Our legal team and truck injury lawyer, Michael B. Hague, at the Hague Law Offices, offer experienced advice and guidance in all aspects of personal injury claims that stem from truck accidents in North Idaho.

Causes Of Serious Truck Accidents

A truck accident may result from a range of negligent or careless situations such as:

  • Improperly loaded cargo: Many people do not realize that the way in which a truck is loaded can drastically affect its stability. If cargo is improperly loaded, it can be unbalanced or unsecured. A truck with unbalanced cargo is more likely to be difficult for the driver to control and potentially jackknife, while unsecured cargo can fall off the truck onto a roadway and create a dangerous hazard for passing motorists.
  • Driver recklessness: Truck drivers are expected to maintain a high level of professionalism, adhering to federal regulations that govern the trucking industry at all times. When drivers are negligent and disregard the rules, it is other drivers on the road who suffer. Driver negligence and carelessness takes all forms such as:
    • Careless or reckless driving (speeding, driving too fast for conditions, weaving in and out of lanes)
    • Drug and alcohol abuse
    • Texting while driving and using cellphones behind the wheel
  • Truck defects and disrepair: It is up to both the truck driver and any other responsible parties, such as the managing trucking company, to ensure that a truck does not fall into disrepair and become dangerous. When a truck is not properly maintained, both the truck driver and other motorists can suffer. If defects exist on the truck, they must be corrected whenever they are discovered. If undiscovered, the manufacturer of the truck may be liable for any accidents and injuries.

Whether you have sustained a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or have experienced the wrongful death of a loved one in a fatal truck accident, it is important that you know your rights.

Testimonial

I have known and worked with Mike for the last 25 years. I have found him to be a professional adversary and partner in the Courtroom. His tactical acumen makes me wish to stay on the same side as he. I would retain him for any of the three areas of law in which he practices; business, Family Law and Personal injury.
