670991_630x354Truck accidents can be gruesome. A huge truck weighing 80,000 lbs. can cause considerable damage when it jackknifes or rolls over or ploughs into cars. Often the truck sprawls across the highway leaving cars nowhere to go but to crash into the truck or each other. Where drivers or passengers are injured due to the negligence or recklessness of others in a truck accident, they have valid claims for damages.

Proof of liability in these cases often depends on the attorney’s understanding of trucks and how they can malfunction. Truck accident litigation differs from most because of the large number of insurance companies that can be involved in multi-car accidents. Truck accident insurance companies also handle claims in a specific manner, including using their own teams of investigators in most cases. It is best therefore to retain the services of an attorney familiar with truck accident lawsuits and adept at establishing truck company negligence and negotiating with truck insurance companies. It is urged that truck accident victims contact an Irvine personal injury lawyer experienced in truck accident litigation.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck companies pay drivers by the mile and push them to meet tight delivery targets. This encourages drivers to speed and continue driving after they are tired. This leads to many unfortunate wrecks. A poorly loaded trailer can be unbalanced and slide out of control on turns. Neglected maintenance may result in a truck’s brakes failing when it needs to stop. Some drivers have been found to have been driving drunk.
