Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Through our thorough investigation of your case, we will determine the underlying cause of the truck accident and pinpoint the specific factors contributing to the other party’s liability. Our Fallbrook truck accident attorneys have discovered some of the most common causes of collisions involve:

  • Truck driver fatigue or distraction
  • Impaired driving
  • Failure to keep a lookout or to check blind spots
  • Unsafe merging or lane changing
  • Illegal U-turns
  • Defective parts
  • Mechanical failures
  • Negligent truck maintenance
  • Unsecured or improperly secured loads

Potentially Liable Parties

One of the many complexities of truck accidents is that the liable party may not be obvious. You may initially blame the driver. However, our investigation may uncover defective brakes, which would make the manufacturer liable. In general, parties who may be liable for the truck accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company/truck driver’s employer
  • The maintenance provider
  • An auto part manufacturer
  • The cargo owner
  • The party responsible for loading the cargo

So many different parties are involved in manufacturing, maintaining, and operating commercial vehicles, and they all have opportunities to be negligent and cause a dangerous accident. An experienced truck accident attorney can help you identify all liable parties based on the specific circumstances of your case.

Gathering Concrete Evidence

Even if you did not contribute to your accident, an insurance carrier might still dispute your claim. Strong evidence is vital to rebutting any pushback you may face in the claims process as insurers fight to protect their bottom lines. Our lawyers will gather factual evidence by launching a thorough investigation. In many cases, we hire expert witnesses to testify in court as to what likely caused the accident and who was responsible. Our attorneys may also gather the following forms of evidence:

  • The accident report, if one exists
  • Vehicle maintenance records for the truck involved in the accident
  • Dashcam footage
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • GPS data
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Black box data
  • The truck driver’s cell phone records
