Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Birmingham
Because there are so many variables involved, not all truck accident cases are handled the same way. Injured victims do have the right to take legal action against truck drivers or their employers if negligence played a role in the accident. Sometimes the injured feel as though it is not worth the trouble or fear undertaking the process. Fortunately, when you have a lawyer on your case, you have strength to take on trucking companies, insurance companies, and the opposition.
These are some of the leading causes of truck accidents:
- Aggressive Driving
- Defective Truck Design, Truck Equipment, or Truck Parts
- Failing to Keep Proper Distance Between Vehicles
- Inadequate Truck Driver Training
- Negligent Hiring Decisions (i.e. Lack of Background Checks)
- Negligent Supervision of the Driver
- Poor Weather Conditions
- Truck Driver Fatigue
- Unsafe Lane Changes
- Unsecured or Improperly Loaded Cargo
With so many possible contributing factors to your truck accident, you do have the right to hold the negligent party responsible for their actions. If you or a loved one has suffered, the first step is to treat your injuries to preserve your health and well-being.
