Truck Accidents in North Dakota

In an attempt to ensure commercial trucking companies and drivers do not pose any danger to others, there are very specific federal regulations impinged upon them. This may include standards as to how the vehicles are taken care of, maximum weight limits, and the number of hours they may drive. However, this does not mean that drivers follow the regulations or laws, especially when their bottom line is in question.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

In order to determine how your accident occurred and who was at fault, there must be a thorough investigation. This may include interviewing any bystanders or witnesses, reconstructing the scene of the accident, or documenting evidence. We may also examine the logbook, maintenance records, or review police reports. Our North Dakota truck accident attorneys are extremely thorough and we do not cut corners to finish a case up quickly.

There are many causes of truck accidents, including:

  • Improperly loaded trucks
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Fatigued driver/under-rested drivers
  • Poorly trained/inexperienced drivers
  • Alcohol or drug use while driving
  • Lack of necessary maintenance
  • Failure to adhere to regulations

No matter the cause of your accident, you should not be left paying for another driver's recklessness or negligence. At Pringle & Herigstad, P.C., our legal team is prepared to aggressively fight to hold responsible parties accountable and ensure that you recover maximum compensation.

Who Can Be Held Responsible After a Truck Accident?

The obvious answer is the truck driver, but what most people don't know is that multiple parties potentially could be held liable for a truck accident injury.

Potentially responsible parties include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The owner of the truck
  • The cargo loader
  • The truck manufacturer
