Mooresville, NC Truck Accident Attorney

Although no motor vehicle accident is pleasant, truck accidents can be particularly horrific. Trucks are usually moving fast, barreling down the road with the force of up to 80,000 pounds of metal. They are no match for the passenger cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans that sometimes find themselves in the path of these giant vehicles. So when truck accidents occur, the fallout can be brutal. Some injured parties end up with lifelong injuries that require years of physical therapy and multiple surgeries. Others die from their injuries, leaving behind families who are forced to patch their lives back together and move on without them. If you or someone you love has been injured during the course of a tractor-trailer wreck, reach out to a truck accident lawyer for help right away.

Truck Accident Claims – Liability

A seasoned attorney can help you determine who to hold accountable for your injuries. Although it seems cut and dry—the driver of the truck acted negligently, at least in most truck accident claims—it can also be the case that the employer who owns the truck or hired the driver is also responsible for your injuries. Identifying who to hold responsible is a big part of filing a successful truck accident claim. As another example, if there was a manufacturing defect that caused the truck’s braking system to malfunction, and that malfunction resulted in the collision that caused your injuries, then you may have grounds to sue the manufacturer of the braking system and others. Likewise, if the shipper overloaded the truck and that played a role in the wreck, there may be a liability on the part of the broker or shipper. The transport of goods and cargo in a tractor-trailer involves many different parties, and a thorough evaluation is required to determine where any fault may lie as to these parties.

Common Truck Accident Causes

There are dozens of reasons that truck accidents occur, although some are more common than others. Contributing circumstances to most truck accidents include:

  • Disregarding yield, stop, or other traffic signs and road markings.
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit or excessive speed for prevailing road conditions.
  • Improper turning.
  • Going the wrong way or crossing the centerline.
  • Oversteering and overcorrecting.
  • Improper passing.
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way.
  • Inattention to road conditions.
  • Following too closely.
  • Operating with defective equipment.
  • Driving while drunk or on drugs.
  • Driving while distracted.
  • Driving while sleepy, tired, or fatigued.
  • Mechanical malfunctioning or manufacturing defect.

No matter which factors solely or in combination result in a truck wreck, the results are never pretty. People are seriously injured and many die as a result of sustained truck accident injuries every day, both on North Carolina’s highways and bi-ways and across the country in every state.
