Rear-end collisions caused by semi-tractor-trailer trucks can be caused by poor maintenance. For example, an 18-wheeler’s braking system could be damaged or worn down, making it hard for the trucker to stop their semi before hitting a vehicle in front of them. In some truck accident cases involving mechanical issues, a claim might be filed against the mechanic who did not repair or maintain the truck’s braking system. If the truck driver is employed by a trucking or transportation company, that company might also be held liable for damages.
An Insurance Research Council (IRC) study states:
- 85% of accident victims who received accident insurance claim payouts hired an attorney.
- Injured claimants who retained a lawyer received higher payouts than unrepresented claimants.
- On average, injury claimants who retained attorneys received 300% more economic compensation than those who did not retain an attorney.
At Montlick Injury Attorneys, our legal professionals represent clients in all types of motor vehicle accidents on a contingency fee basis.*** If we are able to represent you or your loved one, you pay nothing up-front, and we are only paid after we obtain a judgment or a negotiated settlement agreement against the at-fault driver or company. In the rare possibility that our firm is unsuccessful in securing a financial recovery, you or your family member will not be charged for our legal services.
In most trucking accident cases, the crash is caused by a truck driver’s negligent or careless actions. Rear-end collisions involving large commercial trucks are often caused by:
- Sudden stopping without a reason to do so;
- Turning without signaling;
- Improper turns;
- Turning too wide;
- Driving a truck without working stoplights or turn signals;
- and other reasons.
