What To Do After A Tractor Trailer Accident?
The amount of confusion immediately following a tractor trailer crash can be great. You’ll want to make sure the police and any necessary emergency workers are called immediately to assist with any injuries or burns.
The police will take extensive notes, statements from all the involved parties and any witnesses, and take photos as part of their accident report. If possible, you will also want to document as much as you can, including witness statements.
If your phone’s camera is working, be sure to take as many pictures as possible of the damage to your vehicle and any injuries you and any other passengers sustained. Doing so can help you ensure that anything the police missed is still documented.
What Are The Leading Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents?
Driver Error – Despite the increased size and impact of truck accidents, tractor trailer drivers often drive recklessly. They often drive drowsy to reach mileage goals set by their companies and may be operating their tractor trailer while under the influence or while distracted.
Poorly Maintained Tractor Trailers – Tractor trailers are often driven thousands of miles per week and if they are not properly cared for, they can become dangerous quickly. While worn brake pads or a cracked windshield must be dealt with if they occur on smaller vehicles, they can be the cause of a major traffic accident on a tractor trailer.
Equipment Failure – Defective parts on a tractor trailer may not be the fault of the driver, but they can turn deadly. Your attorney will be able to tell if a trucking company or manufacturer may be liable for your accident in addition to the tractor trailer driver.
Improperly Loaded Cargo – Loading the beds of commercial tractor trailers must be done carefully and in accordance with the law. If they are loaded improperly, the contents on the tractor trailer may spill out onto the road and cause accidents and injuries.
