The most common cause of truck accidents is driver error. Errors on the part of the truck driver can take many forms, including:
In order to take on a trucking company, you need experienced lawyers. The lawyers at Preston & Salango have recovered millions of dollars for trucking accident victims and their families.
Tractor trailers, coal trucks and logging trucks carry heavy loads that are regulated by the government. Due to these extreme weights, the companies securing the loads must properly train workers and do a thorough job to avoid mistakes.
There are specific rules that govern how trucks must be maintained. Certain parts must be replaced after a specific number of miles driven, and detailed logs must be kept.
If a part wasn’t replaced on time or if those responsible for the maintenance of a truck missed something they should have caught, a serious accident may occur.
If, for example, a tire was damaged, a turn signal light was broken, brake pads were worn down, or a suspension system was faulty, it could lead to a tragic accident that even a seasoned truck driver may be unable to prevent. In these cases, those responsible for the truck’s maintenance may be held liable.
