Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are caused by a number of different reasons, with one of the most prominent reasons being that a truck is overloaded or improperly loaded. There are strict regulations about how a truck is secured and weight restrictions, however given the pressures that drivers face, these regulations are often overlooked.

Since drivers are paid based on the miles they drive and the weight of the load the truck can carry, they frequently overload trucks to make trips shorter. In addition, drivers routinely ignore safety checks that would otherwise identify that a load is improperly secured. When the Joliet Truck Injury Lawyers at Zayed Law Offices take on your case, we will implement an aggressive investigation to help determine the cause of the truck accident. We are committed to holding trucking companies and negligent drivers accountable for their actions.
