How Is An Auto Accident Determined To Be A Truck Accident?

When you have been in an accident involving a truck, it is defined as a truck accident instead of an auto accident. There are significant differences in how the two types of accidents are handled by insurance companies, trucking companies and the driver's involved. An auto accident would be with a truck such as a pickup driven by your neighbor, while a truck accident involves a semi or tractor trailer driven by a contracted driver on the job. If you have sustained injury from a truck accident, you will want to consult a lawyer as soon as possible. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will help you understand your rights and represent you in the pursuit of compensation.

At the North Carolina law office of R. Steve Bowden & Associates PC, we aggressively represent clients in truck accident cases as we seek full compensation. Our attorneys have decades of experience focused on personal injury law. We know that The Insurance Company Is NOT On Your Side, and you will need an attorney to fight for the compensation you deserve.

The Various Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are fatal and can result in death, disfigurement, serious bodily harm and possibly have long-term effects on the injured party's health. We have not experienced a case where a truck accident was intentional but there are many different reasons why a truck accident occurred such as:

  • Improper lane change
  • Defective equipment
  • Improper cargo load
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Weather conditions
  • Unsafe passing
  • Inadequate training
  • Lack of sleep

No matter the cause of the accident, if you have sustained an injury or lost a loved one in a truck accident, contact an attorney as soon as possible.
