Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Arlington

In a city filled with restaurants, bars, businesses, and residential housing, truck deliveries happen many times a day. These drivers spend long hours on their commute and suffer through rigorous work conditions to make delivery deadlines and secure their jobs. The industry faces immense pressure from both suppliers and consumers, and as a result, drivers often experience driver fatigue. This fatigue can manifest in poor reaction time, impaired or blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, or falling asleep at the wheel. When drivers are hit with fatigue, they tend to cause accidents, and the size and weight of these vehicles may result in serious injuries. Truck accidents can also be caused by reckless driving, like speeding and weaving in and out of lanes, and drug use by drivers trying to stay awake during their long drives.

Common Injuries Truck accidents can result in a variety of injuries, but the most common include:

  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries, and
  • Death

Our Arlington attorneys can help you with your medical treatment and bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, inconvenience damages, as well as damages for permanency.
