Causes of Truck Accidents
Most truck accidents are the direct result of negligence, either on the part of the truck driver, their employer, or the other motorist. Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of truck accidents, as is driver fatigue. An attorney from the firm can help you recover damages for any such case.
Delivery Truck Accidents
Due to their unexpected stops and their habit of double-parking when making deliveries, delivery trucks often cause accidents. Make sure that you have excellent representation if you've been injured in a truck accident.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Truck drivers have no excuse for stepping behind the wheel while intoxicated. Anyone who has been injured or has lost a loved one in an accident caused by a drunk truck driver deserves full compensation. Nagle & Associates can help preserve evidence and establish liability for such an accident.
Electronic On-Board Recorders
Truck drivers have an electronic travel log that keeps a record of the numbers of miles traveled, the amount of time they spend behind the wheel, and the amount of time they spend resting. This log can be valuable evidence for cases of fatigued driving accidents.
Unsafe Lane Changes
Trucks are notorious for their blind spots, but truck drivers can still be liable for sideswipe accidents if they fail to take every precaution before changing lanes. If you were hit by a truck driver who did not bother to check before changing lanes, then you deserve compensation.
Trucking companies can be just as liable for a truck accident as their employees. Perhaps they failed to conduct a proper background check before hiring a driver. Maybe they did not properly train their driver before allowing them behind the wheel. Nagle & Associates can establish such liability.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires truck drivers and their trucking companies to comply with strict safety regulations. These regulations apply to the operation, equipment, and maintenance of commercial trucks, as well as to the training and monitoring of the employees.
Cargo that is not properly secured can fall out of a truck bed or even cause the truck to roll over, causing a serious accident. Each lawyer with the firm will fight tirelessly to establish negligence on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company, or both so that you are compensated.
