Truck Accident FAQ
- What are common causes of truck accidents?
Just like car accidents, truck accidents can happen in the blink of an eye for countless reasons. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Truck Driver Negligence
If truck drivers are speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or sleep-deprived, they may cause serious accidents.
- Poor Truck Maintenance
Big trucks need regular maintenance to keep the brakes, tires, engines, and other components in good working condition. If these parts fail, accidents can occur.
- Overloaded Trucks
Trucks have maximum weight limits, but drivers and truck companies may exceed these limits to maximize profits. Overloaded trucks are difficult to maneuver or stop and may lead to accidents.

- Who is responsible for my truck accident?
Some of the parties who can be held responsible for causing truck accidents include:
- Highway designers and maintenance crews
- Other drivers
- Truck drivers
- Truck manufacturers
- Truck owners
- Trucking companies
The attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers will investigate your truck accident and determine who or what caused it. Then, we’ll do everything in our power to hold that party accountable for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
- What can I receive compensation for?
After your accident, you may have a list of expenses piling up and no way to pay for them. But if the accident wasn’t your fault, you can file a claim for your damages, including:
- Lost wages—both current and future
- Medical expenses—both current and future
- Pain and suffering
- What should I do if the insurance company contacts me?
Trucking companies are represented by big insurance companies that are in business to make money—not pay you for your accident-related expenses. That’s why it’s important that you never volunteer information about the accident and keep your contact with the insurance adjuster brief. He or she may twist your words and cause you to forfeit your rights to compensation. Better yet, let Jason Stone Injury Lawyers speak with the insurance company for you.
