Common Truck Accident Reasons

Accidents with large commercial trucks can cause devastating damage and injuries. If the truck driver, trucking company, or other related party was at fault for the accident, that party should be held responsible for their negligent actions. If you are a truck accident victim, you need to make sure you bring a legal claim against the correct party to make sure you can properly recover for your losses. Furthermore, in some situations, more than one party may share fault in causing a truck accident. In those scenarios, victims want to ensure they bring claims against all potentially liable parties in order to receive the maximum compensation possible. The experienced Coweta County truck accident attorneys at Shane Smith Law know how to determine fault in sometimes complicated truck accident cases.

There are many potential causes of truck accidents, and the cause of your particular accident may not be readily apparent. Moreover, many times the different parties will point fingers at each other and will not admit fault. For this reason, experts often must reconstruct the accident and analyze the scene and the vehicles involved in order to determine the underlying cause of the accident.

Some common ruck accident reasons include:

  • Violating traffic laws
  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Aggressive driving
  • Improper lane changes
  • Negligent supervision of drivers
  • Other driver error
  • Adverse road conditions
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Improper cargo loading
  • Truck defect or malfunction
  • Failure to inspect the truck
  • Negligent hiring

These are only some of the potential causes of commercial truck accidents.
