Almost all truck accidents have one thing in common: they could have been avoided if the driver had engaged in safe driving practices, and the roads were well maintained. At Montgomery Ponder, we perform a detailed investigation into each truck accident to discover who caused the accident and hold them legally accountable for their actions.

Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:

  • The truck driver was fatigued and had driven over the legal limit of daily driving hours
  • Drunk or reckless driving
  • Unbalanced or poorly loaded trailers
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Faulty or worn-out braking systems
  • Poorly trained truck drivers
  • Other reckless drivers on the road that cause a multiple-vehicle collision
  • Poor road conditions

How is Liability Determined in a Truck Accident?

Truck accidents or other commercial vehicle accidents are different from regular passenger vehicle accidents because they often involve several different levels of liability. For example, in a truck accident you may be able to hold any of the following parties responsible for your injuries, depending on what caused the accident:

  • The Truck Driver
  • The Trucking Company
  • The Manufacturer or Cargo Company
  • The Cargo Loaders

Determining liability and who should be responsible to pay for your damages can be a complicated process. Let us help you.
