Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Speak with an Experienced Truck Accident Attorney in the Bay Area
At Mitchell Law Firm, we have 30 years of experience as a truck accident lawyer in the Bay Area. We know that truck accidents carry a unique set of challenges that we’ll look at from various angles. For example, an involved semi-truck company might not actually be responsible.
It could instead be the company that contracted the semi-trailer truck, or it could be the driver or the company who contracted the driver. As an experienced car accident attorney team, we’ll take a look at everything to help you take action against the correct party.

Causes of Truck Accidents
There are some roadways in Central California and the Bay Area that seem to have more truck accidents than others. These include I-80, I-580, I-680, I-980 and Highway 101. These areas see 18-wheeler accidents, big rig rollovers and tractor/trailer crashes.
Many of these incidents are caused by the following:
- Intoxicated driving
- Truck condition
- Distracted driving
- Unbalanced load
- Overweight truck
Unfortunately, not everyone comes out of these serious accidents alive. If you are the grieving loved one of someone involved in a fatal truck accident, we’ll be your advocate in your efforts to obtain funds needed to cover those unforeseen costs.
