Uncovering What Caused Your Truck Accident

Last updated on April 30, 2024

The nature of trucking accidents is incredibly complex. Most accidents have numerous factors at play. Discovering the root cause or causes is not easy. Whatever the circumstances of your crash, it is crucial that you have attorneys with experience investigating the cause of truck accidents.

The Common Causes Of Truck Crashes

Every accident has its own unique factors. Some of the most common issues that contribute to semi-truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Lack of experience
  • Inadequate background checks
  • Pressure from trucking companies
  • Malfunctioning or defective parts
  • Improper maintenance
  • Improper training
  • Improper cargo loading

When two or more of these factors are present in the same crash, the discovery process becomes even more difficult. Our team of lawyers can zero in on the causal factors. We may also refer to our roster of outside experts such as accident reconstructionists, forensic analysts and other resources to help us build your case.
