The Causes of Truck Accidents

One of the reasons trucking collisions are more complex than car vs. car
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

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.
