Finding Underlying Negligence Or A Trucking Violation
Truck drivers are subject to extensive federal regulations — both on the road and off. These regulations affect almost everything they do. They limit the amount of time a trucker can stay on the road and the amount of cargo he or she can carry. They even dictate which markings can be on trucks.
When truck accidents occur on Connecticut roads, violations of federal regulations are often to blame. Related to these violations, however, are many different factors. Discovering why an accident occurred requires a thorough investigation of these factors by a team of experienced attorneys and experts.
At the New Haven law firm of Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we represent truck accident victims in personal injury litigation throughout Connecticut. When truck accidents occur, we often find that violations of federal regulations are involved. By taking a thorough approach to issues of fact and law, we are able to get to the root of the problem and build strong cases for our clients.
There are many reasons truck accidents occur:
- Aggressive driving
- Driver fatigue
- Vehicle maintenance problems/equipment malfunction
- Load issues: overloaded trucks and loads that shift in motion
- Weather-related accidents: drivers who fail to use proper care
- Impaired driving/drug and alcohol use
- Inadequate training and supervision
