Rockport Types of 18 Wheeler Accident Injuries
Due to the size, weight, and the loads carried by an 18-wheeler creates a disproportionate safety issue, making the surrounding cars at-risk of being involved in an accident that can potentially cause serious injuries and damage. Statistics show that 18-wheeler accidents are much more likely to cause catastrophic injury or death than a passenger car accident.
Some of the most common causes of 18-wheeler accidents are caused by lack of failure, lack of training, overloaded trucks, fatigue, speeding, running of the road, failure to yield the right of way, reckless driving, mechanical failure, and distracted driving. As a result injuries sustained by the victim are catastrophic. Some of the most common injuries include brain damage, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and in some cases death. If you or a loved one have been involved in an 18-wheeler accident and are faced with medical bills, lost wages, and property damage we can help. The experienced attorneys at Carabin and Shaw in Rockport Texas will fight to protect your rights and get you the compensation that you need for you and your family.
Because the trucking industry is heavily regulated and held to high standards of safety, trucking companies will often conduct thorough investigations in order to establish a percentage of comparative faults for the drivers of passenger vehicles. This can be a problem for victims looking to file personal injury claims. Insurance companies also focus their efforts on shifting blame away from truck drivers so that they do not overcompensate victims. A client-focused, results-driven attorney from Carabin and Shaw can greatly reduce your risk of being unfairly compensated.
