CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS
When involved in an accident, the sheer size and weight of large commercial trucks will likely cause a devastating accident. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are a result of negligent truck drivers.
Long hours on the road, tight schedules and deadlines, and busy highways can all contribute to a driver failing to put safety first.
Some of the leading causes of truck accidents include:
- Lack of driver training
- Driver fatigue
- Unsecured load
- Poorly maintained truck or trailer
- Reckless driving
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Driver distraction
- Driving under the influence
- Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks
Our dedicated team of New Jersey truck accident lawyers, investigators and support staff will work to gather all of the evidence from your accident in order to determine exactly what caused your accident and injuries and who should be held liable.
WHO IS LIABLE FOR A TRUCK ACCIDENT?
Although truck driver negligence is often a leading cause of accidents, negligence on behalf of the owner of the truck or trailer, the truck driver’s employer, or the trucking company can also lead to severe accidents.
Employers and trucking companies are responsible for hiring responsible drivers and providing them with the training and skills they need to be safe on the roads. A corporation could be held responsible for an accident if it:
- Negligently hired, trained or supervised its employees
- Failed to conduct a background check
- Hired drivers with a history of traffic violations
- Failed to inspect, maintain or repair the truck or trailer
- Overloaded a trailer
- Did not replace defective parts or equipment
