Types of truck accidents
Truck accidents happen for many different reasons in Marietta. On busy highways like Interstate 75 or the South Marietta Parkway, some of the most common causes of truck accidents can be traced back to speeding truck drivers.
But no matter what road you're on in Marietta, distracted truck drivers have increasingly become a problem. Even though it's against the law for truck drivers to text while driving, many of them still do so. Other times, truck drivers cause accidents because they're trying to use a GPS or another electronic device.
And while there are strict federal laws limiting the number of hours truck drivers can drive in a 24-hour period, some drivers ignore these rules and fall asleep at the wheel, resulting in a serious truck accident with severe injuries.
Why truck accident cases are so complicated
If a truck driver clearly caused your accident, you might think your case would be fairly straightforward. But the reality is commercial trucking accidents often turn out to be extremely complicated. Reasons why include:
- The truck driver denies doing anything wrong.
- The truck driver blames you for causing the crash.
- The trucking company refuses to provide you with information about:
- A truck driver's driving history
- The truck's maintenance history
- Data recorded in the "black box" on the truck
- Several different companies could be at fault, including:
- The trucking company that owns and maintains the truck
- The company that loaded the truck (especially if the truck was load improperly)
- The company that packaged items on the truck (especially if items were improperly packaged)
- The truck manufacturer (if a truck defect caused an accident)
- The truck tire manufacturer (if a tire blowout caused the crash)
In addition, each company often has its own unique insurance company and insurance policy. And for every company involved, there's often at least one attorney defending their actions. Add them all up and you have an army of attorneys, insurance adjusters, and trucking company executives doing everything they can to pay you as little as possible.
