When a truck driver is impaired by alcohol, it can be very difficult to predict how their intoxication may affect them. Some drivers will be compelled to drive more aggressively, possibly speeding, while other drivers may be more cautious.
Accidents frequently occur at the least expected times, usually when a drunk driver commits some kind of action that affects another nearby motor vehicle. In general, the most common kinds of truck accidents involving drunk drivers include, but are not limited to:
A commercial truck driver who is drunk will likely be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). This is a criminal case totally unrelated to your own civil action, which means that a driver who is not convicted in a criminal court can still be be held liable in a civil court.
A good example is the distinction would be the case of former pro football star O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted of murder in the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman but was found liable for their wrongful deaths. He was ordered to pay $8.5 million in compensatory damages and $25 million in punitive damages to the families.

Drunk driving truck crashes frequently occur very suddenly with no opportunity for victims to brace themselves or take any sort of protective measures.
Some of the most common kinds of injuries people sustain include, but are not limited to:
It is certainly possible that some people could be killed in a drunk driving truck accident. The family members of the person killed can usually file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.
You should avoid speaking to an insurance company after your truck accident. Always wait until you have an attorney so they can handle these phone calls on your behalf.
