Fatal Truck Crashes in Oklahoma
Liability in a truck crash case can be complex. There are many potential defendants, including the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the truck, the shipper of the cargo, and the manufacturer of the truck or its parts. An experienced truck accident lawyer will investigate all potential defendants to determine who is responsible for your injuries or the death of your loved one.
The most common cause of fatal truck accidents is driver error. Truck drivers are often fatigued from long hours behind the wheel and may be driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They may also be distracted by cell phones or other electronic devices. If a truck driver’s negligence caused your truck accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the driver, the trucking company, or both.
