How We Investigate Negligent Truck Drivers
Large vehicle wrecks can be complex cases and will require some serious unbiased investigation. The first step in the investigation is to find out exactly what happened and what is being reported by both parties. This investigation is undertaken by both state and federal agencies since these accidents can be often times very serious. Situations that can contribute to a serious or deadly truck accident including the following:
|Adverse weather conditions||Faulty or defective tires, brakes or other system|
|Tired driver||Unevenly loaded truck|
|Human error||Overloaded truck|
|Drunk or drug intoxicated driver||Loose cargo falling to roadway|
|Driver violating||Truck manufacturing design flaws|
|Faulty truck parts||Others|
Trucking accidents may involve multiple vehicles and several fatalities or serious injuries. The process of recovering compensation can be lengthy, as several liable parties may be identified during the investigation.
The causes of the truck crash may also be in dispute. While one case may be related to a failure of a truck part or system, another could be the result of a driver who has not adhered to federal regulations regarding hours spent behind the wheel and who is impaired through lack of sleep. Others could involve the company that loaded the truck. It is vital that every possible liable party is identified. We have a great insight in how to correctly pursue the maximum possible in compensation from any liable party.
