Being involved in a truck accident can be absolutely devastating. Filing a truck accident lawsuit can also be stressful and nerve-racking. At Wettermark & Keith, we help our clients deal with many of the unforeseen and difficult circumstances they confront after being injured in an accident. We have years of experience helping Alabama residents get the compensation they deserve after being hurt due to someone else’s actions.
Causes of Alabama Truck Accidents
Truck accidents in Alabama are often the result of someone’s negligence or wrongful behavior. Common causes of truck accidents include:
The truck driver may have been driving over the speed limit
- The truck driver may have been distracted – perhaps using a cellphone, emailing or text messaging
- The truck driver was experiencing fatigue
- The truck’s equipment malfunctioned
- The weight of the load being transported did not fit within regulation guidelines
We perform a thorough investigation to find out exactly what occurred during the accident and why it happened. When there is evidence of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the truck driver and the trucking company, they are liable for the damages and injuries that were caused as a result of their actions.
Types of Injuries in Large Truck Accidents
Victims of truck accidents often suffer serious injuries that require extensive medical care and treatment. Due to the weight of the truck and the force of the impact, the injuries can be extremely debilitating. Typically, people hurt in truck accidents suffer from and have to deal with:
- Head injuries
- Burns on different parts of the body
- Neck and back injuries
- Permanent disability
- Wrongful death
