Common Causes of Truck Accidents
These types of collisions can be caused by a variety of different circumstances but, more often than not, are caused by negligent behavior. Our legal team can investigate the specific details of the accident to determine the exact cause and how to proceed in your claim for compensation.
A few of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Fatigued or under rested driver
- Driving over the maximum hours
- Drugged or drunk driver
- Distracted driver
- Faulty parts
- Poor road conditions
Determining Truck Accident Liability
Vermont trucking accident laws allow for several different parties to be found liable in the case of a truck accident:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The cargo manufacturers or loaders
- The owner of the truck (if not owned by the trucking company)
Our truck accident lawyers in Vermont and New Hampshire strive to build a case which illustrates who was at fault for the accident, whether it was the truck driver, company, manufacturers, or someone else. Our mission is to recover the maximum amount of compensation to cover your medical bills and related expenses.
