Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, including driver error, trucking company negligence, and more. In many cases, truck accidents are entirely preventable, meaning they would never have happened if the at-fault party had not been negligent in some way.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Drugged driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding
  • Inadequate truck maintenance
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Brake failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Defective truck parts
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Inclement weather
  • Truck driver inexperience
  • Truck driver error
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Truck driver impairment

Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

Truck accident liability can be a complex matter, as there are often multiple parties that can be held responsible for a victim’s damages. Generally speaking, the truck driver, the trucking company, and the truck manufacturer (in cases involving defective trucks) can all be held liable for a truck accident.

Additionally, third parties, such as the company responsible for loading a truck’s cargo, can also be held liable for a truck accident under certain circumstances.

The following parties can be held liable for a truck accident:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The company responsible for loading the truck’s cargo

When you choose Maring Williams Law Office, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your truck accident to determine who is liable for your damages. Our truck accident attorneys in Billings, MT will then fight to hold the appropriate parties accountable and seek the maximum compensation you are owed.

Common Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents

Truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries. In many cases, victims are left with lifelong disabilities and extensive physical, emotional, and financial burdens. As such, it is crucial that you seek immediate medical attention after a truck accident, even if you do not think you are seriously injured.

Common injuries sustained in truck accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Internal organ damage
