Truck accidents are often much more dangerous than accidents involving cars alone, due to the larger size of commercial trucks. A traffic safety fact sheet published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2012 alone, there were 3,921 people killed in the U.S. and an additional 104,000 people injured in accidents involving large trucks.

An accident involving a large truck can happen to anyone, even individuals who practice the best defensive driving techniques. If you have been the victim of a truck accident, our Alexandria truck accident attorneys at The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC can help you pursue a claim to recover compensation for your injuries.

Trucking accidents may be the result of the following:

  • Illicit drug use
  • Speeding
  • Use of over-the-counter or prescription medication
  • Road rage or aggressive driving
  • Following another vehicle too closely (tailgating)
  • Distracted driving
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to use a turn signal or other illegal maneuver
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Vehicle part failure, such as a tire blowout
  • A cargo shift

Who's Liable for Your Injury?

If you are the victim of a trucking accident that you believe to be the fault of the truck driver and if you have sustained damages, you may be entitled to compensation. Parties who may be liable in a trucking accident include the truck driver, the owner of the truck, trucking company, truck manufacturer, and sometimes the shipper or loader of the truck's cargo. This ultimately depends on the cause of the accident.
