Being involved in a truck accident is one of the most terrifying experiences an automobile driver can ever be involved in. Whether the car accident is with a tractor-trailer, an 18-wheeler, semi-truck, big rig, tanker, dump truck or some other commercial vehicle the experience can be devastating. Truck accidents are far too common on North Carolina roads and highways and often result in serious injuries and fatalities.
There are several causes of truck accidents in Raleigh Durham and elsewhere in North Carolina, including speeding, driver negligence or driver errors, driver fatigue, improper driver training, improper truck maintenance, improper truck loading, manufacturing defects, and possibly negligence on the part of the trucking company or employer.

Given the massive size and weight of a truck, it is no wonder that the consequences can be catastrophic or even fatal. Trucking accidents can lead to serious injuries such as head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, disfigurement, scars, and internal bleeding. These injures may be serious and even permanent, which can result in significant physical, financial, psychological and emotional damages for both the victim and the victim’s family.
By law, a victim has the right to recover economic and non-economic damages from the party at fault, such as property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation expenses. Of course, truck accidents are rather complex, as multiple parties may be deemed liable for the accident, such as the truck driver, the trucking company, and even the manufacturer of the truck’s parts.
