U-Haul Accidents

Although it should be considered, most people do not think about how devastating U-Haul accidents can be when renting a U-Haul truck; this includes the responsibility involved in driving behind a wheel of a large vehicle.

Naturally, the U-Haul company cannot be excused. As it usually rents out vehicles, however, that should not leave the parking lots.

Personal injury trucking accident attorneys within the state pursue fair and just financial compensation on behalf of individuals involved in these types of accidents.

Attorneys can maximize recovery of damages for clients via identification of involvement of each at-fault party, and direct litigation at parties who are held liable.

Types of Accidents with a U-Haul

The U-Haul corporation, depending on needs of the individual renting, has made many types of trailers, vans, and trucks available to individuals seeking to transport belongings across the state, or to another region.

Many drivers with no experience in towing trailers, or operating large trucks contribute to rental truck accidents due to lack of experience.

The most typical kinds of U-Haul accidents entail the following:

Due to the number of drivers having little to no experience in towing a trailer, they are unable to make necessary corrections when a trailer that is rented begins to lose control or sway. Trailer sway accidents and runaway trailers can be the result.

There is a vast difference in the blind spots most operators become accustomed to when pertaining to blind spots of these large vehicles.

Drivers who lack experience who may not notice certain vehicles in blind spots can result in multi-vehicle accidents throughout movement in heavy traffic into an occupied lane.

Much higher is the center of gravity of a large truck. This can make it much more apt to roll over when operators make movements that are sudden, or make attempts at excessive speeds to take curves.

Rollover accidents can cause critical injuries.

The majority of commercial trucks transport loads that are evenly distributed to prevent any loss of control of the trailer, or collisions, which may be the result of cargo shift.

Truck operators normally check in to weight stations to make certain that trailers are not unevenly loaded or overloaded.

Private renters of trucks are not subject to these types of requirements, and may even load trucks unevenly, which can result in a load that is uneven that can easily cause a collision.

Drivers who lack experience can contribute in and cause U-Haul accidents. However, they are not the only factor under consideration when personal injury trucking accident attorneys determine the likelihood of a legal case.
