Because of their size and weight, commercial trucks are capable of causing far more devastating accidents than passenger vehicles. Truck accidents often involve multiple vehicles and result in catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death. Both federal and state trucking regulations play a significant role in how trucking accident cases are approached, and several different companies might be involved in a single claim. For all of these reasons and more, it is important to have an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side to ensure you and your family receive the compensation you need to recover.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
Out of these, driver fatigue is the leading cause of truck accidents. However, determining that fatigue was a factor in your accident may not be enough. For example, the fatigue might have been caused by a trucking company that placed an unrealistic scheduling demand on a driver, which would make the company itself liable for accident damages.
