The Help You Need After A Truck Accident Injury
Semitrucks and tractor-trailers are common sights on the roadways and highways in Severna Park and throughout the surrounding areas. Drivers are used to sharing the road with big rigs on I-97, I-95, I-50, I-695, I-895 and I-85. Unfortunately, the high volume of trucking traffic also means that truck accidents occur frequently.
Since semitrucks are so much larger and heavier than cars and other passenger vehicles, it is usually the other vehicles that are severely damaged and occupants seriously injured.

Causes Of Truck Accidents
There are numerous reasons that a truck accident may occur, such as:
- Driver negligence: When truck drivers are speeding, driving recklessly, driving over the number of hours that they are legally allowed, using drugs or alcohol, or are otherwise being negligent behind the wheel of a big rig, catastrophic accidents can occur.
- Unbalanced/unsecured cargo: If cargo is improperly loaded onto a truck, it may have devastating effects. Unbalanced cargo results in the truck being extremely difficult to control, while unsecured cargo can spill out onto the road and cause a dangerous hazard.
- Failure to maintain truck: Whether the driver or a trucking company is responsible for the care and maintenance of a truck, when it is not properly maintained, other drivers are at risk. Parts that come off of the truck, brake failures and other types of breakdowns can cause truck jackknifes and serious accidents.
