Four Common Types of Canton Trucking Accidents

Truck crashes are frequently caused by the negligence of truck drivers themselves. Canton accidents have been caused by sudden stopping/braking, speeding, fatigue, or other forms of careless driving.

The four most common types of truck accidents that can occur are:

  • Underride accidents- the vehicle ends up underneath the rear part of a tractor-trailer
  • Rollover accidents- sudden braking or veering off the road causes the truck to roll on its side
  • Jackknife accidents- the tractor-trailer ends up in a 90-degree angle
  • Tire blowout accidents- the tire tread falls apart or is punctured by road debris

In most cases, truck accidents have very serious consequences. Truck accident victims can face debilitating injuries forcing time taken off from work and costly medical bills. The financial compensation that most insurance companies want to offer is lower than what accident victims deserve.

Insurance companies, especially trucking insurance companies, only want to offer the least amount of compensation that they can- to save the insurance company money. That is why you should hire a trucking accident attorney if you have been injured.

Here’s what a good Canton truck accident attorney can do for you.

  • Present you with legal information regarding the chances of you succeeding a judgment
  • Explain the process of filing a claim, including what to anticipate
  • Research the surrounding factors of your Canton accident
  • Communicate with the insurance companies to fight for your deserved compensation
  • Be your representation every step of the way
