Causes of Truck Accidents in Maryland

Truck drivers have a grueling job that requires them to meet the demands of their employers. There are a number of factors that can be taken into consideration when it comes to determining the cause of your accident. Some of the most common factors that cause truck accidents in Maryland include the following:

  • Poor visibility because of large blind spots
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drowsy driving due to long hours, up to 14 hours per day
  • Using a cell phone while driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to brake in time, as trucks need up to 2 football fields in length to come to a full stop
  • Mechanical issues that were not attended to

Recovering Compensation After an Accident

If you have been seriously injured in a truck accident, you may be entitled to recover significant compensation for the economic and noneconomic burdens caused by your accident. Often, individuals who have been injured in an accident can recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Maryland Statute of Limitations

In the state of Maryland, anyone who wishes to take legal action for a personal injury matter must do so within the predetermined statute of limitations. This simply acts as a deadline by which you are required to file your claim. If you wish to take legal action against the truck driver that hit you, you must do so within three years of the date of the accident so you don’t lose the opportunity to recover compensation that can help offset some of the physical, emotional, and financial burdens caused by your accident.
