Oklahoma City Truck Accident Attorneys
Truck Driver Errors
A truck accident can have many causes. At the law office of Joseph J. Reinke, we carefully investigate trucking accidents to determine what happened and why. Fortunately, federal regulations require trucking companies to maintain maintenance records, driver log books and training records that can offer vital clues. Many tractor-trailers also carry black boxes that hold valuable information.
Frequently the result of our investigation reveals that truck driver errors are the cause of trucking accidents. Examples of truck driver errors include:
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive speed
- Truck overloading and weight violations
- Driving at excessive speeds in adverse weather conditions
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check breaks, tires and lights
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
