Any road traffic accident can be terrifying, but this is much more the case if you have been involved in an accident with a lorry. Due to a lorry’s weight and size, any impact is likely to be more severe and the damage sustained more significant.
Fatal accident compensation.
If a close family member was killed in an accident with a lorry and it can be shown the other driver was to blame, then you may be entitled to compensation for their death.
Causes of collisions with HGVs.
Travelling too close to the rear of a car and colliding with the back when the car driver applies the breaks.
Failure to look properly when manoeuvring.
Attempting a manoeuvre without checking for the presence of other vehicles. Lorries have blind spots which the driver should pay close attention to.
Falling asleep at the wheel.
Driving when over tired or after taking over the counter medications which cause drowsiness, can lead to the driver falling asleep and crashing.
Use of mobiles.
The illegal use of hand held mobile phones whilst driving can cause lapses in concentration leading to accidents.
Failure to maintain a lorry or HGV to a minimum standard, such as not changing worn tyres.
Poor vehicle loading.
The poor stacking or loading of a vehicle increases the risk of load shedding into the path of other vehicles.
