Truck Accident

A truck accident is a serious occurrence that can include major injuries and damages to both the truck involved and other vehicles and pedestrians. Even low-impact truck accidents can have grave consequences, given the large size of trucks. Truck accidents can occur due to a large number of reasons, such as driver fatigue, unlicensed drivers, mechanical failures, tire blowouts, overloaded and unbalanced trucks or trailers, speeding and total brake failure. The results of these accidents are often long lasting. Fatalities are common, and injuries are often of the severe category. Vehicle damage is usually extensive as well. The total costs from a truck accident, including medical, insurance, and mental costs, can be catastrophic.
