Negligent drivers cause accidents -- get compensated for yours

When a truck driver heads out on a route, you expect his or her vehicle to be in good condition and for him or her to follow the rules of the road. These drivers are in control of vehicles that haul massive loads across the United States; the vehicles could be thousands of pounds in weight, making them a potentially deadly force in a crash.

In Maryland and Washington, D.C., a normal year has around 2,000 accidents involving these kinds of vehicles. While some may be due to outside influences or a smaller vehicle, the fact is that many are a result of the driver of the truck being negligent while on duty. Trying to meet deadlines means the driver may not get enough sleep or take breaks like he or she needs, and that puts everyone in danger.

When you're hurt by a driver who was drunk, fatigued or speeding, there are a few things you can do. You may be able to seek compensation from the driver personally, and you could also seek compensation from the driver's employer, who wasn't enforcing national regulations. In some cases, you may even be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the vehicle, especially if there was a malfunction leading to an accident.

No one wants to suffer injuries from a truck accident, not only because they can be severe and debilitating. The legal hassle of seeking compensation can be hard while you're trying to heal, too, which is why many people seek additional help. Our website has more information on truck accidents and how you can get help for your legal case while you recover.
