Winning Your Truck Accident Case

Clients often ask us if they have a truck accident case. To receive compensation, you must prove:

  1. Duty of care: A duty of care is usually present. Truck drivers and trucking companies have a duty of care to others on the roads.
  2. Breach of duty: Breach of the duty of care is based on negligence. Truckers are held to high standards as commercial drivers operating large vehicles on public roads. They are evaluated based on reasonable standards of care and caution.
  3. Causation: Negligence, or another type of legal fault, must be the cause of the accident and your injury.
  4. Damages: Damages are the compensation you deserve. It’s based on your personal losses, both economically and personally, that result from the accident.

To make a claim for compensation, you must prove each element, including the amount you deserve as damages. Driving error, poor driving skills, or other negligence may amount to a breach of duty that gives you the right to compensation.

When McCall Law is your truck accident lawyer, it’s our job to understand legal fault and prove the elements of your claim.

Types of Truck Accident Cases We Handle

Speeding, too fast for conditions

A truck driver must control their vehicle. A large, heavy vehicle needs extra distance to come to a stop. Truck drivers must follow speed limits and drive at the appropriate speed for road conditions.

Lane change, lane use

Trucks have large blind spots. They may change lanes only when they have a path free from other vehicles to do so safely. When lane change or lane use contributes to an accident, a victim may claim compensation.


A jackknife accident occurs when a truck loses control of its trailer. The cab folds to the side, and the trailer can slide out of control. There are several possible underlying causes, including speeding, sudden vehicle movements, and poor vehicle maintenance.

Truck rollover

A truck rollover may be the result of speed, driver inattention, an error in judgment, or an uneven load. A truck rollover may result in a collision with other vehicles, a cargo spill, and environmental hazards. The result may be physical injuries for victims and economic loss.

Wide turn

Sometimes, a truck must swing wide to execute a turn. If a driver lacks the skill to make the turn safely, or they have a judgment error, they may strike a vehicle in an intersection. Truck drivers must turn in a safe manner. They should always signal their intention to turn.

Driver skill

A truck handles differently than a passenger vehicle. Drivers should have the appropriate skill to operate a truck. Lack of ability may result in a loss of control, a runaway truck, or running off the road.

Drunk driving

The drunk driving standards for commercial operators are more stringent than they are for other drivers. Rather than the .08 BAC standard that applies to all drivers, there is a .04 BAC standard for commercial operators. Drunk driving in a large, heavy vehicle is especially dangerous. Harm to victims can be great.

Employee management practices

Many truck drivers work for trucking companies. These companies control the hiring, management, and termination of employees. They may hire or retain unqualified drivers. They may fail to train or supervise them properly. Our team investigates employee management practices to see if they contributed to the collision.

Commercial regulations

Trucking companies must follow a long list of federal and state regulations. They must equip their vehicles with mirrors and lights as the law requires. They must inspect their vehicles before use and perform needed maintenance. Our team understands trucking regulations. When failing to follow commercial regulations may have played a role in the accident, we investigate for you.

Vehicle malfunction or defect

When a truck malfunctions, it can create a hazardous situation. A manufacturing defect can cause a vehicle to react in an unpredictable way. Similarly, a design defect can cause an accident, or it can cause an accident to be more serious.

Damages for Trucking Accidents

Examples of compensation you may receive for a trucking accident:

  • Emergency medical bills: Diagnostic testing, surgery, emergency care, ambulance service
  • Medical care: Treatment, doctor and nursing care, physical therapy
  • Mental health: Injuries, treatment, and related suffering
  • Other medical expenses: Prescriptions, medical equipment, supplies, and travel
  • Lost income: Your immediate income loss, loss of benefits, and long-term career impact
  • Other financial losses: Replacement household services and family care expenses
  • Pain and suffering: The physical pain associated with being in a truck accident
  • Disability and disfigurement: Lifestyle changes and limitations caused by the accident
  • Emotional anguish: The emotional suffering of the accident and your losses
  • Property damage: Your vehicle and other damage to personal property
  • Punitive damages: A separate legal standard applies, and punitive damages must be prayed for in the complaint. Punitive damages punish and deter willful, wanton, or reckless conduct
  • Wrongful death compensation: Families may claim a range of compensation following the loss of a family member

Common truck accident injuries include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, soft tissue damage, scars, paralysis, and disfigurement. You may have significant mental health injuries, including anxiety, PTSD, flashbacks, and depression. Physical and mental health injuries should be fairly compensated based on the legal fault of the party or parties responsible for the collision.

When a truck accident occurs, victims often measure their recovery in months or years. They may be impacted for a lifetime. Damages may include future financial expenses and the long-term emotional and mental impact. As your lawyer, McCall Law ensures your claim is complete.
