Why Trucking Accident Cases Are So Much More Challenging
Truck accidents are different from other types of car accident cases. They’re much more complex. Multiple parties may be at fault, including:
- The truck driver
- The driver’s employer
- The dispatcher
- The shipper
- The truck mechanic or maintenance company
- The truck or parts manufacturer
Pinpointing who is at fault depends on a thorough investigation. It’s often necessary to dig deep to get to the root cause of the accident, which might include:
- Driver fatigue
- Intoxicated driving
- Negligent hiring practices on the part of the trucking company
- Pressure to falsify logbooks and drive longer hours than allowed under federal law
- Driver distraction
- Unbalanced loads
