Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Because multiple parties could be held responsible for a semi-truck accident, determining the cause of the accident it typically key to determining liability.

Common causes of big-rig accidents include:

There are multiple additional factors that contribute to these types of accidents, which is why hiring an attorney is in your best interest. At Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC, our legal team is experienced in handling these types of claims and know what evidence is required to prove both the cause of an accident and who is responsible.

Truck Accidents Caused By Drunk Driving

State law regulates how high a truck driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) can be while driving. Laws tend to be more stringent for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, who are responsible for maintaining the largest vehicles on the road. A CMV can weigh anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds. In Kansas, truck drivers can’t have a BAC of over 0.04%.

While penalties for DUIs are significantly higher for truck drivers, they are still caught driving commercial motor vehicles with a high BAC or under the influence of some kind of controlled substance. If you were injured in an accident with a drunk or drugged CMV driver, give us a call as soon as possible. Our attorneys at Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC have been helping people seek compensation for their injuries since 1979.

Steps to Take After a Truck Accident

While any type of vehicle collision can be a traumatic experience, crashes involving large trucks have the potential to be particularly shocking. If you should ever be involved in a truck accident, it is vital you remain calm and check all involved parties for injuries. If anyone appears to be hurt, call an ambulance at once.

Once medical attention has been summoned, call the police and report the accident. A police officer will help you control the situation, move your vehicle to a safe location if possible, and create an official report of the incident. Cooperate with the police, but do not divulge any unnecessary details that could be misconstrued as an admission of fault. Avoid comments such as “I didn’t see them,” or even “I’m sorry,” as they can possibly be used against you later on.

If possible, take detailed photographs of the accident scene, including:

  • Damage to all involved vehicles
  • Tire tracks
  • Damaged property
  • Skid marks

These photographs can serve as valuable evidence when recreating the circumstances an accident and help determine who is at fault for the collision. Exchange and record important insurance information with the other involved drivers, including names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and license plate numbers.

Once all immediate requirements have been satisfied, it is vital you consult with a knowledgeable Wichita truck accident lawyer from our firm to determine the most appropriate course of action to take. An attorney from our firm can sort through the facts of your case and craft a strategy that maximizes your chances of securing compensation.
