Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can be caused by many things from speeding to drug and alcohol abuse. Sometimes drivers push the limits to deliver a load, often depriving themselves of sleep, driving more hours than the law allows, or taking supplements to help them stay awake. This is a dangerous game that can easily lead to driver error.
Other times a truck driver may overload their vehicle or fail to use proper driving maneuvers designed to avoid accidents like rollovers, jackknifing, underride and runaway accidents. Additionally, improper vehicle maintenance or malfunctioning equipment can lead to brake failure, tire blowouts or other problems that lead to serious accidents.
An experienced truck accident attorney can investigate your accident to determine what caused it and what parties may be held liable including the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer or other party. Your attorney will also gather important evidence necessary for your case and advocate on your behalf.
