Leading causes of truck accidents in Louisville

Pressures to meet deadlines in a fast paced and highly competitive industry

Unsafe turns and lane changes

It is extremely common for there to be more than one factor that has contributed to the cause of a truck accident. In terms of a successful claim it is important to understand exactly what the cause or causes of the truck accident were, so that you can take appropriate action in terms of your claim.

At Louisville Injury Law Firm, we work collaboratively with you and many trained experts, including accident reconstruction experts to ensure we get to the bottom of the cause of your accident so we can take the steps necessary to file a successful claim for compensation on your behalf.

Responsible parties – who you can take action against

The driver of the truck

The company who owns the truck or the company who employs the driver

The company who completes the maintenance on the truck

The manufacturer of the parts should the truck be deemed defective

Other drivers or pedestrians who contributed to the accident
