Who Is to Blame in a Truck Accident?
When a collision with an 18-wheeler occurs, the victim and their family are often put in life-changing position. Who do you blame for the accident? If the accident was caused by the trucker's fatigue or recklessness, the truck driver may be to blame. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has regulations regarding how long a commercial driver is allowed to drive on the road, and when these regulations are violated, extreme fatigue and severe mishaps often result.
Causes of trucking accidents in Oklahoma City can include:
- Cell phone use
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Poorly secured loads
- Weather conditions
- Drunk driving
Worn breaks and flat tires may put the owner at fault as well. Did a hitch fail? That may put the product manufacturer at blame. What about if the load was improperly secured, causing it to shift and the truck to flip? In these cases, the loaders of the truck could be at fault. In some cases, the trucking company itself may be at fault for a poorly maintained truck or violated regulations.
Residents of the State of Oklahoma are allowed up to two years from the date of their accident to file a claim against a negligent truck driver. It's important that you contact an attorney soon after your accident to discover your options for recovery and to discuss your case with skilled attorneys. Not only can a personal injury lawyer inform you of your options, they can fully investigate the cause of the accident, gather witness statements and speak with insurance companies on your behalf. Do not go another day suffering from an accident caused by someone else, not without taking legal action to have your pain compensated.
