Causes of Truck Accidents
As Missouri commercial trucking injury attorneys, we have found that the vast majority of trucking accidents are caused by truck driver negligence. These negligent actions can result in serious injuries, including head, brain, and spinal cord injuries. These negligent actions can also result in death. Whether you have sustained a serious injury, or have lost a loved one in a fatal trucking accident, you can trust our attorneys will seek fair compensation on your behalf. We are highly skilled at identifying the causes of truck accidents. These causes can include:
- Driving too fast for road/weather conditions
- Improper truck maintenance
- Negligent hiring practices by trucking companies
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
We work with accident reconstruction experts and investigators who arrive on the scene as soon as possible. With their assistance, we can analyze the evidence - including the truck's black box and logbooks - to ascertain the cause of the accident. Whether the driver had not stopped to sleep per federal regulations, or had no properly inspected the truck before taking off with a load, we can identify how the accident happened.
