Causes of Commercial Truck; 18-Wheeler Accidents
Many commercial truck accidents are caused by driver negligence. Some of the most common reasons for big truck accidents include:
- Violation of hours and service rules, causing fatigued or dangerous driving
- Violation of traffic rules, such as speeding, failing to yield or not keeping a proper lookout
- Distracted driving
- Driving impaired by alcohol, drugs, prescription medications or over-the-counter sleep aids
- Improper loading
- Improper maintenance or skipping required inspections
- Mechanical defects of the truck or its components
The Big Truck Lawyers at The Graham Firm can conduct a thorough investigation into the potential causes of your accident and work to hold the at-fault parties responsible for your injuries.
Who Is Responsible for Truck Accidents?
18-wheeler accidents are often more complicated because they may involve multiple parties who share the responsibility for the accident. During the investigation of an accident involving a big truck, we determine which of the following parties could be responsible for your injuries:
- Truck company
- Truck driver
- Truck owner
- Leasing company owner
- The company that leases the trailer
- The broker that hired the trucking company
- The company responsible for loading the cargo
- Manufacturer of the truck, trailer or components of the truck
- Third-party drivers who contributed to the accident
Our Atlanta truck accident attorneys have experience handling complex truck accident cases and understand how to clarify which party may or may not be liable for your injuries.
