Do I have a truck accident claim?

To determine if you have a truck accident injury claim, you will need to look at two factors:

  1. The types of injuries you suffered, and
  2. The type of accident that caused them

Injuries can be caused by a wide range of truck accidents, including:

  • T-bone collisions
  • Blind spot / no zone accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Brake malfunctions / lack of braking
  • Rollover or under-ride accidents
  • Jackknifing accidents

Other issues that can lead to accidents include lost loads, tire blowouts, driver distraction, and drowsiness. Truck drivers have also been known to cause accidents due to texting or talking on the phone while driven.

Regardless of what type of accident led to your injuries, you deserve fair compensation. Make sure you have the right legal team on your side by contacting Kalka & Baer LLC for a free consultation.
