Underlying Causes of Truck Accidents

A truck accident may have one or more causes or factors that contribute to its occurrence. For example, an overtired truck driver may not see a large pothole in the road, which causes a blown tire that projects into the path of another vehicle, thereby causing an accident. In this situation, it is important to consider the truck operator’s responsibility, as well as the potential liability of the municipality or other government entity that may be responsible for maintaining the roadway. Looking at an accident from every possible angle will help your lawyer understand the primary cause of your accident and identify all sources of compensation.
