Every year, thousands of truck accidents occur because of driver error. Serious driver errors while on the road, such as distracted driving, may endanger not only the vehicle operator and his passengers, but also everyone who is sharing the road with them.
However, not all accidents are caused by driver error. Truck drivers and companies sometimes commit the mistake of not inspecting the truck prior to driving. Parts and accessories that are commonly overlooked are the tires, the service brakes, the steering mechanism, and the lighting devices. Unfortunately, failure to ensure that the vehicle is at its optimum operating condition before driving increases the chance of injurious, sometimes even fatal truck accidents.
If you believe the truck accident you or your loved one experienced was a result of poor pre-driving inspection, our legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can further investigate your situation to see if it qualifies for a claim.
