The Causes of Truck Accidents

One of the reasons trucking collisions are more complex than car vs. car accidents is that there can be multiple parties at fault. Often, it's not just the carelessness of the truck driver.

At Tabor Law Firm, we advocate for truck accident victims throughout Indiana who are suffering from serious injuries and grieving families mourning a wrongful death. With decades and decades of trucking litigation experience, we know how to get to the bottom of a collision and determine who is at fault while maximizing your potential recovery funds.

We Uncover All The Liable Parties

When a truck accident happens, it is important to work with a lawyer as soon as possible so an in-depth investigation can begin. Do not give the trucking company a chance to do repairs and get rid of crucial evidence. Hire a lawyer who will work with experts to fully and completely examine the tractor and trailer for potential defects which contributed to the collision.

We will work quickly to find all of the liable parties, which may include:

  • Truck driver: We will find out if the driver was violating the rules of the road or driving distracted, drunk or fatigued.
  • Trucking company: While many drivers today are technically independent contractors, many trucking companies engage in shady business practices. This can include not providing the proper driver training, forcing drivers to spend too many hours on the road without rest, not performing proper maintenance or hiring drivers who are unfit.
  • Truck/trailer/parts manufacturer: For accidents caused by jackknife, tire blowout, brake failure or rollover, parts manufacturing companies may be to blame. We will work with engineers and other experts to determine if shoddy manufacturing played a role.
  • Loading company: A company that overloads a trailer or tank could be held liable if there is a spill of goods or hazardous materials that causes injuries.
