Truck Accident Negligence
Counsel from Proven Marietta Truck Accident Lawyers
When a dangerous road accident occurs between two cars, that accident’s causes tend to be pretty apparent: someone was speeding. A driver was distracted. Reckless driving occurred. These elements can also be the cause of commercial truck accidents, but the details of sorting out who is liable for any injuries may not be as cut and dry. Suppose you have been hurt in a commercial truck accident. In that case, you may not be aware of the federal safety regulations instituted to make these massive vehicles safer on the road.

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.
Typical 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.
