Causes of Truck Accidents
Due to their size, commercial trucks can cause catastrophic injuries and property damage. To help ensure safety on the roads, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) maintains specific guidelines for trucks, trucking companies, and manufacturers. These guidelines cover everything from weight limits to driving time limits. A failure to follow these rules can lead to a serious accident.
Some potential causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue (exceeding hours limits)
- Exceeding weight limits
- Failure to train drivers
- Improper loading
- Speeding or failing to obey other traffic laws
- Driving while intoxicated
- Distracted driving (e.g., texting, eating)
- Defective truck parts
Depending on the cause of the accident, numerous parties may be liable. If, for example, an untrained driver causes an accident, the trucking company might be legally at fault for failing to train their employee. If, on the other hand, a truck has defective parts, the manufacturer may be to blame. Our attorneys can evaluate the specifics of your situation to determine who was at fault, then hold them accountable.
Types of Damages Awarded
Our mission is to recover all of the costs associated with the accident. To that end, there are several types of damages we may pursue:
- Medical expenses (e.g., hospital bills, medications, therapy)
- Property damage
- Lost income if you can no longer go to work

- Funeral expenses (in the event of a wrongful death)
