The failure to use reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle or a truck constitutes negligence. A few examples of this negligence are:
- Failure to obey traffic signs or signals
- Driving a car under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Defective parts
- Driver fatigue
- Negligent hiring
- Equipment failures
- Inadequate training of drivers
If you are involved in an accident with a truck, it is critical that you preserve the evidence to allow for an immediate investigation of the vehicle and reevaluate the scene to review fresh skid marks and to investigate witnesses as soon as possible after the accident. Time is of the essence.
In addition to motor vehicle accident victims, our clients also include those injured in workplace accidents, premises liability accidents and many other everyday dangers.
You should hire counsel whom you feel comfortable with and whom you trust to handle your claims, as it can be a long process and you will have questions along the way which should be answered to your satisfaction.
At Mills, Mills, Fiely & Lucas, our attorneys zealously handle personal injury claims for our clients. Determining who is at fault in an accident requires determining who is negligent, and therefore responsible for causing the accident.
