Who is Responsible for a Fatal Truck Accident?

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, there were 4,067 fatalities in crashes involving large trucks in 2015, an increase of 4.1 percent over 2014 and the highest since 2008.

What causes a fatal truck accident? Each case is unique, but some common causes include:

  • Driver error – According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, driver error is 10 times more likely to be the cause in a crash than any other factors.
  • Equipment failure – This can range from a design or manufacturing flaw, to safety issues like worn tires.
  • Weather conditions –  In adverse weather conditions,  trucks have a more difficult time stopping than passenger cars do.
  • Improper loading – An overloaded or improperly loaded truck presents an increased risk of a rollover or accident.
  • Safety Violation – Either the truck driver or the trucking company has violated federal and state safety violations, resulting in a preventable accident.

An experienced fatal truck accident lawyer will work with investigators and industry experts to determine what caused the accident and who is at fault.

Marion not only is an accomplished lawyer who gets great results, but also she brings genuine compassion and zealous advocacy to each person she represents. Our firms have worked together on important cases and I look forward to future opportunities to work together. Rena Leizerman

First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

My car accident last year kept me out of work for over a month. I was afraid of losing my job, the medical bills were piling up and the insurance company would not return my calls. I made the right decision after calling Caroline Munley. She fought the insurance company and helped me get back on my feet. I wholeheartedly endorse her. Personal Injury Client
