Types of Truck Accidents

Several types of truck accidents can occur on Nebraska’s roadways. Different types of truck accidents can cause different types of injuries. Some of the most common types of truck accidents include:

  • Jackknife accidents
  • Rollover accidents
  • Underride accidents
  • Tire blowout accidents
  • Override accidents
  • Under-ride accidents
  • Brake failure accidents

If you have been injured in a truck accident that was caused by the negligence of the truck driver or trucking company, you may be entitled to compensation. Our truck accident lawyers in Bellevue can help you understand your rights and fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Drugged driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Defective truck parts
  • Improperly trained truck drivers

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?

Truck accident claims can be more complex than typical car accident claims. This is because there are often multiple parties that can be held liable for a truck accident.

Potentially liable parties in a truck accident claim include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The truck maintenance company
  • The cargo loading company
  • The government (if the accident was caused by a hazardous road condition)

Because multiple parties may be at fault for a truck accident, there are often multiple insurance companies involved. These insurance companies will do everything in their power to pay you as little as possible. Our truck accident lawyers in Bellevue know how to build strong cases and will fight to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Common Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents are often much more severe than car accidents. This is because of the large size and weight of commercial trucks. Truck accidents can cause serious and life-altering injuries.

Some of the most common truck accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Death

Truck accident injuries can require extensive medical treatment and have a lasting impact on your life. Our truck accident attorneys in Bellevue will work with medical experts to help determine the full extent of your injuries and how they will impact your life moving forward.

How Much is a Truck Accident Case Worth?

One of the most common questions we get from our clients is, “How much is my truck accident case worth?” It is important to remember that no two cases are the same. The value of your truck accident case will depend on a variety of factors.

Some of the factors that can influence the value of your truck accident claim include:

  • The severity and extent of your injuries
  • The cost of your medical treatment
  • Whether you will require ongoing medical care
  • Whether your injuries have impacted your ability to work
  • Your estimated future lost wages
  • The impact the accident has had on your quality of life

Why Do I Need a Truck Accident Lawyer?

After a truck accident, insurance companies will often try to take advantage of you. They will try to get you to admit fault for the accident and may try to get you to settle for much less than what your claim is worth. Our Bellevue truck accident lawyers know the tactics insurance companies use to pay as little as possible. We will fight to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
