Causes of San Diego Truck Accidents
We Can Help Determine if Negligence Played a Role
Things happen fast during a traffic accident. When a collision occurs between
two cars, it can sometimes be difficult for victims to know what even
happened to cause the accident. This can even more difficult in the case
of accidents that involve a commercial truck. Like other auto accidents,
not every truck accident is the result of negligence, but many of them
are, even when the cause of the collision remains elusive from the driver's
point of view.
Law Offices of Robert Vaage, we understand that in the aftermath of a serious accident, those who
have been wronged may not have the resources or insight to fully assert
their claim of negligence. Numerous negligent actions can contribute to
a dangerous trucking accident and our experienced and trusted
San Diego truck accident lawyer knows how to aggressively assert them on our clients' behalf.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, roughly 3%
of all injury-causing road accidents are caused by commercial trucks.
Due to the size and nature of these vehicles, they tend to cause severe
injuries and can occur for a number of reasons that establish liability
with truck drivers, shipping companies, and even truck manufacturers.
Examples of negligence in a truck accident include:
- Impaired driving (drugs, alcohol, fatigue, etc.)
- Reckless driving (speeding, dangerous merging, etc.)
- Improper loading of the trailer
- Improper upkeep/maintenance of the truck or trailer
- Defective equipment
Uncovering the Truth
If there is a commercial truck accident, there will be an investigation
into the immediate causes by officials. From there, it is up to others
to establish accountability for the harm that was done to any victims.
