TRUCK ACCIDENTS

When any we travel on the city and county roads we are responsible for maintaining our vehicles up to standards and  expect our auto manufacturers to do their part by being compliant. We entrust the regulated system to follow through with their job when government, company  or privately owned multi ton trucks are traveling at various speeds on the roads that we all share. A government, company or private owner that owns and operates any vehicles, including trucks are responsible for maintenance and for the driver operating it. If the  vehicle maintenance is below the regulated standards or the driver is not operating the vehicle under the law guidelines, the government or company is possibly at fault for your accident.

At Hollingsworth and Mumen, we know how to conduct a thorough investigation, find out who all is responsible and if you have a solid case. You do not pay unless we get paid. See contact us or the immediate free case evaluation page and let us do all of the work.




If an accident is partly due to your own fault, you can still recover from the party that was primarily responsible for your injuries. However, the amount of your recovery will be reduced under what is called 'comparative negligence', or 'comparative fault'. The opposing party's carelessness is compared to yours, and that determines the percentage of liability and compensation is calculated accordingly.

The Large Truck Crash Causation Study undertaken by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration describes 239 crashes in which there was a truck rolled over. Half resulted from failing to adjust speed when driving through curves in the road, (mostly on-and off-ramps), consideration with some other contributing factors or issues are when a load being carried, maintenance of the brakes, road surface, and condition of an intersection. A second major crash contributor  involved  attention  issues,  simply being inattentive, or  having distractions that leads to a sudden direction
change which causes a truck rollover. The third large crash contributor involved over-steering to the point of rolling over and steering corrections resulting in over steering.
