Trucking accidents can be caused by an array of factors, from the negligent trucker who sped and drove too many hours without rest in order to meet a tight delivery schedule, to the engineer responsible for a dangerous highway design. At Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan, LLC, we work tirelessly to fully investigate truck accident cases and identify all responsible parties whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident — and ultimately to our clients’ suffering. We pursue full accountability in order to provide clients with the compensation and peace of mind they deserve in the aftermath of a serious or fatal truck accident.

Finding the Cause of the Truck Accident
Semi truck accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, and other commercial trucking accidents require thorough investigation into not only the factors surrounding the accident, but also conduct leading up to the accident. For example, a trucking company’s history of failing to keep proper vehicle maintenance log books may be critical information in a truck accident investigation, particularly if shoddy brakes or other truck part contributed to the accident. Our investigation team analyzes all potential truck accident causes, such as:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Speeding, reckless driving, or drunk driving
- Driving while texting, e-mailing or using other electronic device
- Improper loading of the trailer bed
- Improperly maintained or repaired truck parts
- Tire defects, brake defects, and other trucking defects
- Defective or dangerous roads
- Negligent hiring of truck drivers
We Work to Hold Those Responsible for Your Truck Accident Injuries
Once all potential angles have been evaluated, our truck accident attorneys work meticulously to demonstrate liability for the accident. We hold negligent truck drivers, commercial trucking companies, manufacturers, and other responsible parties accountable. Additionally, we thoroughly investigate ownership and operation of the commercial vehicle. Many times, the owner and operator of the truck may be separate entities. Likewise, the cab and trailer may have separate owners or may be leased. We identify all potential commercial insurance policies that may be involved.
