- Driver Error – Many commercial drivers are rushing to get their jobs done and may be speeding or driving recklessly in the process. Additionally, some drivers may be pulling long hours on the road and experience fatigue. Other accidents are caused by inadequate training or supervision. Depending on the circumstances, the driver and/or the driver’s employer may be liable.
- Vehicle Malfunction – If motor vehicle defects, such as brake failure, caused the accident, the vehicle's manufacturer or whoever is responsible for the vehicle’s maintenance may be liable.
