Causes of Truck Accidents
There are many potential causes of truck accidents. Some of the most common include:
- Inadequate truck driver training
- Unrealistic schedules that force truck drivers to remain on the road longer than the hours of service limitations mandated by law
- Truck driver fatigue
- Improperly maintained trucks
- Overloaded trucks
- Unbalanced truck loads
- Adverse weather conditions
- Aggressive or reckless driving by truck driver
- Hours of service violations
A Complex Area of Law
Truck accidents are not like typical motor vehicle accidents. There are many federal and state trucking regulations which apply to these cases. Your Long Island truck accident lawyer must have a strong understanding of these laws in order to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
There are also multiple parties which may be held liable for your truck accident injuries, including:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Truck manufacturer
- The driver of another vehicle that was responsible for the truck accident
Your truck accident lawyer must be able to evaluate the evidence in order to determine which parties are responsible for your damages. In some cases, more than one party may have been at fault, making your case even more complex.
