What are Some of the Common Causes of a Truck Accident?

April 23rd, 2013 by Michael Guajardo

There are usually several factors that lead to a truck wreck. There are usually two issues to analyze-the truck driver’s conduct and the trucking company’s conduct. As for the truck driver, factors such as fatigue, drugs, inexperience or lack of training are typical causes of wrecks. As for the company, it’s usually a systems failure that puts the truck driver in a position to cause a wreck. Those system failures include hiring unqualified drivers, failing to properly train, failing to properly supervise, pushing drivers too hard and requiring them to drive too long and poor maintenance of equipment. Because of the complexity of these factors, you must hire a lawyer who is experienced in this type of litigation.
