Common Causes of Big Vehicle Accidents in Hartford County

All Connecticut drivers must follow the rules of the road and drive with caution. However, when a large truck driver fails to do so, the resulting damage is likely to be at least significant. There are many possible causes of trucking accidents, but one of the most common is negligence. Negligence is when the truck driver was operating without the proper attention or equipment necessary to keep his or herself and others safe. 

Besides negligence, there are several other leading causes of truck crashes, which include:

  • Defective equipment and mechanical failure
  • Poor road conditions and inclement weather
  • Road construction
  • Driver fatigue
  • Improper truck maneuvering or lane drifting
  • Shifting cargo

Any of the above factors, or a combination of these, can lead to a serious collision. 

Additionally, the trucking company may be found negligent in some cases. Negligence by trucking companies may include:

  • Insufficient driver training
  • Unrealistic deadlines for deliveries
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Failure to check a driver’s qualifications

Truck companies have a duty of care which includes making sure their drivers and vehicles are operating safely. Drivers must receive training and have reasonable deadlines. These deadlines should include time for breaks and sufficient sleep. 

A trucking company’s negligence can contribute to a driver’s accident. Thus, in Connecticut, a personal injury lawsuit can be formed against a trucking company and a driver of a large truck. It’s important to know the legal requirements for such cases. 

An experienced Connecticut truck accident lawyer can help you determine who is at fault in your incident. Contact our law firm serving Bristol today to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer who cares.
