Maryland Truck Accident Attorney
Large trucks are a critical part of a healthy economy, transporting the goods, products, and foods that we use and enjoy on a daily basis. But while trucks on Maryland’s roads are essential, they also create a risk – a large truck accident can be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries to the people involved. If you or your loved one has been injured or killed in a truck accident, our Maryland truck accident attorneys want to discuss the accident with you today, and explore your options for financial compensation.
Top Causes of Truck Accidents in Maryland
Truck accidents occur for myriad reasons, but in nearly all cases, truck accidents are completely preventable. Some of the top causes of truck accidents in Maryland include:
- Truck driver fatigue;
- Driver intoxication/impairment;
- Dangerous driving behavior;
- Following too closely;
- Distracted driving;
- Driving too fast for conditions;
- Mechanical/equipment failures, such as defective tires or brakes; and
- Cargo shifts.
Whatever the cause of the truck accident, the outcome is often the same, with victims suffering traumatic injuries.
Common Truck Accident Injuries
When a large truck and a standard passenger vehicle collide, it is often the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle that suffer the greatest amount of damage. Injuries that may result in a truck accident include, but are not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis;
- Broken or crushed bones;
- Internal injuries and bleeding;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Lacerations; and
- Amputation injuries.
These injury types can forever change the course of a victim’s life. In addition to large amounts of pain and loss of mobility, a person may also be forced to stop working as a result of their injury, may require intensive and long-term medical treatment, and may develop depression or other psychological injuries as a result.
