The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that over one hundred truck-related fatalities occur each year in the state of Virginia. Accidents involving large semi-trucks are often more complicated than those involving cars due to the amount of damage that can be caused. In addition to that, there may be separate insurance companies involved for the truck, the driver, and the cargo separately. This can often make resolving a truck accident claim a time-consuming and frustrating ordeal, especially without a qualified attorney.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, you need to obtain legal representation immediately. The separate insurers can delay the legal process, while any injuries you may have suffered need medical attention. These medical bills can quickly stack up, all while you may be potentially missing out on work, leaving you with a lack of income. If you have been injured in such an accident, call Obenshain Law Group today so we can help you get back on your feet.

Trucking accidents are typically caused by one of the following:

  • Driver error: This can include driver fatigue, inattention, distraction, or substance abuse.
  • Truck equipment failure: This can include design flaws, manufacturing errors or mechanical issues with the truck.
  • Weather conditions: Bad weather can cause for a greater increase in accidents in general. Trucks cannot stop as quickly on slick or icy surfaces, so if it is has been raining or snowing there may be a greater chance for a collision.
  • Improper loading: If a truck's cargo has been loaded incorrectly, it can cause them to top over with greater ease.
  • Sub-standard truck drivers/companies: Some drivers or trucks may not be driving or acting in accordance with FMSCA regulations.
