Causes of Truck Wrecks

Most Common Causes of Truck Wrecks

Before you litigate, you must have a full understanding of what type of truck wreck case you have. Each type of case is different. You will want to tailor your preservation and spoliation requests, pleaded claims, and discovery requests based on the type of case. 

There are several types of truck wreck cases that are common, including:

  1. Rear-end collisions: These occur when a truck collides with the vehicle in front of it. Rear-end collisions are often caused by driver error, such as following too closely or failing to pay attention to the road.
  2. Jackknife accidents: A jackknife accident occurs when a truck's trailer swings out to the side, forming a 90-degree angle with the cab. These accidents are often caused by a driver braking suddenly or improperly, causing the trailer to swing out of control.
  3. Rollover accidents: These occur when a truck flips over onto its side or roof. Rollover accidents are often caused by a combination of factors, including speed, road conditions, and driver error.
  4. Underride accidents: These occur when a car slides under a truck, often resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. Underride accidents can occur when a truck stops suddenly, or when a car is unable to stop in time.
  5. Blind spot accidents: These occur when a truck driver fails to see another vehicle in its blind spot and collides with it. Blind spot accidents can be particularly dangerous, as the other vehicle may be crushed between the truck and another object.

These are just a few examples of the most common types of truck wreck cases. Each case is unique, and the specific circumstances involved will impact the legal strategy and potential damages recoverable. It is important to consult with an experienced truck wreck attorney to evaluate your case and develop an appropriate legal strategy.
