Causes of Override Truck Accidents

The cause of an override accident is usually easy to determine. We handle cases for clients injured in accidents resulting from circumstances such as these:

  • Truck tailgating
  • Truck traveling too fast for conditions
  • Truck unable to stop because of faulty brakes and poor maintenance

Scenarios such as these usually involve violations of traffic laws or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) trucking regulations. When combined with other factors such as driver fatigue or overloaded trucks that are hard to control, override accidents become even more likely.

We investigate these and all injuries from trucking accidents by methods like reviewing the driver log books, interviewing witnesses including first responders and consulting with accident reconstruction experts. Our law firm has the resources and contacts needed to conduct in-depth investigations of all trucking accidents, including override accidents.
