Handling a Truck Accident Case | Common Causes
Tampa Truck Accident Lawyers Morgenstern & Herd, PLLC handle truck accident and wrongful death cases where often multiple parties may be at fault—negligent truck driver, commercial owner or operator, or a truck manufacturer. We will have to prove their fault and the exact cause of the accident. Although complicated state and federal regulations govern cargo, loading, weight, maintenance and operation of big rigs, serious truck accidents are common, and may be due to:
- Driver fatigue
- Lack of training
Handling a Truck Accident Case | Collecting Evidence
While there may be these safety regulations in place, there are certainly instances where not everyone complies to the rules. There is often provable negligence. We must collect evidence in order to prove it.
For each case, we also review many aspects of the truck’s operation:
- Safety material
- Interstate commerce materials
- Truck company’s training procedures
- Qualifications of truck driver
- Background check of truck driver
- Medical background of truck driver
If anything is found to be out of order, or lacking, we may be able to use this to benefit your truck accident case.
