Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can have numerous causes, and identifying the responsible party is crucial for your case. Here are some common reasons:
- Driver Fatigue: Fatigue among truck drivers is a persistent issue that can lead to compromised road safety. Working long hours and pushing oneself beyond safe limits can impair reaction times and increase the likelihood of accidents.
- Negligent Maintenance: Failure to properly maintain critical components such as brakes and tires can contribute to accidents.
- Distracted Driving: Truck drivers can be distracted by various factors, including mobile devices, eating, or adjusting in-cab technologies.
- Impaired Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a significant hazard on the road. Truck drivers who operate their vehicles while impaired pose a severe risk to themselves and others.
- Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a truck driver's ability to stop or maneuver their vehicle safely. It can lead to rear-end collisions, loss of control, and an increased risk of rollovers.
- Poor Weather Conditions: Inclement weather, such as rain, snow, ice, or fog, can create hazardous road conditions. Trucks, due to their size and weight, require more time and distance to stop, making them more susceptible to accidents in adverse weather.
Common Types of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can be catastrophic and fatal, and various factors can contribute to their occurrence. Below are some of the most common types of truck accidents to watch out for:

Recovering Fair Compensation: Types of Damages
Truck accident victims may be eligible for various types of compensation, including:
- Medical Expenses: Coverage for past, present, and future medical bills, including surgeries, hospital stays, medications, and rehabilitation.
- Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to the accident, including potential future earnings if the injuries result in long-term disability.
- Pain and Suffering: Damages awarded for physical pain, emotional distress, and reduced quality of life resulting from the accident and injuries.

Can you get workers’ comp after a crash in the fire engine?
Workers’ compensation covers you as a firefighter whenever you are performing any work-related duty. It does not only apply when you are literally fighting a fire. In many situations, driving to the fire can be more dangerous because of unpredictable traffic conditions. If you were riding in your station’s fire engine when it got into a crash, then you can still file for workers’ compensation to take care of you while you recover from your injuries.
Is Workplace Violence Covered by Workers' Compensation?Though it’s typically low on employees’ radar, workplace violence is one of the top causes of on-the-job death in the country. Workers’ compensation covers attacks, whether from coworkers, clients, customers, or third parties as long as they are related to work. Disputes of a personal nature do not meet the insurance’s terms for coverage, so injuries that result from such fights will usually not be covered.
Is premises liability the same as personal liability?
When personal liability is brought up in an injury case, it considers the wrongful actions of the defendant specifically, like a driver getting behind the wheel while drunk. The concept of premises liability is concerned with unsafe conditions on a property, not necessarily who created that hazard.
A coworker dropped a tool on my head – do I have to file a claim against them?
If your coworker is the one who hit you with a falling object, like a loose hammer or bolt, then it might be tempting to sue them directly for their negligence. However, if you have workers’ compensation insurance coverage, then you would file a claim against that instead. The purpose of workers’ comp is to get injured workers the financial benefits they need to recover from an accident without needing to worry about the who’s and why’s of the workplace accident.
