Determining Truck Accident Causes and Responsibility

Because of its sheer size and weight, coupled with speed, there are many factors that could cause the truck to rollover, or collide with other trucks, passenger vehicles, pedestrians or stationary objects. Depending on what caused the accident, our truck accident attorneys will determine who will be held liable for your injuries.

The causes can be attributed to the truck driver’s negligence and trucking company:

  • Fatigue and stress due to long hours
  • Speeding due to strict imposition of delivery deadlines
  • Jackknifing due to reckless braking or turning
  • Highway hypnosis
  • Substance abuse
  • Distracted driving
  • Negligence in inspections and maintenance
  • Improper loading of cargo

In the past, truck manufacturers have also been held responsible for:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Improper repairs

In some cases, other vehicle drivers may be to blame for:

The local, state or federal government entities may also be held liable for:

  • Poor road design and construction
  • Improper maintenance of roads and highways
  • Failure to install cautionary systems that could prevent an accident, for e.g.: traffic lights, street lights, or speed limits, and protect against extreme weather conditions
