There are many possible causes of truck accidents. The driver may have worked longer hours than permitted; he/she may have skipped his last truck maintenance appointment, resulting in a mechanical failure; he/she may have been speeding, or maybe he/she loaded the truck incorrectly, leading to a jackknife. The operator may have been under the influence of drugs or driving while drunk. Perhaps the truck driver was texting while driving or otherwise distracted.
These are just some examples of how truck accidents happen. The attorneys at Altman & Altman will find out how your accident happened and assess who is responsible. In some cases, more than one party is responsible for truck accident claims. No matter what, we will make sure that the negligent party or parties are held liable for their actions – and turn that liability into the financial compensation you need.Financial Compensation Brings Peace of Mind
