Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Boston

Truck accidents are usually more complicated than the average car crash.

In 2020 alone, over 4,000 people died in accidents that involved large trucks in the United States.

Some common causes of truck accidents include the following.

  • Driver fatigue or inattention
  • Driving over the speed limit 
  • Failing to obey traffic signs or signals
  • Driving while on drugs or under the influence of alcohol
  • Failing to yield the right of way to other drivers

  • Failing to regularly inspect or properly maintain vehicles
  • Hiring unlicensed or improperly trained drivers

Your Legal Options After a Massachusetts Trucking Crash

When you are involved in a truck accident in Boston, it is hard to know what to do next. These collisions frequently result in very serious injuries and significant physical, financial, and emotional hardships. In some cases, if the collision is severe enough it can lead to a wrongful death. 

Fortunately, you do have options available so that you can hold the at-fault parties accountable for your injuries. Massachusetts law enables victims to pursue personal injury lawsuits or insurance claims against the parties responsible for the trucking crash. A Boston truck accident attorney can help you navigate the legal process.

Many trucking companies have insurance policies that pay for any accidents caused by the company’s drivers on the job. Additionally, you could name the company, the driver, and any other liable party in your personal injury lawsuit. By filing a truck accident claim, you can recover financial compensation for medical care, property repairs, and more.

However, proving a truck accident claim in Boston requires a great deal of investigation and legal knowledge. The Cashman Law Firm can provide you with the resources and support you need to identify your optimal legal pathway and secure justice.
