Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Hold Responsible Parties Accountable for Their Mistakes

Semi-trucks usually weigh 20 to 30 times more than the average automobile. In order to safely operate them, drivers must always be focused on the road and avoid distractions. When a commercial truck driver acts negligently behind the wheel, just one mishap can lead to a devastating truck accident. Consequences could be severe, from catastrophic injury to even wrongful deaths.

Identify the Most Common Causes of Truck Accidents

By dealing with numerous truck accident cases in the past, we have come to recognize some frequently occurring causes of truck accidents. With our support and experience reviewing critical evidence, we can prove that the dangerous collision was not your fault, and that the truck driver is liable for any number of reasons, including:

  • Exhaustion: Truck drivers often spend 14 hours or more on the road, leading to drowsiness that cripples their ability to control the massive vehicle.
  • Incompetence: The demand for truckers is high, resulting in companies sending out truck drivers that have not had enough time to be properly trained.
  • Inadequate maintenance: If a commercial truck has not been properly maintained, failures in its equipment can lead to a collision.
  • Speeding: There is a high degree of pressure on truck drivers to meet strict timelines. If they speed to get to their destination on time, everyone around them is in serious danger.
