Some of the common causes of Gwinnett County truck accidents include following other vehicles too closely, making improper left turns, and violating traffic laws. Depending on the situation, there could be multiple parties at fault, such as the driver, their employer, or the truck maintenance company. A skilled attorney could review a claimant’s case and determine the liable party to litigate a claim properly.

Truck Driver Negligence

One common cause of truck accidents in Gwinnett County is when a driver acts negligently while behind the wheel. If a truck driver becomes distracted, uses their cellphone, or drives while impaired by alcohol or drugs, they could cause an accident.

Additionally, if a trucker does not operate their vehicle safely according to the traffic or weather conditions, this behavior may also result in a devastating collision. For instance, if a driver is traveling too fast when there is low visibility, ice, snow, or rain, they may be liable for any harm that occurs as a result.

Accidents Caused by a Trucking Company

Gwinnett County truck accidents also may occur when a trucking company pushes its employees to drive beyond federal regulations and state laws to maximize their shipments. For instance, if an employer does not allow a truck driver to take their legally required resting periods and breaks, they may fall asleep behind the wheel and cause an accident.

Additionally, if a trucking company does not take proper care to hire and train qualified drivers, this may leave them responsible for the actions of their employees. If an employer fails to properly supervise their employees, such as administering drug tests when necessary, they may become liable for any accidents that result.

In situations where improper truck maintenance causes an accident, it could lead to multiple liable parties. If the trucking company failed to schedule routine maintenance checks, they may be at fault. However, if the truck repair company did not adequately fix a broken vehicle, the court may find this party negligent.

Potential Injuries

Because of the extreme brute force that occurs in a Gwinnett County truck accident, this may cause some motorists and passengers to sustain significant injuries. These may include trauma to the head, spine, neck, back. Depending on the severity of the accident, a claimant may become permanently paralyzed or may suffer serious cuts and lacerations. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for these types of accidents to be fatal.

Consult an Attorney to Discuss Causes of Truck Accidents in Gwinnett County

If you suffer injuries in a trucking accident, one of the most important steps to take is to retain an attorney that has experience in handling such cases. The sooner that an attorney can become involved in an injured party’s claim the sooner they could begin to collect evidence and contact accident reconstructionists to determine the cause of the incident. Additionally, an experienced legal representative could send out letters notifying all potential defendants of their intent to file a claim.
