Causes of Trucking Accidents
Oklahoma experiences a high number of trucking accidents every year. With hundreds of commercial trucks crossing our roadways everyday, unfortunately, a small portion will be involved in serious injury accidents. Causes of negligent truck crashes are wide-ranging, and often involve:
- Driver fatigue
- Inadequate driver training
- Driver inattention
- Use of drugs or alcohol
- Unsafe driving conditions
- Following too closely
- Improper turning
- Insufficient vehicle maintenance
Regardless of the unique circumstances surrounding your accident, the experts at The Tawwater Law Firm can perform the investigation necessary to determine its cause, and as appropriate, build a successful legal case.
A Complex Area of Law
The commercial trucking industry is regulated by a set of comprehensive and highly detailed federal and state laws. Trucking regulations cover a wide variety of issues concerning vehicles, their drivers, and the establishment and operations of commercial trucking companies. Understanding these complicated regulations is one of the most important factors in determining the effectiveness of your trucking accident representation. For example, discovering that the driver drove beyond the accepted hours of service, weight restrictions were violated, or driving logs were tampered with, are important factors that can dramatically swing a case in the plaintiff’s favor.
