Identifying the Cause of a Truck Accident

Identifying the cause of a truck accident is an important part of handling any subsequent claim. Fault must be accurately determined, so the party (or parties) who are to blame can be held responsible for medical bills, lost earnings, and other injuries or losses the injured party has experienced. Our team works with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to thoroughly investigate each truck accident case.

Potential causes of truck accidents include:

  • Overloaded trucks
  • Improperly balanced truck cargo
  • Unsecured truck loads
  • Truck operator fatigue
  • Hours-of-service violations
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding or driving too fast for current conditions
  • Dangerous roads
  • Defective truck or auto parts
  • Driving while distracted

Who is Held Liable After a Truck Accident?

Unlike a car accident where liability is usually straight forward, several parties could potentially be liable after a truck accident. The trucking company is often found liable since, generally speaking, employers are responsible for their employees while they are at work.

Additionally, it is not uncommon for companies to encourage their drivers to break the trucking regulations driver are required by law to follow. These regulations are instituted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) who set up strict guidelines of how long truckers can be on the road and when they must rest. While these guidelines can be restrictive, their purpose is to prevent as many accidents on the road as possible.

At times the truck driver themselves are held liable, such as in cases where the driver is an independent contractor of the company, rather than an employee or when they were engaging in unlawful behavior, such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If an accident was the result of a mechanical defect or cargo loading error, the truck manufacturer or loading company can be held responsible as well.
