Truck Accidents on Dangerous Highways & Roads
Because of their tremendous size, long stopping distance and momentum, trucks are especially at risk of accidents on dangerous highways and roads. Truck accidents can be the direct result of the road or dangerous conditions on the road, such as:
· Poor lighting
· Faultydirectional signals
· Inadequate signs and traffic signals
· Failure to adequately manage traffic through road construction sites
· Lack of/inadequate hardware for the road
· Design defects
· Construction defects
· Significant amount of blind spots
· Significant amount of potholes
· Roadway is too narrow, steep or curvy
Liability in Truck Accidents on Dangerous Roads
Government entities, the state, the city or the county in which the road is maintained under may be the responsible parties for road defects that result in truck accidents. In these cases, there is a very limited window of opportunity available for victims to pursue relief and damages for the accident they have been involved in. Other liable parties may include the truck driver himself as well as the employer, if it is determined that the employer had pressured the driver for time constraints and delivery times.
