We share highways and city streets with large trucks. These vehicles are essential for interstate commerce, but they can pose major hazards to motorists and pedestrians due to their size. It's for that reason that our Oklahoma City personal injury lawyers always strive to help families who have been affected by trucking accidents. One way that we help is by utilizing the latest in truck accident reconstruction techniques. Since some people are not aware of how these work and what is involved, we'd like to take a moment right now to go over the issue.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include the following:
- Driver fatigue
- Reckless driving
- Unqualified or poorly trained truck drivers
- Driving under the influence/driving while intoxicated (DUI/DWI)
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Mechanical failure
- Overloaded trailers
- Poorly secured loads
These and other factors are what we'll look for during the reconstruction process.
How Trucking Accident Reconstruction Works
During truck accident reconstruction, the cause of the accident is determined and analyzed. Data is collected from the damaged vehicles themselves, police reports, witness testimony, and other sources. They are all evaluated and thoughtfully considered, and the information will prove integral to our Edmond, OK personal injury law firm.
Why Accident Reconstruction is So Important
Accident reconstruction helps us understand the extent of the damage and who was at fault for the collision. This can all be assessed scientifically and objectively through accident reconstruction. Our Oklahoma City trucking accident attorneys will use this information to help build your case and determine fair amounts of compensation for injury, property damage, and negligence.
Fatal Trucking Accidents
Since large trucks can be so dangerous on the road, many fatalities occur because of these accidents. In those cases, a wrongful death lawsuit is filed. Accident reconstruction is especially important in those cases given the loss of life and the suffering the victim's family and loved ones experience as a result.
