Dangerous Driver Compensation System
Dangerous Driver Compensation System Increases Odds of Big Rig Accidents
Over the course of the past decade, the number of commercial semi-trucks
pounding U.S. roadways has increased significantly. The Doan Law Firm,
and its truck accident injury legal team, has been called upon with ever-increasing
frequency to fight for justice for people like you injured in big rig
accidents. You can find out more about our legal team by calling (800) 349-0000.
The amount of revenue generated by the over-the-road trucking industry
has doubled in about the past 10 years and is over $1.2 trillion annually.
With the increase in semis operating on public streets, the number of
accidents causing injuries and fatalities continues to climb as well.
An evermore troublesome underlying cause of semi-truck accidents in the
United States in recent years is the dangerous driver compensation system
put in place by truck owners and cartage companies in this day and age.
If you suspect that an underlying cause of the truck accident that caused
your injuries may be the dangerous driver compensation system, contact
a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm today, at (800)349-0000,
to get a free case evaluation.
Overview of the Dangerous Driver Compensation System
Trucking companies have implemented compensation systems in which a rig
operator makes more money based on completing shipping runs faster. This
has resulted in a dangerous situation in which commercial truck drivers
will speed and forgo sleep in order to complete a route in the shortest
amount of time possible.
Speeding and fatigue are two of the most common underlying reasons for
commercial semi-truck accidents in the United States. Indeed, upwards
to 50 percent of semi-truck accidents in the country on any given year
occur because a rig driver is either speeding or fatigued.
Fighting for Proper Compensation in a Truck Accident Injury Case
A truck accident lawyer from our legal team will fight tirelessly to obtain
the compensation you must have in your case. Each case is different. With
that understood, there are certain types of losses, damages, and injuries
that result in compensation in a truck accident injury case:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- property damage and loss
- lost income
A truck accident injury lawyer from our firm will also fight to ensure
that you obtain suitable compensation for future losses as well. In a
commercial truck accident case, you are very likely to continue to sustain
losses into the future.
If you are like most individuals injured in an 18-wheeler accident, your
medical care will continue into the future. You will be faced with physical
therapy and occupational therapy.
You may not be able to return to work any time soon. In fact, you may never
be able to resume the type of work you enjoyed before the fateful and
life-altering commercial truck accident.
Pain may not abate. You may endure emotional distress for an extended period of time.
All of this represents the types of losses, injuries, and damages that
require compensation. Our legal team does not surrender. We fight until
you receive justice and the financial recovery you deserve.
