Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 4,000 large truck accident fatalities in 2008. These needless deaths, together with other motor vehicle fatalities, could have been prevented if certain regulations were followed. For example, all of these conditions could result in a wrongful death situation:
- Abrupt changing of lanes
- Defective tires or other equipment
- Driving in poor road or weather conditions
- Driving while intoxicated
- Fatigued driver
- Lack of adequate truck driver training
- Poorly maintained truck
- Unexpected release of hazardous material or truck load
- Talking on a cell phone or texting while driving
Not all of these conditions are the result of driver negligence. Many causes of truck accident wrongful deaths are traced to the owner of the truck company, the manufacturer of a defective part and personnel responsible for maintaining the truck. A skilled wrongful death attorney will know what strategy to employ to hold all responsible parties accountable.
