Truck Crash Lawyers in Maryland
What Are the Main Causes of Truck Accidents?
Like all accidents, identifying the cause of your truck accident will go a long way in determining whether you’re eligible for compensation under the law. Our experienced commercial vehicle and truck accident lawyers have the resources and know-how to investigate the circumstances behind your crash and determine its cause.
Some typical truck crash causes can include (but are not limited to):
- Alcohol or drug-abuse on the part of the driver
- Driving on the freeway without properly securing a tail load
- Fatigue from driving long-distances without stopping often enough
- Imprudent driving during inclement weather
- Passing at an inappropriate time or otherwise being negligent when changing lanes
- Failing to spot passing cars in the truck’s blind spot
- Tailgating, driving above the speed-limit, or other reckless/aggressive driving behaviors
- Poor maintenance of the trailer or cabin that results in reduced sighting or truck functionality
- Blow-out of tires (or tire treads) that leads to loss of steering control
- Jackknifing as a result of taking a turn too hard
- Rolling over the truck as a result of over-correcting for a sharp turn
- Bad road conditions
- Lane cutting
- Improper storage or loading of hazardous materials
- Improper storage or loading of cargo that results in a release of some or all of the cargo on to the road
