Any Louisville truck accident lawyer from Paul A. Casi, II, P.S.C. takes on all types of collisions involving commercial trucks; these cases often involve a wide range of causes and contributing factors. We know how to identify and expose negligent and wrongful acts to our clients’ benefit, helping them seek the full and fair compensation they need.

Some of the problems that cause trucking accidents include:

  • Lack of training and inexperienced drivers
  • Overloaded and over-sized trucks
  • Poor maintenance of trucks, including brakes and tires
  • Driver fatigue and hours-of-service violations
  • Speeding over the limit or driving too fast for conditions
  • Drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Safety system problems, such as issues with reflectors, lights and other warning devices
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to check blind spots

Many of these causes can be attributed to a company’s attempt to cut costs. Trucking companies don’t want to invest in training or pay higher wages for more experienced drivers. They don’t want to pay for maintenance. The longer drivers stay on the road, the more money they make, so they drive when they’re tired. Unfortunately, serious accidents are often the result.

Most trucking accidents that occur in Kentucky and across the United States are preventable. The behavior and circumstances that lead to these collisions can be avoided if people and truck companies exercise proper caution and care. Unfortunately, mistakes are made and some truck companies choose to put profits above safety. Even the playing field with our truck accident lawyers in Louisville. Call (502) 234-7451 to learn more.
