Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are notorious for leading to catastrophic injuries and in the worst cases, death. Passenger vehicles simply can’t stand up to the large size and weight of a truck.

All too often, the following factors cause accidents:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Driver Distraction
  • Technical Failure
  • Unsafe Driving
  • Driving Under the Influence

Truckers are under tremendous amounts of pressure to meet deadlines and maximize the value of their time on the road. Although strict rules govern the driving schedules and practices of truck drivers, many accidents occur when corners have been cut. Trucking companies are quick to cover up any incriminating evidence after an accident so it’s important to get an experienced law firm involved in the investigation as soon as possible after the incident.
