Causes of Collisions With Concrete Trucks
Concrete truck drivers must abide by traffic laws and other regulations. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to follow traffic rules or trucking regulations and cause accidents as a result. Some of the causes of accidents involving concrete trucks include:
- Mechanical or equipment failures
- Distracted driving
- Driving while drowsy
- Improper maintenance
- Defective parts
- Driving reckless, such as speeding or following too closely
Our truck accident attorneys retrieve evidence and documentation that can help establish what caused your accident and which party or parties are liable. We may retrieve accident reports, speak with eyewitnesses, review photographs of the scene and vehicles involved, and more. Our attorneys may also work with expert witnesses who can testify about the cause of the accident.
