Types of Truck Accidents in Virginia

Truck accidents are not exclusive to 18-wheelers found on highways. Some trucks that you might see involved in accidents include:

  • Dump trucks
  • Moving trucks
  • Tow trucks
  • Large trucks with flammable liquids 
  • Cement trucks 
  • Horse trailers hauled by semis 
  • Farming trucks 
  • Refrigerated 18-wheelers 

Some of these trucks are specific to certain geographic areas. Many of these trucks are on interstates and highways, and others are seen on residential roads and side streets. Our Virginia truck accident lawyer handles various truck accident cases. 

Elements of Truck Accident Investigations 

Investigating how the crash occurred is among the most vital steps we will take when handling your case. It is incumbent upon victims to prove that a negligent party caused their injuries. One of the first steps in an investigation is to determine whose negligence contributed to the collision. This can include:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company 
  • Mechanic
  • Manufacturer 
  • Truck owner 

Sometimes multiple parties on this list are responsible for the collision. The more parties at fault, the more independent investigations may occur. Other aspects of a truck accident investigation include:

  • Obtaining a police report 
  • Going to the scene to collect evidence 
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Inspecting the vehicles involved
  • Reviewing medical records 
  • Looking at the truck driver and company records 

A thorough investigation will significantly impact your injury claim. Our Virginia truck accident lawyer has years of experience investigating these cases. 

Potential Damages From Truck Accidents 

After our Virginia truck accident attorney completes their investigation, they will also calculate damages that apply to your case. This process will take negotiation skills and legal knowledge. Victims can recover damages such as:

  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Medical bills related to the crash
  • Physical therapy expenses 
  • Ambulance and hospital bills 
  • Lost wages 
  • Vehicle and property damage 
  • Ongoing or specialized care 
  • Pain and suffering 

Many other damages can apply to your case. Surviving families will have different processes and damages they can seek when a loved one dies. Discuss your circumstances with a Virginia truck accident attorney.
