Driving a moving truck requires special skill. While professional moving truck drivers generally must have commercial drivers’ licenses, just about anyone with a driver’s license and a credit card can rent a moving truck and hit the road. Unfortunately, many people fail to appreciate the differences between driving an ordinary passenger vehicle and a moving truck until it is too late. As a result, they follow too closely, take turns too fast, and make other mistakes that put themselves and others in harm’s way.
Of course, commercial truck drivers make mistakes, too, and when they do their employers can often be held financially responsible. In fact, depending on the cause (or causes) of your moving truck accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation from multiple parties. These could include:
If you were injured while driving a moving truck, you could have one or more compensation claims as well. Was the truck you rented improperly maintained? If bald tires or worn brake pads contributed to your accident, the rental company could be responsible. Did someone cut you off in traffic, leaving you with nowhere to go? Were you hit by a driver who was distracted or who had run a red light? If another driver is to blame for your injuries, you could have a claim against his or her insurance company.
The possible causes of moving truck injuries are far too numerous to list. The same goes for the potential consequences. To get the help you need to win the compensation you deserve, schedule a free consultation at Morrow & Sheppard LLP today.
