Truck accidents can happen for any reason. But in many cases, many truck accidents can be traced back to certain common causes. Some of the most common reasons why truck accidents happen include:
- Impaired truck drivers
- Texting truckers
- Overloaded trucks
- Tired truck drivers
There's no excuse for any of the above listed causes of accidents. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, an arm of the Department of Transportation that regulates the interstate trucking industry, has "hours-of-service rules" that spell out how long drivers can operate at one time. Truck companies face pressure to deliver their goods quickly and may put pressure on their drivers to ignore those rules.
We are well versed in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations or FMCSR and often cite them while representing clients in truck accident cases.
We investigate truck accidents to look for signs of negligence, and take legal action in an effort to preserve evidence owned by truck companies. We regularly review all related documentation, such as accident reports, medical records and safety records. In addition, our investigation often includes searching for witnesses and interviewing them.
