Protecting Your Rights After a Truck Accident in Hagerstown

Though trucks are a vital part of the economy in our country, unfortunately, due to the size of the vehicle and the strain put on truckers by the extreme standard of their work, truck accidents are all too common. A trucker lost his life to a six-vehicle collision on Interstate 81 in August of 2015. These types of accidents are extremely frequent on all the surrounding interstates, including 81, 70, and 95. If you are one of the hundreds of people who suffered an injury to reckless, negligent, or careless activity from a truck driver, you do not have to remain a victim.

Understanding Truck Accident Causes and Liability

One of the most important things to keep in mind if you want to pursue a personal injury case after a trucking accident is the cause of the incident. If the accident occurred because of the negligent, careless, or reckless behavior of any involved party aside from the victim, you may have grounds for a case.

Common examples of negligence that cause trucking accidents include:

  • Tired or fatigued drivers
  • Speeding
  • Use of a cell phone or other device while driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Poor road conditions
  • A poorly maintained or loaded truck
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective equipment
  • Overtasked drivers

Recovering from a Truck Accident: Your Legal Options

A serious auto accident can impact many areas of your life. Because of the size of the 18-wheeler and the cargo they carry, injuries to a victim of a trucking accident can be life threatening and have lasting impacts on your life. You may have serious medical bills to pay and your injuries may prevent you from working while you recover. Often, insurance companies may take their time with your claim, unfairly attempt to reduce your compensation, or even deny your claim outright.

The Hagerstown truck accident lawyers at Britt•Reed Law Offices have handled thousands of truck accident claims and we can provide you with assistance on every aspect of your case to ensure you receive the medical treatment and financial compensation necessary to fully recover from your injuries.

We can protect your rights if you received any type of injury in an auto accident, including:

  • Cuts or lacerations
  • Bruising and soft tissue damage
  • Fractures
  • Loss of limb
  • Traumatic brain injuries

In addition to the above, if you lost a loved one to a wrongful death in an accident, our team of Hagerstown truck accident attorneys can advocate for you and seek the compensation that you may be entitled to.
