Common causes of Kentucky truck accidents
The first step your attorney takes after an accident is helping you determine what caused the crash to help assess fault and what damages are owed. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Fatigued driving
- Drunk driving
- Brake failure
- Tire blowouts
- Improper loading
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Distracted driving
Once we determine the cause of the accident, we must determine who is the at-fault party. Unlike with auto accidents, there are many different potentially liable parties in a truck accident, including:
- Truck driver
- Trucking or leasing company
- Parts manufacturer
- Shipping or loading company
All of the potentially involved parties make truck accident cases complex. That is why it is imperative that you are represented by a Louisville truck accident lawyer with the knowledge and skill to get you the results you need. Trust Crandall & Pera Law to be on your side after an accident.
