What May Cause A Trucking Accident?
Many factors can cause an auto accident, but truck drivers deal with a host of additional challenges on the road. Although state and federal regulations try to limit hours for drivers, companies still often push their drivers to work beyond their limits. Long hours also mean drivers may try to keep driving while they eat, talk or text on the phone or to drive when they are exhausted.
These factors would be bad enough in a car but driving a large commercial vehicle like a tractor-trailer is demanding and difficult. They have a wider turning range, longer stopping distances and not much maneuverability. All these factors increase the likelihood of making a mistake on the road and causing an accident.
Addressing The Legal Complexities
Accidents involving any commercial vehicle include complicated issues of who is liable for making payment after an accident. These cases can involve several parties, including, but not limited to:
- The driver
- The driver’s employer
- The company that loaded the goods on the truck
- The company that hired the trucking company
- Any manufacturer of faulty parts that could have contributed to the accident
- Insurance companies for the different parties
As you can see, many different parties may try to point fingers at one another. When we build your case, we will get to the bottom of the true cause of the accident and hold the correct parties accountable.
