Large trucks carrying goods is a common sight across U.S. roadways, including here in Illinois. The normal day-to-day lives of Americans can be severely affected in the absence of these trucks, since they carry consumer items from one place to another.
However, trucks also can be responsible for serious accidents. The severity of a truck accident can be much worse than a car or motor vehicle accident because of its massive size. A truck accident can result in fatalities or serious injuries that can lead to permanent disabilities.
A truck accident can be caused by variety of reasons, including driver fatigue, speeding, drunk driving and mechanical defects. There are standards for the trucking industry and drivers must follow proper procedures regarding truck maintenance and safe driving. Any violations are dealt with severely by authorities. A truck accident victim or the victim’s family has the legal right to seek compensation, including lost wages, medical expenses, disability or death benefits, from a negligent party.
