Common Examples of Truck Accident Negligence
Because large commercial trucks can pose such a threat to other cars on
the road, operating, maintaining, and repairing them are subject to strict
safety regulations. While victims in these cases usually assume that the
driver themselves is responsible for the crash, many cases involve more
significant contributing factors that can include the condition of the
truck and the business practices of the transport company.
Common instances of negligence in truck accidents include:
- Impaired driving (drugs, fatigue, alcohol, etc.)
- Schedules and deadlines too demanding on drivers (causing fatigue)
- Inexperienced/untrained drivers
- Improper loading of the vehicle
- Minimal or non-existent maintenance of the truck and trailer
- Defective manufacturing of trucking equipment
The Diligence Needed to Pursue Justice
In these cases, drivers, shipping companies, manufacturers, and owners
of the actual truck or trailer may all be held accountable for conditions
that led to a dangerous accident. At Jones & Swanson, we are well-versed
in the investigation needed to determine just who is liable in these circumstances
and how to aggressively pursue the compensation our clients deserve--
even if that means taking on the larger corporate entities.
