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.

At the 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. At our firm, we have recovered millions of dollars for our clients due to the diligence we bring to our cases. If needed, we will conduct our own investigation, consult with experts, and speak with witnesses and order to pursue justice on your behalf.
