What Caused the Accident that Injured You?

There can be many factors that contribute to or cause a truck accident. These factors include:

  • Distracted driving: Was the truck driver talking on a cell phone, sending emails, or using other means of communication rather than being attentive to the road?
  • Truck driver fatigue: Was the truck driver fatigued from too many hours on the road without proper rest breaks?
  • Negligent hiring of truck drivers: Did the trucking company fail to verify driving history, accident history, or driver credentials?
  • Truck driver negligence: Was the driver speeding, taking wide turns, driving recklessly, drinking, sleeping, or utilizing stay-awake drugs or other illegal substances?
  • Negligent truck maintenance: Did defective brakes, poorly maintained tires, or other improperly maintained equipment cause the accident?
  • Defective products: Did defective brakes, poor hydraulics, defective tires, or other defective equipment cause the accident?
  • Other contributory factors: Did improper load balancing, overweight load, blind spots, sudden lane changes, negligent road maintenance, or other causes lead to the jackknife, rollover, or other truck accident?

For truck accidents of all kinds, we can use our experience in accident investigation to evaluate these factors.
