Comparing Fault In Truck Accidents

Although truck drivers are highly trained and skilled professionals, trucking is a dangerous industry that results in a high number of injuries and death every year. Accidents involving tractor-trailers, big rigs and semi trucks account for a total of 11% of all motor vehicle accidents in the United States annually. The size of these vehicles and the fast speeds that they travel can lead to devastating crashes—resulting in serious injuries and death to drivers.

Fault in Truck Accidents

At the scene of an accident between an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer and a smaller passenger vehicle, it might be easy to assume that the operator of the truck is responsible. However, this is usually NOT the case. Research from The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute concludes that car drivers actually cause the majority of accidents between large trucks and passenger vehicles.

Unfortunately, 70 commercial truck drivers were killed in accidents with other motor vehicles in 2017 and even more were injured.

If you are a truck driver that has been injured in a crash, you may have suffered painful injuries, required expensive surgery and medical treatment or have been kept out of work. As a result, you probably have lost wages, making it difficult for you and your family during this time.

Rollover Is Deadly Truck Accident - Rollover

Large trucks are more susceptible to rollover, which is when the truck loses contact with the road and ends up on its side, or even upside down.

48% of large truck occupant deaths occurred when trucks rolled over in a crash.

The most common causes of truck rollover are:

  1. The high center of gravity causes the truck to lose stability;
  2. Unstable heavy loads shifting during a route;
  3. Not adjusting properly to speed or curves in the road;
  4. Slippery road surface; and
  5. Brakes in poor condition.

In addition to rollover, other common causes of truck accidents can be found here.

Workers’ Compensation For Injured Truck Drivers

If you are employed as a truck driver, and are injured on the job, you may be entitled to receive Workers’ Compensation insurance benefits.

This includes assistance for:

  1. Medical bills;
  2. Travel expenses to and from health care appointments; and
  3. Lost wages.

Filing for workers’ compensation is time sensitive in New York State. Here are the steps that you should take once you have suffered an injury at work:

  1. Seek immediate medical treatment;
  2. Notify your supervisor or employer of your injury; and
  3. File a C-3 form with the Workers’ Compensation Board, available online here.

In addition to obtaining workers’ compensation benefits, you can also sue a third party for their negligence in causing your accident. Call our elite and top rated staff of aggressive, tenacious and hardworking Buffalo, New York truck accident injury lawyers IMMEDIATELY at 716-839-3939. We will fight on your behalf to attempt to obtain the best result for your personal injury case in Buffalo, New York; Rochester, New York; Niagara Falls, New York and beyond.

Who Can Be Sued By Truck Drivers?

In New York State, you generally cannot sue your employer for an on-the-job injury. Workers’ compensation typically covers medical expenses and lost wages. However, even if you are receiving financial assistance from workers’ compensation, you can sue a third party that is responsible for your injuries if they were negligent.

Our proven truck accident attorneys can assist you in filing a third party personal injury claim to sue those responsible for damages. Examples of parties that you can sue are:

1) The Other Driver

Large tractor-trailers, big rigs and semi trucks on the road can be intimidating to drivers of smaller vehicles. As a result, car drivers sometimes make unsafe or reckless maneuvers to pass trucks. All drivers are responsible for following the rules of the road and driving safely. If another driver was negligent and you suffered personal injuries you may be able to sue that driver for negligence. Call 716-839-3939 now so your rights can be protected!

2) Mechanics, Service Technicians and Parts Manufacturers

Commercial trucking companies have a duty to properly maintain their vehicles. Often times, companies hire mechanics to service and repair their trucks. If you crashed because you had a tire blow out or because of faulty brakes, the mechanic or service technician can be held liable for damages if they failed to provide proper service on the truck.
