Investigating Truck Accidents Requires Expertise, Experience and Resources
Thoroughly investigating a truck accident requires technical experience, a comprehensive knowledge of the law and substantial financial resources. The investigating attorney will need to pinpoint the source of the truck accident. For instance, the truck driver may have been negligent, or inattentive at the wheel, thereby causing the accident. Or perhaps the truck driver’s employer failed to ensure that its employees comply with regulatory standards and requirements associated with truck driving and commercial transport.
If the truck accident was the result of a defective part on the truck, such as a brake failure, improperly secured cargo, or inadequate or substandard repair of the truck, research will need to be conducted as to who manufactured, designed or sold the defective part, who improperly secured the cargo, or who improperly performed the truck maintenance. You will need a team of knowledgeable, skilled truck accident attorneys who know all the options that are available to you and will be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve after your accident.
Truck accidents can be complicated and can require the expertise of many specialists in order to fully investigate the source of your injuries, the cause of the truck accident, and identify all of the parties who should be held accountable. Experienced mechanics should be consulted to fully assess the condition and operability of the truck. The truck driver and their employer should be interviewed. Witnesses should be identified and their statements taken down in writing as evidence. Similarly, you should be examined by medical professionals who can assess the severity of your injuries and whether there is the potential for any long-term complications from those injuries.
Photographs of the scene of the accident will need to be taken at approximately the same time of day as the truck accident that caused your injuries, and preferably taken on the same day of the week as your accident to accurately reflect normal traffic conditions at the time of the accident. Photographs of any damage to your vehicle and your body should also be taken. Police reports, witnesses’ statements and any video evidence of the truck accident (if available) will need to be collected and prepared for trial.

Common Types of Injuries Caused By Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can produce quite an array of injuries for those people involved in the accident. A few of the more common injuries associated with truck accidents include:
Due to the large size of the trucks involved in these types of accidents, it is not uncommon to see broken or fractured bones, abrasions from broken glass, and injuries to the face when the airbag deploys as common impact-type injuries from truck accidents.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Sprains and strains are often experienced by those involved in accidents with large trucks. Contusions and bruising are also common.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
The force of impact during a truck accident is sufficient to cause damage to the spinal cord. Spinal cord damage can cause loss of sensation in certain parts of the body, nerve damage and partial or full paralysis.
Being involved in an accident with a large truck is often traumatizing for the other parties involved. It can be downright terrifying. This can generate post-traumatic stress disorder in some people.
Death is a possibility during a truck accident. If someone you love has been killed in a truck accident, you’ll need to seek legal representation.
