Causes of Truck Accidents

Our Pahrump truck accident lawyers have been handling injury cases for collective decades of legal experience. Figuring out the cause of your truck accident will probably be simple for our team because we have seen so many like it in the past. We can call upon accident reconstruction experts, mechanics, and engineers to provide their insight as well. It is all part of how we go above and beyond for our clients.

Common causes of truck accidents are:

  • Truck driver exhaustion
  • Speeding truck drivers
  • Intoxicated truck drivers
  • Overloaded trailers
  • Poorly loaded trailers
  • Truck part defects

Liability in Truck Accident Cases

Who is the party or person to blame for your truck accident? With our investigation into its cause, we should be able to figure out liability. In legal contexts, the party that is liable for an accident is the same party that should pay for the damages experienced by others involved in the accident. For a truck accident claim, it is not unusual for there to be more than one liable party due to the complexities of owning and operating a commercial truck.

Liable parties for a truck accident might include:

  • Truck driver: The trucker who was controlling the vehicle is likely to blame to some extent, if not a majority extent.
  • Trucking company: The legal rule of respondeat superior may allow you to file a claim against the truck driver’s employer. Truck drivers who are contracted and not employed typically cannot pass liability upwards to the trucking company, though.
  • Mechanic: If a third-party mechanic was hired to work on the truck that hit you, and the accident was caused by a part defect, then that mechanic might be liable.
  • Cargo crew: Oftentimes, cargo placed on a commercial truck is loaded by a third party, not the trucking company or another employee. Crashes caused by cargo defects can put the liability on those cargo crews and their employers.

Process of Filing a Truck Accident Claim

The process behind filing a truck accident claim can be complicated if the details surrounding your case are also complicated. Even a straightforward can become a bit mixed up if you are not familiar with the typical filing processes, court expectations, and so on. We recommend you let our attorneys help you with each step of your truck accident claim process, so you don’t have to worry about those details.

The average process will include:

  • Investigating your accident to determine liability.
  • Calculating damages to see how much you are owed.
  • Filing against the correct insurance company.
  • Responding to any inquiries.
  • Negotiating a settlement.
  • Litigating if a settlement cannot be reached.
