What Causes a Commercial Truck Accident? Establishing Negligence

Thorough Investigation

Understanding the specifics of who lies at fault after an accident involving a commercial truck involves a careful process of investigation. In order to establish negligence, Brian C. Gutierrez will work diligently to carefully investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident, conducting interviews and gathering evidence to help support our argument and ensure that you’re awarded the appropriate compensation.

Was the Driver Negligent?

Determining liability after a commercial truck accident means establishing that an individual or entity that was directly involved in the operation of the vehicle behaved in a way that was negligent and resulted in your injury or financial losses. Negligence can involve a number of behaviors but almost always involves creating a situation in which other drivers are put at unnecessary risk or danger.

What Negligence Looks Like

Negligence behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle can take many forms. An experienced commercial truck accident attorney like Brian C. Gutierrez can help you establish which party was behaving in a way that was negligible, leading to your unfortunate situation.

Negligence often involves one or a combination of the following behaviors:

  • Driving While Fatigued: Drivers who operate commercial vehicles typically travel long distances over extended periods of time. They must follow specific guidelines to ensure that they are driving safely and avoiding fatigue.
  • Distracted Driving: If a driver is distracted by something like a cell phone, an electronic device, food, or even GPS navigation, they may be found liable for the accident that follows.
  • Improper Vehicle Maintenance: The organization that owns a commercial vehicle has the legal responsibility to keep it maintained and ensure that it can be operated safely.
  • Improper Cargo Loading: If cargo is not loaded onto a commercial vehicle properly, it can shift during transit and cause a potentially serious accident.

What Do I Do After a Commercial Truck Accident?

In the state of Texas, there is a time limit for filing a lawsuit after a commercial truck accident. This is known as the statute of limitations, and it means that you must file your lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. The statute of limitations isn’t the only thing that makes quick action beneficial after a commercial truck accident. The more quickly you’re able to move after your truck accident, the more effectively your team can prove that the other party was responsible for your injury or financial losses.
