Why Do Truck Accidents Occur?
Similar to auto accidents, trucking accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Common causes of trucking accidents include aggressive driving, dangerous road conditions, defective brakes, driver fatigue, equipment failure, hazardous cargo, and poor weather.
A commercial truck driver must obey the rules of the road, and the trucking company must employ drivers who are skilled and competent in their profession. When a driver or company fails to adhere to the standard of commercial trucking, they may be held accountable for the accident.
Why Should I Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, of the 35,000 people killed in motor accidents in 2015, four percent of those fatalities involved large truck crashes. The sheer mass of a large truck and tractor-trailer is enough to cause devastating damage during or after a collision with a smaller vehicle.
Trucking companies are well aware of the damage they can cause to other vehicles on the road, and their team is backed with insurance companies and accident investigators. Only an experienced Maryland lawyer has the knowledge to help you build a strong case that will prove fault and damages for the injuries that occur as a result of an accident.
