Truck Accidents Can Cause Significant Injuries and Financial Losses

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and other large commercial motor vehicles can weigh up to 30 times as much as passenger vehicles. These vehicles also sit higher and have longer stopping distances than most cars. These factors can combine to make truck accidents among the most severe and devastating types of auto collisions.

The force of a truck crash can cause life-altering and deadly injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Loss of mobility or paralysis
  • Head, neck, and shoulder injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage

Medical costs for truck accident injuries can be substantial, and victims often incur other losses that can negatively affect their finances and future. Our Caldwell, ID, truck accident lawyers want to help you secure the monetary resources you need to get your life back on track. In general, we can seek compensation for:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost income and employment benefits
  • Lost future earnings and lost earning capacity
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
  • Household services
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and mental anguish
  • Diminished quality of life

If your loved one suffered a fatal truck accident injury, our wrongful death attorneys can pursue compensation on behalf of their estate and survivors. Damages may include medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and the loss of your family member’s support and services.

Liability for Truck Accident Damages

Multiple parties can be financially liable for truck accidents. Responsibility will rest with the individual or entity whose negligent actions led to the crash. Those at-fault may include:

  • The truck driver. Driver error is a primary cause of auto accidents. Driver negligence includes speeding, driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol, fatigued driving, or disobeying traffic laws or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.
  • The trucking company. Trucking company negligence may include a failure to vet or train drivers, conduct mandatory alcohol or drug screenings, or maintain proper records. We may also be able to hold a trucking company financially responsible for a driver’s negligent actions under a legal principle known as vicarious liability.
  • The entity in charge of truck maintenance. If a vehicle problem, such as a blown tire, engine trouble, or faulty brakes, contributed to your crash, the fault may rest with the truck’s owner, a mechanic, or a garage.
  • The entity in charge of the truck’s cargo. The owner or loader of the truck’s cargo may be liable if your accident involved shifting, falling, overloaded, or unsecured cargo.
  • A negligent third party. Our Caldwell, ID, truck accident attorneys can determine if third parties, including property owners, government entities, or other motorists, could be liable.

Idaho is an at-fault state for auto accidents, meaning drivers must pay for collisions they cause. The state mandates that motorists carry auto liability insurance to cover bodily injuries and property damages. According to the Idaho Transportation Department, minimum policy limits for commercial vehicles range from $750,000 to $5 million in coverage, depending on the type of cargo the truck carries.

Evidence in a Truck Accident Case

To win truck accident compensation, you will have to face powerful defendants, like the trucking company, its insurer, and its lawyers. You will also need to construct a robust case, which may mean securing evidence currently in the hands of opposing parties.

Our Caldwell, ID, truck accident attorneys can stand by you every step of the way and handle case building for you. Our team can:

  • Request medical records, police reports, and other relevant case documents
  • Locate and interview eyewitnesses
  • Hire and consult with case experts, including medical professionals and crash reconstructionists
  • Visit the accident scene to collect photographs, videos, and crash debris
  • Find and obtain available cell phone, dashcam, traffic camera, or surveillance footage
  • Send spoliation letters to the trucking company demanding it share evidence in its possession, such as driver’s logs and the truck’s “black box” data recorder
  • Prove your losses using pay stubs, receipts, bills, and estimates

What Can You Do to Help With Your Claim?

There are a few simple things you can do after a truck accident to assist with your case, including:

  • Take care of your health. If you have not seen a physician since your accident, we can connect you with an experienced doctor. Getting treatment protects your health and creates a medical record for your case. Ensure you follow your doctor’s orders, attend follow-up appointments, and avoid activities that could aggravate your injuries.
  • Preserve evidence. If physically able at the time of the crash, collect as much information as possible, including photos and videos of your injuries and vehicle damages and contact information for involved parties. As your claim progresses, make sure to save medical records and bills, document time lost at work, and keep a diary detailing your physical pain and suffering and emotional and mental state.
  • Be careful when talking to insurance agents. If an insurance agent contacts you, be polite but do not provide details about your accident, injuries, or the cause of the collision. Do not agree to give a recorded statement or accept an initial settlement offer. Instead, tell the agent to direct further communications through your legal team.

What Is Idaho’s Truck Accident Statute of Limitations?

According to Idaho Statutes § 5-219, you have two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

You must either negotiate a settlement or file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, or you could get left with little or no compensation. That’s why it’s crucial that you file your truck accident insurance claims and begin your case as soon as possible.
