Truck accidents can be caused by numerous factors, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Unbalanced load
- Faulty safety equipment
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Tire blowouts
- Improper lane change
- Failure to leave a proper stopping distance
While there are several laws and regulations designed to ensure the safety of those on the road, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to bend the rules to deliver their loads on schedule. Following a truck accident, it is imperative that you seek legal guidance immediately. Typically, the trucking company will move quickly to protect their driver and begin protecting their case. You need the same experience and tenacity on your side.
