What Are Common Causes Of Truck Accidents?

Our attorneys set to work immediately investigating the truck accident cause. Remember, the sooner you enlist help from our firm, the better. The trucking company will have their insurance adjusters on the scene soon after the accident. They may also "misplace" evidence that is crucial to your injury claim. Our firm works efficiently, ensuring crucial evidence is preserved. We work with accident reconstruction experts whenever necessary to determine the cause of the truck accident. In our experience, we have found that common causes of truck accidents include the following:

  • Driver fatigue/driving over allowed hours of service
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Unsecured load/shifting loads
  • Driver under influence of drugs and/or alcohol
