Causes of Trucking Accidents

Semi-Trucks on HighwayAccidents involving semi-trucks, 18 wheelers and other large commercial trucks are often the most catastrophic types of accidents that individuals endure. If the accident victims survive, their injuries are almost always life-changing and will have a serious financial impact on their family in years to come. In order to recover the maximum compensation that is necessary for current and future needs, it is necessary to determine the cause of the truck accident and all potential liable persons.

Orlando attorney James O. Cunningham helps truck accident victims and their families find the answers they are searching for. Our law firm uses top experts and investigators to uncover all potential causes of the truck accident. We use our experience and dedication to hold negligent people and companies accountable.

Investigating the Causes of Truck Accidents

Arm FractureIn many cases, there is not just one single factor which caused the accident. Rather, there may have been many contributing factors or instances of negligence. Our commitment to recovering full compensation drives our firm to pursue all possible causes, such as truck driver negligence, negligence on behalf of the trucking company or other forms of negligence. We investigate factors, such as:

  • Driver logs: Was the driver being compelled to speed or drive excessively long hours causing driver fatigue?
  • Chemical testing: Was the truck driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs, such as stay-awake drugs?
  • Vehicle maintenance: Was the truck properly maintained? Were maintenance logs properly filled out?
  • Vehicle parts: Did the truck manufacturer or distributor supply the truck with defective parts, such as defective tires, causing a tire blowout?
  • Road conditions: Was the road properly maintained? Were there excessively dangerous conditions which may imply a defective road design?
  • Hiring procedures: Did the truck company make a habit of hiring drivers with a criminal record or history of drug/alcohol abuse?
  • Training procedures: Did insufficient training cause the truck to be loaded improperly which ultimately led to a semi rollover accident?
