Injured in a Truck Accident? Schedule a Free Consultation with Pringle & Herigstad, P.C.
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 personal injury 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

- Lack of necessary maintenance
