Causes Of Tractor-Trailer Accidents
When a tractor-trailer is involved in any traffic accident causing injury or property loss, an important challenge in an investigation includes determining all liable parties, as well as determining which insurance policies apply. We routinely handle truck accident cases involving:
- A jackknife
- A rollover
- Illegal lane change
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Overloaded trucks and debris
The truck driver, his dispatching company, the owner of the truck cab, the entity responsible for loading cargo in the trailer and any other person or entity connected to the truck or its contents may share some responsibility for the accident, depending on circumstances.
Examining The Driver Logbook
After any semi tractor-trailer wreck, the driver’s log will be an important piece of evidence to examine. The driver’s log will contain information on the driver’s hours and whether he was properly rested. We will determine whether all key components of the tractor-trailer were in good working condition:
- Hauling rig
- Door latches
