When a Trucking Accident Is Caused by Negligence
While blameless accidents are not unheard of, many trucking accidents are
the result of negligence: a failure to act with reasonable caution or
care. When these otherwise avoidable accidents occur, our Alabama truck
accident attorneys are committed to holding the responsible individuals,
companies, and manufacturers accountable.
The following types of negligence can lead to truck accidents:
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Cell phone use
- Overloaded trucks
- Drunk driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Improper truck maintenance
- Strict driver quotas
- Defective tires or brakes
- Other faulty truck parts
- Driver error
- Lack of sufficient training
Our attorneys are skilled at determining liability in these types of situations.
We carry out in-depth investigations into the circumstances surrounding
your accident, working to determine whether the truck driver, trucking
company, truck manufacturer, or some combination of the three, is at fault.
Throughout the entire process, we are available to answer your questions
and address your concerns, offering compassionate guidance every step
of the way.
