Truck Accidents Often Have Devastating Outcomes
In California, it is common to see commercial trucks on our streets and highways. The sheer size and weight of these machines makes them extremely dangerous when operated carelessly. The damage that they do in an accident can be absolutely devastating.
If you have suffered injuries or lost a family member in an accident with a commercial truck you know firsthand just how dangerous these vehicles can be. Right now you probably want answers as to why the accident happened. You also need compensation to face the challenges ahead.
Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?
At Katnik & Katnik Lawyers, we know that truck accidents are not just “accidents.” Often they are preventable events that the trucking company or driver failed to prevent. Here are some common causes of truck accidents:
- Failure to properly maintain the truck or trailer
- Driver failure to follow traffic laws
- Driver fatigue
- Driver impairment
- Failure to load and secure cargo properly
- Loading a truck beyond its maximum weight capacity
When a truck accident does occur, getting to the bottom of why it happened can take some time. Our law firm has experience investigating truck accident cases and will know where to look for answers and what questions to ask. By taking the time to investigate the matter, we will gain a better understanding of the legal options available to you.
