The NCSA (National Center for Statistical Analysis) compiled statistics on significant truck accidents in the United States in one year. The study found that almost five thousand truck accidents resulted in fatalities. The study also found that 68% of these accidents occurred in rural areas. This goes against the common assumption that congested areas experience more truck accidents. The study found that 78% of truck accidents happened on weekdays, and 66% occurred during daylight hours. While it might seem that daylight driving is safer than nighttime, the high percentage may be because there are more cars on the road with trucks. There are many reasons for truck accidents, including driver impairment. This study found that only 1% of fatal accidents were due to DUI.
Instead, a higher accident rate was found among those truck drivers who had been convicted of speeding. This study found that 27% of the truck drivers involved in the accident had a least one earlier speeding conviction. In this study on truck accidents, these were the five states with the highest truck accident fatalities: Texas, Florida, California, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. The statistics for the previous year also had these as the top states.

It is difficult to analyze these numbers and determine why these states are at the top of the list. This is especially true since the study also found the most significant percentage of accidents involved truck drivers with speeding convictions. However, that was still only 27%, meaning almost three-thirds of the fatal accidents had other causes. These remaining truck accidents could have happened for any of the other usual causes. Many may be due to poorly constructed roads. This cause might explain why the same states occupy the top spots in successive years. Numerous roads around the country are notorious for accidents, including truck collisions. Another cause could be bad weather. While often winter weather is thought to be more dangerous, only one of these five states, Pennsylvania, and northern California, are areas that have significant annual snowfall. The other three states and southern California are generally warm-weather states. They experience terrible rain storms, including hurricanes, so some of these fatal truck accidents may be weather related. One other reason is an unsafe driver.

Often in accidents involving large trucks and cars, the driver of the smaller vehicle committed the action that caused the casualties. Some car drivers do dangerous maneuvers near truck drivers, which results in fatal accidents. They drive too close to trucks, sometimes pulling into their lane without sufficient headway. Some move into the space to the right of a car when it makes a wide right turn. Often these drivers believe they have the skill to get by the slower-moving truck. While these individual state fatality numbers may not seem high, there are more than one hundred thousand injuries yearly due to truck accidents. This illustrates the genuine danger of truck accidents in the US.

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents the first, and most important, action is to prove fault. The fault is demonstrated when examining if the pedestrian or driver have been careless or negligible, and/or have violated the rules of conduct in the maintenance, ownership, use or operation of the vehicle.

In most cases that involve motor vehicle accidents, it is relatively simple and quick to prove who is at fault. For example, an accident in which a traffic rule has been clearly violated such as failing to stop at a red light. On the other hand, there can be situations where it is not as straight forward to demonstrate which party is at fault and, in these instances, it can be more challenging to hold the negligible party liable. This kind of situation may occur when two cars attempt to access the same lane, simultaneously. In this scenario, it is critical to determine which party was careless or almost negligible.accident injury lawyers

In order for a party to be held liable, their negligence in the matter must be proven and shown to be the cause of the accident in question.
For negligence to be proven, the victim needs to demonstrate that the other party (driver or pedestrian), had a reasonable duty to exercise caution; that they failed their duty to exercise reasonable caution; and also that their failure of executing this reasonable caution is what caused the harm to the other party. Alternatively, if the victim involved in the motor vehicle accident has, in any way, contributed to the accident by way of a negligent action(s) of his or her own then it is more difficult to discern liability. In these circumstances, the victim’s compensation for injuries or damages will be limited or even barred.
There are many kinds of motor vehicle accidents that may warrant compensation for damages and/or injuries. Some examples include:

1. Car Accidents
2. Bus Accidents
3. Truck Accidents
4. Bicycle Accidents
5. Motorcycle Accidents
6. ATV Accidents
7. Boat Accidents
8. Pedestrian Accidents

The parties that can be held liable in a motor vehicle accident depend upon the type of vehicle involved. As an example, a victim that is involved in a motor vehicle accident with a truck can hold liable, and seek compensation and / or damages from, the driver for his action(s) or lack, thereof. Additionally, the victim can also hold the owner of the truck, the company whom the driver leased the truck from, and even the manufacturer of the truck liable. The manufacturer of the truck can be held liable for the accident if it was a direct result of faulty vehicle parts, for instance, defective equipment such as tires or breaks.
Compensation as a result of damage from a motor vehicle accident can be pursued through a number of different avenues. For example, as a victim of a motor vehicle accident, you can seek compensation for direct damage to property, destruction of property and loss of use of the property. You may also be entitled to further compensation for direct injuries, cost of hospitalization or medical expenses, loss of employment, disability, pain and suffering and even loss of consortium.personal injury law
