Common Causes of Truck Accidents
There are endless reasons why a truck driver can cause an accident, which
mostly occurs as a result of them failing to follow their rules, regulations,

- Violations of industry standards
Proving Truck Driver Negligence in West Virginia
In order to keep drivers and the other motorists on the road around them
safe, there are a number of rules which have been put in place for truck
drivers. There are currently national regulations in place that place
limitations on how many consecutive hours truck drivers can work daily
and weekly. The three regulations most commonly broken by truck drivers
are the 14-hour drive window, mandatory rest breaks, and the 60-70 hour
rolling weekly limit. Truck drivers who choose to drive over those limits
are endangering themselves and others on the road. This information can
be accessed via digital and analog log books. A skilled West Virginia
personal injury attorney can launch an extensive investigation into your
truck accident injury claim to find out the details of what happened and
who should be held responsible for the damages.
