Who Is Responsible for Truck Accidents?
Truck accident cases tend to be a bit more complex than other types of motor vehicle accidents. The reason for this has to do with the fact that these vehicles are generally used for commercial purposes and, as such, there may be any number of liable parties. Depending on the unique circumstances of a given accident, anyone from the truck driver to the company that leases the vehicle to the manufacturer of a tractor-trailer part may be partially or wholly at fault for the accident. In some cases, more than one party may be responsible.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Many factors can lead to a truck accident. Some of the most common causes include:
- Driver inattention
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs
- Driver error
- Fatigued driving
- Unsafe lane changes or turns
- Unrealistic driving schedules
- Insufficient training
- Unsafe driver quotas
- Overloaded trucks
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Defective parts
- Equipment failure
These are just some examples of how truck accidents can be attributed to negligence. If you believe that your accident was caused by someone else’s careless or reckless behavior, reach out to our firm today to schedule a free case evaluation.
