Common Causes of Truck Driver Error Accidents in Austin, TX

Truck drivers make mistakes and errors that lead to devastating truck crashes. In some cases, their mistakes are nothing more than lapses in judgment. In other cases, truck driver error is intentional wrongdoing.

Common causes of truck accidents due to truck driver error include:

Trucking companies that hire inexperienced truck drivers increase the risk of truck accidents. Inexperienced or poorly trained truck drivers are more likely to make errors that seasoned truck drivers might not make.

Damages Recoverable After a Truck Driver Error Accident

Because Texas is an at-fault state for accident claims, you must prove that the truck driver’s error directly and proximately caused the accident to recover damages. For instance, suppose a truck driver was speeding. Speeding in itself does not always result in a truck accident.

However, the truck driver’s speed drastically reduced the stopping distance. Therefore, the truck driver could not stop before striking a car stopped in congested traffic. The truck driver’s error was a direct and proximate cause of the truck accident.

When you prove the elements of a negligence claim, you can recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages. These damages include, but are not limited to:

  • Reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses, including personal care, assistance with household chores, and travel to and from medical appointments
  • Reimbursement for loss of wages, benefits, and other income
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Future lost wages and a decrease in earning capacity
  • Permanent impairments and disabilities
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of quality of life and enjoyment of life
  • Reimbursement for the cost of diagnosing and treating injuries, including ongoing medical bills and expenses

A victim might also receive punitive damages in some truck accident cases. Punitive damages “punish” a defendant in a personal injury lawsuit for grossly negligent conduct—for instance, a truck driver who causes a DUI accident.

The amount you receive for a truck driver error accident claim depends on many factors. The strength of your evidence, the severity of your injuries, contributory fault, and whether you hire an experienced Austin truck accident attorney are a few factors that can impact the outcome of your case.
