What Are Lane Change Accidents and How do They Occur?
Lane change accidents involving large trucks can occur suddenly and be extremely frightening and dangerous. Unfortunately, lane change accidents are common in the United States and occur all over the country on big highways and even rural country roads. At Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we’ve seen many lane change trucking accidents over the years, and more times than not, they are caused by some type of driver negligence.
Some of the most common causes of lane change accidents involving trucks in Rhode Island include:
- Drivers failing to use turn signals when they turn or change lanes.
- Drivers failing to check their blind spots before changing lanes.
- Aggressive driving behaviors, such as racing and weaving through traffic.
- Distracted drivers
- Merging in front of other cars
- Underestimating the speed of other drivers on the road
- Poor weather or road conditions
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, illicit drugs, or medications with side-effects
- Fatigue causing poor decisions
Lane change accidents with large trucks can cause all types of injuries, some of them serious and potentially life-altering. Below are some of the most common injuries people suffer from lane change accidents with trucks:
- Broken and bruised bones
- Traumatic brain injuries and other injuries to the head
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Paralysis and partial paralysis
- Soft tissue injuries
- Burns and lacerations
- Crush injuries
- Wrongful death
Because being in an accident with a large truck be such a terrifying experience, people who are injured often suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after lane change accidents as well. PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can make accomplishing daily tasks difficult.

Should I Hire an Attorney?
There are many reasons hiring a personal injury attorney after a lane change accident is a good idea. Besides helping you to file your claim on time, fill out paperwork accurately, and gather documents to build your best case, an experienced truck accident attorney in Warwick understands how to negotiate a fair claim on your behalf.
Often, people who decide to file a claim on their own or negotiate on their own behalf get stuck with low-ball offers from the insurance company. After all, you can expect that the trucker’s insurance company will be out to save their company money, not to help you. That’s why it’s best to have an experienced Warwick personal injury on your team to do the negotiating.
