical Failures

  • Brakes
  • Tires
  • Trailer
  • Broken signals
  • Broken lights

Driver Error

  • Fatigue
  • Cellphone use
  • Texting
  • Intoxication
  • Distraction

It’s also important to note that truck drivers, especially those who are on a long haul or who happen to be distracted by smartphones are much more likely to cause an accident.

Truck Accident Injuries Often Cause Chronic Pain

Truck accident victims who are involved in a truck accident can experience anything from mild to severe injuries.

Oftentimes, because of the discrepancy between the trucks size and a car, the injuries and the damage are serious. Whether the trucks involved are trucks with attached trailers or semi-trucks the impact is often just as devastating.

Truck accident victims often suffer from:

  • Fractured bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic head injury
  • Neck strains
  • Deep lacerations
  • Amputated limbs
  • Fatalities

Many of these injuries will require years of medical treatment and chronic pain management, which can also include lost wages and the inability for the injury victim to return to the occupation they held prior to the accident. As such, any settlement should reflect all of the costs of the injuries.
