Whether for work or pleasure, millions of Americans venture out onto the open roads every single day. Most of the time, these trips are completed without incident. Unfortunately, there are several dangers on the road that can result in tragedy. Trucks and tractor-trailers are massive machines on the road and when things go wrong, an accident involving these vehicles can be devastating.
There are many elements that can be present in the case of a truck accident, but the main goal of any investigation is to sift through the details and determine exactly why the incident occurred. An obvious reason may be that the driver of the truck made a costly error, leading to the accident. However, there are also less-immediate factors to consider as well. Was the truck driver driving too long at the behest of the trucking company? Was the tractor-trailer not properly maintained, leading to brake failure or other mechanical issues? Truck accidents may be similar to car accidents (and have similar extremely unfortunately consequences), but the trucking industry has many rules and regulations. Having experienced assistance in these situations can make all the difference.
