Car accidents can have a devastating impact on drivers and passengers.

Common Reasons for Trucking Accidents in Kentucky
Truck accidents can be more involved and complex than any other type of traffic accident. The trucking industry is required to comply with certain federal regulations regarding safety, insurance coverage, and more. Further complicating matters can be local regulations, involvement with the trucking company’s legal staff, and normal complications around determining fault and responsible parties.
Truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver error
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Defective parts
- Driver distraction
- Driver under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
These accidents require specific and thorough investigation. It’s important to act quickly in the wake of a truck accident so important evidence can be gathered and evaluated.
