Truck Accidents Caused by a Failure to Signal

Though it seems obvious enough, truck drivers are legally obligated to properly use their turn signals just like every other driver on the road. Nonetheless, serious accidents caused by the failure to follow such a basic aspect of driver safety still occur with disturbing regularity. Now that you or a loved one has been hit by truck driver who failed to properly signal their intentions, you should consider what legal action you may now be eligible to take against the responsible party in order to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.

Dangers Associated with Improperly Use of Signals

The signals on any vehicle represent a critical and basic form of communication on the road. Bearing that in mind, there would be no reason for you to expect that a truck driver would be changing lanes if he or she never indicated that with the truck’s blinkers. Now that you may have been injured by a driver who failed to properly signal his or her intentions, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages with a personal injury claim:

  • The full cost of any medical care you now require
  • Any amount of income you lost during recovery
  • Any property damage sustained in the accident
