Trucking accidents can be caused by speeding, an improperly secured load shifting, inadequate training, defective brakes, unsafe lane changes, and various other reasons. Almost every single one off these reasons is preventable. Loads need to be bolted or secured with straps, truckers need to drive a reasonable speed and under the legal limit, and drivers also need to be conscious of other drivers at all times.
To investigate the cause of the accident, lawyers may check the scene where the accident happened, talk to eye witnesses, and check the trucks digital recording equipment. The investigative process is to determine what happened before, during, and after the accident. Click here to read more about trucking insurance.
