Bad Road Conditions Are Often Due to Bad Weather
Bad road conditions are often due to bad weather in many areas. This sets the stage for accidents of all kinds, including truck accidents. However, this in no way excuses the truck driver from taking steps to make sure that he or she takes extra care to compensate for the inclement weather.
Truckers can be held liable if they fail to respond to poor weather. In such cases, pulling over might be the best option. Additionally, high winds can cause a tractor-trailer to rollover or cause the driver to lose control.
Road Structure Plays a Part
If a road is poorly maintained or marked, this could affect the trucker’s ability to control his truck. In addition, if the trucker fails to provide an alternate route that might better serve travel, this could be considered negligence. Winding, single-lane roads require greater caution.
If you have been injured in a truck crash due to poor road conditions, the attorneys at Isaacs & Isaacs will take a look at the trucker’s liability and determine fault. We understand that recovering from a truck crash is hard enough, and we try to get the maximum compensation so that financial worries will be eased.
