Causes of Truck Accidents
Establishing Negligence & Liability
The main factor that is prevalent in any truck accident case is negligence. In order for any accident to occur, someone must be negligent or reckless. The only way to recover fair compensation for a truck accident is to establish the negligence of the truck driver, therefore establishing their liability, as well. Truck drivers and their employers can demonstrate negligence in a number of ways. A truck driver can be liable for distracted driving, such as talking on the phone or eating while driving. Drivers can also be liable for accidents that result from driver fatigue, which can often be proven using electric on-board recorders. Trucking companies can be found liable for a truck accident if they fail to comply with trucking regulations.
Why You Need a Trucking Accident Lawyer
Going up against the trucking companies and their insurance is not something you should do without the representation of a skilled attorney. Trucking companies are large and will use their extensive resources to deny liability and prevent a payout. The moment a truck driver or their company is found liable for an accident, their insurance rates rise. As a result, they will aggressively fight your claim. You cannot expect to obtain maximum compensation by facing these companies alone, so be sure to file your claim with the counsel and representation of a North Carolina trucking accident lawyer from Nagle & Associates, P.A.
