Truck Accident Causes

Truck Accident CausesOne of the reasons trucking accident cases are so complex is that there can be many liable parties involved. Depending on the specifics of the accident, there may be negligence by the driver, trucking company, maintenance company, truck manufacturers and others.

Many Parties May Be Responsible For A Truck Accident

The causes of truck accidents are too numerous to name. However, a few of the most common causes include:

  • Driver fatigue/too many hours on the road
  • Negligent maintenance of the vehicle
  • Defective vehicle components
  • Worn tires or brakes
  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Unsafe roadways
  • Negligent hiring procedures
  • Improper cargo securement
  • Overloaded trucks

It is critical to contact a lawyer immediately so we can secure the truck and preserve evidence. The trucking company will send its accident response team within 24 hours to view the scene and take the truck away. We need to begin our investigation as soon as possible before the evidence disappears.

We will determine the cause of the accident and pursue compensation from all liable parties to cover losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
