Causes of Truck Accidents

Federal and state regulations govern the operation and maintenance of large commercial trucks. When we handle truck accident cases, our thorough investigations often uncover evidence that shows the truck driver or trucking company was in violation of trucking regulations.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Faulty truck maintenance
  • Trucking company negligence such as faulty hiring practices, failure to perform background checks, failure to administer drug tests

Our attorneys have the skill and experience to go up against the trucking companies and the insurance companies that represent them. We are skilled litigators who know how to obtain results for our clients through negotiation when possible, through litigation when necessary.
