Fatal Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Large commercial vehicles, including big rigs and tractor-trailers, are larger and heavier than other vehicles sharing the road. When they collide with smaller passenger cars, the consequences are often devastating. Unfortunately, thousands of people die due to truck accidents across the United States each year. After a fatal truck crash, there are several parties who may be held liable. These include:
- Cargo owners
- Third-party maintenance
- Parts manufacturers
- Cab owners
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- Trailer owners
Truck accident fatalities can occur when any of these parties neglect their duties, which may transpire for a variety of reasons, including:
- Employing unqualified, untrained, or inexperienced drivers
- Underride or override accidents
- Cargo being unevenly distributed or overloaded
- Inadequate maintenance or repair of commercial vehicles
- Failing to check blind spots
- Driver distraction or inattention
- Making excessively swift turns
