Understanding the Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can result in devastating injuries and property damage. It is important to understand the common causes of these accidents to help prevent them and protect yourself on the road. At Skipper Law, LLC, we have handled numerous truck accident cases in Crofton and Bowie, and we have identified some of the most common causes:
- Driver Fatigue: Truck drivers often work long hours and may push themselves to meet deadlines, leading to fatigue. This can impair their judgment and reaction time, increasing the risk of accidents.
- Distracted Driving: Just like any other driver, truck drivers can become distracted by their phones, GPS devices, or other distractions, taking their attention away from the road.
- Improper Truck Maintenance: Neglecting regular maintenance and inspections can result in mechanical failures, such as brake failures or tire blowouts, which can cause accidents.
- Speeding: Truck drivers who exceed the speed limit or fail to adjust their speed to road conditions may not be able to stop in time to avoid a collision.
- Driving Under the Influence: Truck drivers who operate their vehicles under the influence of alcohol or drugs put themselves and others at risk.
Identifying the cause of a truck accident is crucial for building a strong case. Our experienced Crofton and Bowie truck accident attorneys at Skipper Law, LLC can investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident and gather evidence to hold the responsible parties accountable.

Who Is Liable After a Truck Accident?
It is essential that every element of a truck accident is carefully investigated. The primary cause of the accident must be determined, and from there, a specific party can be held liable for the accident.
Some of the parties that can be held responsible are:
- The truck driver: In many circumstances, the driver of the 18-wheeler or delivery truck will be held responsible because that party is in control of the vehicle.
- The company: The company that hired the driver can be held responsible if the driver has a history of negligent behaviors that could have tipped them off when making the hiring decision.
- The maintenance company: If the accident was caused by break failure or another repair issue, the repair or maintenance crew can be held responsible.
- The vehicle manufacturer: If it is found that the vehicle or its components are faulty, the manufacturer can be held responsible.

I recommend this law firm to any homeowner. Matthew, Jeffrey, and the entire team were very thorough and helpful to me. In addition to their legal expertise the level of service and professionalism far exceeded my expectations.- Kevin F.
Matt has been an incredible asset to me a small business owner. I needed an attorney with a vast knowledge in the legal field and Matt provided that. Matt has provided various services to my organization ranging from reviewing employee/employer agreements- Joshua E.
I cannot express how happy I am that I hired Matthew D. Skipper to handle my case. It was like David vs. Goliath where a young, soon to be King David won and SO DID WE! It did not take our opposition (a large Wall Street firm that we sued, including their "team of attorneys") long to realize that they were headed to very embarrassing, public defeat that would have most likely garnered national attention; and as a result they quickly conceded defeat! As if counter-suing and defeating a multi-billion dollar fortune 500 firm wasn't enough, after calling their bluff Matthew advised me to demand that they also pay 100% of my legal fees to his law firm AND THEY DID IT!!! As I recall how Matthew crafted an extremely well written counter claim against our opponents and delivered what could only be described as a majestic oral argument before the Federal Court, I cannot help but think that King David himself would have been proud to have Matthew D. Skipper of Skipper Law, LLC as his legal counsel! If you need an attorney, do NOT leave this page until you contact Skipper Law at: (443) 274-6106.- M. Smith, President of Wealthcare Financial Group, Inc.
