Uncovering The Cause Of Your Trucking Accident
Trucking accidents can be much more complex events than most other motor vehicle accidents. This is due to the fact that there are so many different parties that have some degree of control over the truck, what the truck is doing and the condition of the truck.
This means that an effective case for compensation needs to work through a long list of potential causes to ensure that all responsible parties are being held accountable for the lapses that caused the accident.
Thorough Investigation Is The Key
A thorough investigation is required to sort through the large number of facts and pieces of evidence. Most trucks today have black boxes that record driving data. That information can be incredibly useful. But, there are many other sources of information ranging from driver logs and maintenance logs to drug tests and disciplinary records.
Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Driver fatigue (being forced to drive too long)
- Distracted driving (using a cellphone, texting, watching videos while driving)
- Improper loading/overloading
- Defective parts
- Driving drunk or on drugs
- Defective roadway
