Have You Been Injured In A Truck Accident?

Truck accidents across Maryland lead to severe injuries and fatalities every year. Because of the size difference between semi trucks and passenger cars – the trucks can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds – those in smaller vehicles are more likely to have severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) or spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Those in passenger cars are also more likely to pass away from their injuries, especially in a violent crash like an underride accident.

Potential Reasons For 18-Wheeler Accidents

As an accident attorney, I see many truck accidents every year. These involve not just semi trucks, but also cargo vehicles, garbage trucks, construction vehicles, landscaping vehicles, ISP vehicles, moving trucks and much more. Some reasons for serious accidents include negligence from the driver, such as:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Impaired or drunk driving
  • Not maintaining a proper following distance
  • Breaking the speed limit
  • Aggressive driving
  • Distracted driving – cellphone distractions are prohibited, but common

Additionally, the trucking company may be liable if the load was improperly secured, the truck wasn’t well-maintained, or the driver did not get proper training. In some cases, injured parties can seek financial compensation from both the trucking company and the truck driver. It is crucial to identify all negligent parties who may be liable to maximize compensation.
