Determining Responsibility for Semi Truck Accidents
Accidents involving semi-trucks or other large vehicles can have devastating consequences. At Park Law Firm, we’ve successfully handled a variety of accidents involving semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, delivery trucks, and other large vehicles. The owners of a semi-truck involved in a crash are responsible for a variety of issues that may be factors in the accident.
They include the following:
- Failure to properly train drivers
- Improper truck maintenance
- Overworking employees to the point of driver fatigue.
The behavior of individual truck drivers makes them responsible for a number of scenarios as well. These include the following:
- Distractions such as talking on a cell phone or texting
- Intoxication from drugs or alcohol
- Unsafe driving behavior such as speeding, dangerous lane changes, and road rage
If you are involved in an accident with a semi-truck or another large vehicle, your number one priority is to seek medical attention for any injuries. What may appear to be a minor injury can develop into a more serious condition later on, so it’s important to seek medical attention.
Filing a Truck Accident Claim in Utah
First and foremost, report all accidents to law enforcement. Not only is law enforcement there to assist you in a crisis, they are the only ones who can determine who is liable in an accident. Obtaining a record of the police report is a critical piece of evidence your need in order to file a claim for the accident.
Additionally, whenever possible, take photographs at the scene of the accident. Photos are evidence that may be critical to the success of your case. Make sure to take pictures of all injuries as well as the damages to your vehicle. If there appears to be any contributing factors such as damage to the road, construction, or debris, this should be documented as well.
The following is a checklist of items you will need in order to file a claim:
- Police report of the accident
- All medical records and expenses
- Photographs from the accident (if possible)
- Date, time and location of the accident
- Road conditions present at the time of the accident
- Any obvious signs of equipment failure from the semi-truck
- The location of all vehicles involved in the accident
