Knowledgeable Orland Park Truck Accident Attorney
Trucking accident cases are unique, complex, and can have multiple negligent parties. In fact, a single accident could be caused by the actions of the driver, freight loaders, vehicle owner, maintenance crew, leasing company, or the employer. Any or all parties could be held liable if their behavior somehow contributed to the injury of another. Some examples of negligent behavior in a trucking accident include:
- Intoxicated driving,
- Improperly secured freight,
- Overloaded trucks,
- Aggressive driving,
- Distracted driving,
- Driver fatigue,
- Poor vehicle maintenance,
- Speeding or driving too fast for road/weather conditions,
- Failure to safely merge or other illegal driving maneuvers,
- Inadequate surveillance of the driver's schedule,
- Pressure from the carrier to move freight too quickly, and
- Drug use (illicit, prescription, or over-the-counter).
Swift and immediate action must be taken to determine which factors and parties may have been responsible after a truck accident. Unfortunately, with so many possibilities, untangling the details is a complex process that requires working knowledge of the trucking industry and its regulations.
