    Compensation claim in Guisborough


    A very common type of accident that happens on the road happens because of something that a tractor trailer driver does. These often will lead to a compensation claim in Guisborough against a tractor trailer. Below are some of the things that can happen to cause these kinds of accidents and why so many claims are brought against the drivers.

    Differences in weight and size can lead to a compensation claim in Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Tractor trailers are some of the biggest vehicles on the road and that means that when an accident happens between these vehicles and smaller ones, it often is devastating. The weight is also a big reason why they take longer to stop than cars or lighter trucks.

    Fatigue can lead to a compensation claim Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Drivers of tractor trailers are often paid per mile rather than hour. For this reason a lot of drivers are going longer than they’re supposed to. This leads to fatigue which in turn reduces their reaction time and often impairs the judgement of drivers. This means that they are more likely to cause accidents.

    Distracted drivers can lead to an injury claim Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Driving a lot of hours often causes a driver to become bored and distracted. Sometimes the driver is going to talk on their mobile phones or with someone who is in the truck with them rather than keeping their eyes on the task at hand. When they become distracted they can cause accidents.

    Bad road conditions can lead to an injury in claim Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Roads that are badly maintained, bad visibility, and bad weather often lead to hazardous road conditions. Dense fog or wet roads often challenge a truck driver’s capability to maintain stability and control.

    Improper distribution of weight can lead to a compensation claim in Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Tractor-trailers are hauling all kinds of loads, with different densities. When those aren’t distributed properly, it can cause the trailer to sway and cause an accident.

    Flow of traffic can lead to an injury claim in Guisborough against a tractor trailer

    Passenger cars and trucks often will aggressively weave through the lanes of traffic, cutting off the big trucks. This causes the trucks to suddenly brake and often results in accidents. This is not always the truck’s fault since they are unable to stop in time when someone cuts them off.
