Understanding the cause of a truck accident is the first step in building an effective claim against the responsible party. When the cause of an accident involves driver negligence, trucking company negligence or vehicle safety concerns, it is important for accident victims to speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. When another person or party's negligence causes an accident, the accident victim or victims may be entitled to significant compensation.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Commercial trucking is federally regulated through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Truck drivers and trucking companies must adhere to a strict set of rules and regulations applying to everything from hours of driver service to truck maintenance. These regulations are intended to increase safety among commercial truck operators. But even with these regulations in place, accidents still occur.

Attorney Paul Englander represents clients who have been injured in truck accidents caused by the following:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving/impaired driving/prescription drug use
  • Distracted driving (cell phone use, texting while driving)
  • Driver error
  • Unqualified drivers/improperly trained drivers
  • Speeding/aggressive driving
  • Improperly maintained vehicle
  • Improperly secured loads
  • Unsafe equipment
  • Tire blowouts
  • Jackknifing
