Truck Accident Causes - Virginia Lawyers


Truck accidents are usually caused by specific acts or failures to follow rules by trucking companies and the truck drivers. An experienced lawyer who does “Only Injury Law” can help you recognized the unsafe acts or failures to act by the tracking companies.

The cause of truck accidents involving large trucks/autos that result in serious injuries, can usually be blamed on companies and truck drivers because of:

• Aggressive driving by truck drivers
• Failure to inspect truck tires, brakes, lights
• Tailgating by truck drivers
• Cell phone use by truck drivers
• Driver fatigue
• Failure to install blind spot mirrors
• Jackknifing caused by truck driver’s actions
• Speeding while ignoring reduced speed limits for trucks
• Inadequate truck driver training
• Overloaded trucks
• Poorly maintained truck brakes
• Failure to signal lane changes
• Loss of control – leaving road
• Loss of retread tires/leaving debris in roadway

Auto occupants are sharing the road with giant trucks. When a wreck between a truck and smaller vehicle occurs, 77% and 86% of those killed are the drivers of the smaller vehicles. (cars, SUVs & motorcycles) There are life-changing, serious injuries to the occupants of the smaller vehicles.

Our lawyers keep up with the latest trucking accident news and information. We use our legal and practical experience to stay one step ahead of the trucking companies and their insurance carriers.
