Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors and can result in serious injuries or even death. When you are involved in a truck accident, it is important to understand the cause of the accident to determine who is at fault.

The most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Speeding
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Defective auto parts
  • Inclement weather
  • Poorly maintained roads

It is important to note that determining the cause of a truck accident can be difficult. In some cases, the truck driver may have been at fault, while in other cases, the trucking company may have played a role in the accident. Additionally, if the truck itself was defective, the manufacturer may be held responsible for the accident.

Who is Liable for a Truck Accident?

One of the most challenging aspects of a truck accident case is determining who is liable for the accident. In a car accident case, the driver who caused the accident is typically responsible for any damages. However, in a truck accident case, there may be multiple parties who are liable for the accident.

The parties who may be held liable for a truck accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The manufacturer of the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck’s parts
  • The cargo loading company
  • The truck’s maintenance company

When you are involved in a truck accident, our firm can work hard to identify the liable parties and hold them accountable for their actions. We can review the details of your case and help you understand your legal options.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
